As part of the library’s outreach effort, reference librarian Steven Profit is collaborating with the staff of the College of Charleston’s radio station to promote the library to the college radio audience. A disc jockey or DJ himself, Steven mentions the library resources he consults in scripting his on-the-air segments.
This outreach effort is beneficial for both the library and the radio station. The hot link to the radio station’s streaming webcast is featured prominently on the library’s web page, making the broadcast easily accessible to all who visit the library online. Steven will assist the radio staff in selecting brief narratives to adapt for theatrical radio productions. The radio station has purchased 40 cool, retro-looking headphones that will be donated to the library. The headphones, emblazoned with the station’s logo, will advertise CofC Radio and add to Circulation Services headphone cache. Students can request the headphones at the library’s main circulation desk.
