How are you promoting National Library Week at your library?

Tumblarians, we want to hear all about the National Library Week events at your library! And, by entering our National Library Week 2013 Photo Contest, sharing what you are getting up to *might* just win you a laptop for your library.

All you need to do is send in a photo from your NLW 2013 event or promotion along with a 100-500 word description and preferred contact information, and you’ll be entered for a chance to win your library a laptop. All submissions should be emailed to by 21 April 2013.

Please note the competition is open only to those within the United States and entrants must be affiliated with a library (employee, volunteer, etc.). By entering the competition, you agree to these Terms and Conditions. (Any law librarians will understand the struggle we had to come up with this.)

The winning photo and notable entrants will be shared on Oxford Academic’s Tumblr, but of course we hope to see many more gratuitous photos of libraries this week and beyond.

And, what is OUP doing to Celebrate National Library Week? You may well ask. We’re freeing up both the Oxford English Dictionary and Oxford Reference sites to everyone in North and South America for the whole week. Simply visit one of these products homepages and login in with the username: libraryweek and the password: libraryweek and you will have full free access to both sites. Visit the OUPblog for details.
