Microbookmarking:  drop in anytime, 6th floor Sharp
Select a book and make window cut-outs on paper that would serve as a bookmark. Microbookmarking is a term that Megan Nugroho made for this action that allows for a unique revealing of words from the pages of a book. “Is this highlighting a certain part or is it censoring the rest?“ 

Pick a Card: Bibliodérive Deck: drop in anytime, 6th floor Sharp
Choose a card from the Bibliodérive Deck and use the prompt to engage with the library’s collections, exploring non-traditional research and the physicality of the library itself. Check out what you can do here.  

This interactive, participatory, all day event is open to all SAIC students, faculty and staff. Whether individually or in an organized group, participants are invited to engage with the library’s collections, architecture and community. John M. Flaxman Library is the bibliodérive’s central location.  Participants are encouraged to expand throughout the campus. Please visit our official Bibliodérive website here!
