Faculty, Students, and Symbiosis

When dining out, celebrities often sit at a table near the front door – to see and be seen.  Visibility is a large part of success in our world.   What does this have to do with libraries?  Assume for a moment that interaction (of any kind) between faculty and students can help boost student performance.  I want to make the case that our students who spend many hours in Rodgers Library would benefit if teaching faculty would visit the library more often.  For our part, casual interaction with students as we go about doing our regular work pays dividends.  Teaching faculty mingling with students at the library would likely do the same.  Rodgers Library is a nice and neutral ground to connect with others.   Faculty welcome!
