Participation for Professors & Their Pets Exhibit Needed

Posted on: | by Christine Anne George |

The librarians at Lockwood are currently planning an exhibit and we need your help. The exhibit, “Professors and Their Pets” will coincide with this semester’s Stress Relief Days, held at Lockwood and the Health Sciences Library at the end of the semester. What we would like from you is a photo of your pet, or of you and your pet together, along with a small paragraph about your pet.  We will be putting up an exhibit on December 1st in the lobby of Lockwood showcasing the professorial pets.

Here’s what we need:

  • One higher quality digital photo (300dpi or higher) of you and your pet, or of just your pet
  • A paragraph (maximum 100 words) telling us about your pet

Here’s an example:

  • This is Biff. He came from the Buffalo City Animal Shelter in 2003. Biff enjoys sleeping, staring at birds, chicken liver pâté, and running around the house at top speeds in the middle of the night for no apparent reason. Biff lives with librarian Molly Poremski.

For promotion of the exhibit, we may use your photo on the Library’s social media. If you’d like to opt out of that, please just let me know when you send in your photo.

If you’d like your furry (or not so furry, as the case may be) friend included in Lockwood’s upcoming exhibit, please email the photo and paragraph to Molly Poremski, poremski@buffalo.edu by November 10th.
