Contest: LibDispenser Name Challenge


Published: 22Feb2012

This January, the McGill Library installed the Management Reserves Libdispenser, a new self-service lending machine. You can find it on the north side of the Bronfman Building, in the basement level, near Dave’s Store. It’s a machine that contains reserve materials for students taking courses in the Desautels Faculty of Management and it lets you browse, borrow and return library materials easily and conveniently. The one thing that isn’t convenient is its name which is why the McGill Library, in collaboration with The Bull and Bear, is challenging YOU to come up with a snappier name. Put your marketing hat on, enter, and your winning name could be immortalized on the skin created for the machine! The winner will also receive a $100 gift certificate to the McGill Bookstore along with some McGill Library swag.

How to enter:

1.       Submit your most creative name and a 1-3 sentence statement telling us why you chose this name to: info.library [at] (subject: LibDispenser Name Challenge).

2.       A winner will be selected from the entries submitted and contact by email.

3.       The winner will be announced in the Bull and Bear and on the Library’s website.

Contest starts now ends Friday, March 30, 2012.

Eligibility: McGill students with a valid McGill ID are eligible to enter and win.
