In order to reach out to diverse segments of the George Washington University Himmelfarb Health Sciences Library's patron base, librarians developed new initiatives and roles to expand their scope of responsibilities. New outreach initiatives included a film series with panel discussions, an instructional technology series by faculty for faculty, two exhibits, an annual art show, and a faculty authors reception. Each initiative broadened the skills of the participating librarians, extended the presence of the library into the community, and brought individuals from different corners of the institution together at the various events.
