Bazaar Appearances

Every semester, Copley Library gets a chance to greet incoming students and breathe the fresh air by joining the Alcala Bazaar. Held in the first few weeks of the new semester, the Alcala Bazaar not only allows students to explore the diverse opportunities and organizations available on campus, it also allows the library to personally interact with the USD community and introduce our many resources. For the past few years, Copley has been well represented at the Bazaar by our Access Services department and Social Media Committee.

We pass out goodies, including pens, post-its, food and water. Students come by to pick up flyers with our current hours or to ask about work study opportunities.


Happy students

Even President Harris made an appearance this year.

The question we get the most, though, is how to pronounce Copley. We assure you, it’s “Cop-ley,” not “Cope-ley.” Along with efforts to distribute information about the library’s services and name pronunciation, Copley’s Social Media Committee conducts a survey on social media usage among students. Students tell us what platforms they use and what kind of content they want to see, and we take the opportunity to listen and shape Copley’s social media.

By the end of the Alcala Bazaar, we hope that students take away as much as we do from the experience. Until next time.
