Abstract

This paper discusses how the Leonard Lief Library at Lehman College is documenting its renovation via the social media platform Instagram. It discusses the origin of project, why we chose Instagram and how we chose to highlight that social media platform on our Library’s web page.

We also discuss the challenges we have encountered, and how we overcame those challenges to reach student audiences in new and engaging ways.
