The LIS participated in the recent NWU Open Days. Prospective students at Vanderbijlpark had the opportunity to take part in a library tour presented by the Library staff. At the library entrance there were crossword puzzles where learners had to find words regarding the library. The learners enjoyed this activity, and were cheered on while trying to solve the puzzles. An information session was provided by library staff in the the general tent.
Judging by the numbers of prospective students and their parents visiting the library for online applications, the Ferdinand Postma Library also participated with success. Learners had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the available spaces and facilities. The staff welcomed the visitors to the Information Commons with a brief talk on the services and resources on offer at the library.
The new LIS Undergraduate Survival Guides were available for prospective students at all libraries.
A big thank you to staff who reached out and assisted in this event.
