Co-Sponsoring Athenaeum Events

Entrance to the Athenaeum

Athænæum Events are co-sponsored by the library and Carleton College entities such as academic departments, the Bookstore, the Learning and Teaching Center, the Office of College Relations, The Offices of the Deans of the College, and Office of the President.

The Athenæum is set up to make it easier for faculty to host visiting lecturers and hold public events on campus.

As Co-sponsor of events, the library will schedule the Athenaeum for events during regular library hours and will set up chairs as requested.  The library will also publicize events on the library calendar, and on campus calendars if requested.  The library requests explicit acknowledgement of library co-sponsorship in all publicity and at events.

The co-sponsoring departments will make the following arrangements: with Catering for receptions, with PEPS for audio-visual/computer equipment, and all arrangements with event speakers(e.g. payments and arrangement for honoraria, travel, and lodging).  Please note catering items and PEPS equipment must be scheduled by the event planner to be removed immediately following the completion of the event in order to accommodate the next scheduled event.
