The Black Hills State University E. Y. Berry Library will host Snapshot Day, Tuesday, Nov. 2.
During Snapshot Day the library will be collecting comments from patrons and taking pictures. The event is designed to see how the library is used, and show the value of the library in the community.
Library Snapshot Day is an initiative promoted by the American Library Association for all types of libraries. Snapshot Day was started to demonstrate the impact that each library has, on a local and statewide level.
E. Y. Berry Library-Learning Center is a major resource center BHSU and the community. The library collection includes over 235,000 book volumes and 70,000 government documents. Micromaterials, including microfiche and microfilm, combine to add over 635,000 volumes of additional resource materials. The building also houses the Special Collections and Archives, a unique collection of nearly 2,225 volumes of state, county, and local histories from throughout the United States during mid 19th century through World War II. The library collection can be searched and accessed using South Dakota Library Network (SDLN) system that BHSU pioneered for the state of South Dakota.
