Over eighty-percent of full-time library staff helped my initiative to check the actual cost of 899 citations listed on 21 scholarly articles by our faculty member, add the price tag on each of 899 articles, and installed them in a large learning space. Using techniques of visual arts allows us to include multiple meanings.
