Mahikeng Library book exhibition

On the 27-31 July the NWU LIS Mahikeng had the pleasure of hosting the 2018 book exhibition.


This exhibition demonstrated a true example of embedded librarianship by taking the library to the faculties.  All the activities were organised in each faculty building which meant that the academics and library staff as well as book suppliers had a chance to interact throughout the day for 3 days.  The following suppliers accepted the invitation and took part in the exhibition:  Vuga Book Supplies, Van Schaik, AMS and Best Books. The participation from academics and students was positive throughout the three days, the DVC also paid a visit.  This initiative enhanced patron driven acquisition as not only academics could select books, but an opportunity was provided to students as well.  The overall turnout was impressive.   Feedback was taken from faculty members as well as students, which would be incorporated in future book exhibitions.
