LVSTuesdays

LVSTuesdays are 90-minute sessions for pitching ideas for new projects, providing project updates, and networking. 



LVST STAT

LVST STAT has two meanings: (1) Second Tuesday At Two, which is the date and time of the sessions, and (2) "urgent" or "rush" in medical terms. LVST STAT sessions are a platform for ideation in which audience members are presented with a problem and participate in guided activities to elicit actions or solutions to address that problem.

The Library Vision Support Team launched the Ignite Challenge, a series of events that brought together staff from across the Library System to generate ideas and implement a solution to address a challenge. Our first Ignite Challenge topic asked participants to consider the ways we may use our existing infrastructures to create or modify library services or spaces to promote social justice in our community. The Wayne State University Library System can be a positive force toward social justice and the Ignite Challenge was designed as a platform for inclusive dialogue, collaboration, and solution-based approaches to developing action items.

2020 CENSUS PROGRAMMING

The Library Vision Support Team supported Detroit Counts, a Wayne State University Library System sponsored public event series focused on the U.S. census. Through web-based public events, the series explored how the U.S. census offers a picture of the past and shapes the community’s future. The four-part series is documented at https://guides.lib.wayne.edu/DetroitCounts.  


CONVERSATIONS WITH COLLEAGUES

The Library Vision Support Team launched an initiative that pairs two colleagues in an effort to get to know one another through a series of brief questions. It's a great chance to meet and learn something new about people and, by sharing, everyone has the opportunity to learn with you. Conversations are archived here. If you're interested in having a conversation, please Email lvst@wayne.edu.
