In “Programs that Pop,” Library Journal featured an Active Learning exercise created by Stanford’s Kathleen Tarr, a Program in Writing and Rhetoric instructor, and Felicia Smith, her class librarian. Similar to contestants in The Amazing Race reality television show, students compete to find books with unusual titles shelved by Library of Congress Classification in various library locations. The aim is to make the library experience engaging, fun, and memorable.

Read, The Amazing Library Titles Race, written by SUL's Head of Learning and Outreach Libarian Felicia Smith.
