Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover...
What do a cancer survivor, a recovering addict, a veteran, a woman who heals with only her hands, a cross-dresser, and surfers have in common? 

These are just a few of the "Books" who will be sharing their stories at LMU's first Human Library

On Thursday November 8, we are  joining the ranks of organizations and institutions worldwide who have participated in the Human Library movement. As a part of the 2012 Bellarmine Forum, and in partnership with Ignatians Service Org, we have organized what is sure to be one of the most unique and memorable events of the year.

Between 12-4 on the 8th, members of our community are invited to take thirty minutes to sit down with a stranger and learn about the shared connections and differences that make us all human. 

I do hope you'll open your hearts and minds, and join us.

Jewish Book Group: Special Author Visit

All are invited to this special session of the Jewish Studies Sunday Book & Discussion Group, featuring a visit and discussion led by author Rabbi Zoë Klein.


Called a "zesty debut" by Kirkus Reviews, Klein's historically rich novel Drawing in the Dust is a lyrical and unexpected journey as poignant and thought provoking as the beloved bestsellers The Red Tent and People of the Book.


Sunday November 11

2 - 3:30 p.m.

Von der Ahe Family Suite (level 3)


Event is free & open to the public. Please RSVP to Rhonda Rosen: rrosen@lmu.edu, or 310.338.4584

Faculty Pub Night: Desert America
Our Fall 2012 Faculty Pub Night lineup concludes on Tuesday November 13, with a talk by Rubén Martinez, Professor of English and Fletcher Jones Chair of Creative Writing.

At 5:30 p.m., Martinez will be discussing his latest book, Desert America: Boom and Bust in the New Old West  (Metropolitan, 2012),
which L.A. Times reviewer Héctor Tobar describes as a "deeply moving and insightful account of [Martinez's] years searching for redemption and renewal far from L.A., in the sun-baked communities of ... New Mexico, Joshua Tree and Marfa, Texas." (Read full review here.)
This event is free and open to the public, and pub snacks and refreshments will be served. Copies of Desert America will be available for sale and signing. RSVP now!

Get Rewarded For Your Research


Students: Have you caught the research bug, and are working on a research project that demonstrates exceptional use of our library's diverse collections? Do you have a project that integrates advanced research skills with excellent writing and synthesis of ideas?


Faculty: Have any of your students created work that fits the above criteria? 


If so, consider applying for the William H. Hannon Library's 7th annual Undergraduate Library Research Award


The purpose of this award is to recognize and reward LMU undergraduate students whose research makes sophisticated and creative use of the services, resources, and collections of the William H. Hannon Library to produce a scholarly or creative work. A prize of $1,000 will be awarded to one undergraduate student, plus two honorable mentions of $450 each. A Faculty member must nominate each student and write a letter of support. Student nominees must write a brief essay describing their use of library resources in completing their project.


The application deadline is April 15, 2013. Submissions will be evaluated by a panel of faculty and librarians. Any paper or project completed for an LMU course between January 2012 and April 2013 will be eligible for this year's award.
