With so many ways to stay connected, it can be difficult to know where to look for new information about library services, collections, and events. As librarians, we struggle with this as well (and we’re information professionals!). To help, we offer many ways for students, faculty, and staff at Loyola Marymount University to connect with us online and learn about new happenings at the William H. Hannon Library.
If you’re looking for up-to-the-minute information about the library, your best bet is to follow us on Twitter. This is where we post about service alerts, changes to our hours, new services and collections, upcoming programs, and even live-tweet events that are happening in the moment. We also like to use Twitter to post about cats, share the latest info-related news, and rail against fascists. As you do.
If you’re looking for unique objects from Archives and Special Collections, images from LMU Digital Collections, or pretty pictures of the library, then follow us on Instagram. We also use this space to post photos from library programs, like our annual Milk and Cookies event. And then there are things like this.
Happenings @ Hannon
Now in its tenth year, Happenings @ Hannon is our monthly e-newsletter dedicated to the most essential information you need to know. Here you will find previews of upcoming events, special reports from library leadership, and staff and student highlights (read past issues in LMU Digital Commons). If you follow nothing else, at least subscribe to Happenings @ Hannon and stay up to date!
We don’t use Facebook quite as much as we used to (because user privacy), but we still utilize the LMU Library Facebook page to keep our followers informed about upcoming events and new posts from LMU Library News.
Can’t find what you’re looking for on any of the above platforms? Don’t forget about our website! Social media posts are fleeting. The William H. Hannon Library website contains information about where to begin your research, essential library services for students and faculty, how to request help from a librarian, and detailed information about our hours, collections, and mission.
Finally, if you are not able to find what you’re looking for or you simply prefer to ask us directly, contact us via DM on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, or simply email us.
