Uni­ver­sity of the Philip­pines Dil­i­man Email ad­dress: ny­[email protected] Ab­stract

Every li­brary is the cen­ter of its com­mu­nity—a cen­ter where ideas, knowl­edge, and tal­ents are shared. In its role as the heart of UP, the Uni­ver­sity Li­brary Dil­i­man must be seen by the UP com­mu­nity as a sym­bol of aca­demic free­dom and, most im­por­tantly, a place where they can ex­press them­selves freely. The li­brary hold­ing an event as an av­enue for a night of free­dom of ex­pres­sion for its com­mu­nity is one ini­tia­tive to­wards that end. This pre­sen­ta­tion dis­cusses how to or­ga­nize a valu­able plat­form for com­mu­nity en­gage­ment ini­ti­ated by the In­for­ma­tion Ser­vices and In­struc­tion Sec­tion (ISAIS) of the UP Dil­i­man Uni­ver­sity Li­brary in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the UP School of Li­brary and In­for­ma­tion Stud­ies LIS 181 (Field As­sign­ment) Class of 2nd Se­mes­ter, A.Y. 2017-2018. The pre­sen­ta­tion takes you be­hind the scenes to ex­plore the whole ex­pe­ri­ence from con­cep­tu­al­iza­tion to the ac­tual event. Key­words: li­brary mar­ket­ing; li­brary pro­mo­tions; aca­demic free­dom; free­dom of ex­pres­sion
