Abstract
Are you looking for a new way to reach out to students and draw them into your library? Why not consider implementing a Personal Librarian (PL) Program? In fall 2015 Kent State University Performing Arts Library started a PL Program to undergraduate and graduate level music, theatre, and dance majors. This poster provides tips, best practices and ideas to consider when planning a new outreach program both to students on campus and online. Marketing strategies, web presence, programming ideas, classroom visits, lessons learned, and the benefit of faculty buy-in will also be addressed.
