Bracken Library's Lobby Provides Space for Students, Organizations to Meet

Personnel from the Ball State University Career Center set up an outreach table to connect with students who were visiting Bracken Library from February 20 through 23, 2007. They met with 141 students to critique their resumes, and they discussed careers and tips for interviewing and job hunting with an additional 74 students. Bracken Library was chosen as the sole location for Resumania outreach this year due to its high volume of visitors.

“Bracken Library remains a great location for outreach activities such as Resumania,” said Dr. Joseph P. Goodwin, Ball State University Career Center. “Students expressed their appreciation for the convenience of having their resumes reviewed there. We continue to appreciate the library’s support of our efforts.”

Libraries reinforce the spirit of learning and support knowledge-interaction whether the resource is a book, a journal, audiovisual media, or a discussion with one's study group. More than 4,600 students visit Bracken Library at Ball State University daily, making it a favorable location for outreach efforts by campus service offices.
