Event Reminder: Art Talk, “La Otra Cara: Human Rights in Colombia”
7 p.m. Tuesday, September 27, the Library welcomes noted Colombian journalist and photographer Pablo Serrano, the Library’s 5th Artist-in-Residence, in a panel discussion, “La Otra Cara: Human Rights in Colombia.” This event is co-sponsored with the Center for Social Justice and with Campus Ministry as part of SOA (School of the Americas) Awareness Week.
Joining Mr. Serrano’s discussion will be Nico Udu-gama, U.S. Field Organizer for SOA Watch, an independent organization that seeks to close the U.S. Army School of the Americas.
Mr. Serrano’s numinous, haunting photographs documenting civil resistance in the Colombian social conflict have been touring universities in California this year. Even if you can’t make this event, please take time this semester to walk through his installation, featured on the main floor of the Library.
This event is open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
New Librarian Joins “Team Library”
Yes, the library now has TWO Nicoles (what are the odds, on a 5-person team)!
Nicole Branch is our new Librarian for Research and Digitization, joining Daniel Ransom in providing information-literacy instruction, research help, and other services. Nicole will also be instrumental in launching our electronic thesis program. Nicole has a master’s degree in library science from San Jose State University.
New Seminar Room
We have created a small multipurpose room (Room 302, Main Level, near the Library Classroom) we call the Seminar Room, perfect for small meetings, lectures, demos, and classes. When it’s not in use for these purposes, it’s also another study room. Reserve it through our website.
P.s. Notice our new design and location? Big thanks to Deirdre Spencer, campus webmaster, for her work making this happen!
