The Library is one of many organizations and departments across campus participating in DePaul’s second annual Gnome Hunt. You can find gnomes in the Loop Library and the John T. Richardson Library this week. Return them to the Office of Student Involvement to claim a prize. In the meantime, we thought you might want to get to gnome them a little better.
Meet Johnny T.
In addition to being a gnome, Johnny T. is a Blue Demon superfan and a scholar. We hear he’s looking for a book on how to perfect his jump shot, so he’ll likely stop in to the John T. Richardson Library to find the perfect book soon!
And because he has a research paper coming up (also about basketball) you may just see him at the Research Help Desk or on the Library’s “Ask a Librarian” instant messaging service asking for help finding articles about the biomechanics of a jumpshot in his favorite database, Academic Search Complete.
Dewey loves hotdogs, fashion and long walks on the beach. He’s also passionate about reading; you’ll often find him in the Loop Library book stacks exploring our collection. In fact, he’s so studious that long hours in the library frequently drain his laptop and phone batteries. If you enter the Library at the right time, you might spy him borrowing laptop and phone chargers at the front desk.
The Library: helping gnomes, superfans, and scholars deliver in the clutch!
