The semester is in full swing and the library is buzzing. On any given day, there are students in the Writing Center, attending an English Department tea, using the group study rooms, or studying in our quiet zone. Most days the Seminar room and the Library computer classroom are put to use by classes, or for library instruction sessions taught by our Instruction Librarian, Sheena Campbell. After the long hot summer, it’s wonderful to see so much activity!
Note that the Library will be closed from 11:45 – 1:45 on Wednesday Sept 20th in support of Convocation.
The first faculty salon for this academic year is on October 3rd from 6-7pm in the Library’s Glass Lounge. Professor Anne Walker will be holding a poetry workshop entitled “Poetry That Writes the Body”.
Check out the new book exhibit for National Hispanic Heritage Month next to the Research Help desk. This is just the tip of the iceberg; we have more books, dvds, scholarly and popular articles and even historical newspapers on aspects of Hispanic history and culture; many are available to you 24/7 through the databases the Library subscribes to.
Finally, if you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the new responsibilities of being a college student away from home (possibly for the first time), the library has you covered. Here are a couple of our newest books on time management, studying and successfully adapting to college life.
