The first “Electronic Information Fair” was held to increase undergraduate’s attention and utilization rate on electronic information by promoting and showing the use of electronic academic services: Electronic journals, Academic databases, E-Learing. It was held by the Central Library at the Catholic University of Korea (CUK) on October 23.
Nine Service providers (Nuri media, Damon media, Mirace, Contents portal, KISS, CAS, EBSCO, Elsvier, ProQuest) that Central Library subscribes to participated in this event. Also, 215 students participated in and 95% of them who responded said the event was satisfying, according to the Electronic Information Management Team in the Central Library.
“We hope many CUK students continually have an interest in the events of the library,” said Sim Jae-sun in the Electronic Information Management Team. She added, “Academic services that the library subscribes to will be of help them in studying and getting a job.”
The event had two parts, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Students who participated in the event received explanations about the services of each resource at nine booths installed in the study community and The CU:BE (rest zone) in the library. Big monitors in each booth gave instructions so viewers could understand their academic services easier.
The academic information management team offered many events as well for inducing participation of students in the opening event, including a 100% win gift raffle. After listening to explanations and collecting three of the booths’ visit stickers, students could enter for a 100% win gift raffle. Gifts included an Ipad, Airpod, and gift vouchers.
The team also provided movie tickets to ten attendances of the first part of the event and Starbucks 10,000 won gift cards to ten participants of the second part on a first come, first served basis in the opening event.
