14 down, 2 weeks to go...
Another semester has nearly come to an end, and we're definitely noticing a change in the air in the library. As you're preparing for finals, we have a few things to offer that we hope will contribute to your success:
  • Extended hours. From December 3 - 13, we're open 24 hours a day, even during the weekend.
  • Maker Breaks. During finals week, we'll be setting up a space in the lobby where you can flex your creative muscles while taking a study break.
  • Extra computers. In addition to the Information Commons, we have laptops available for check-out at Media & Reserves, and classroom 118 (with 36 iMacs) is also open for quiet study during finals.
  • Snacks. Keep an eye out for these during finals week. 
  • Quiet study space with a view. The Von der Ahe Suite (level 3) will be available to LMU students during finals' week. 
  • Help when you need it. Our librarians are incredible resources, and we're all here to help you be the best student you can be.
Good luck, and on behalf of all of us here at the library, we wish you a relaxing and fulfilling holiday with your loved ones! 

See you in 2013,

Jamie Hazlitt

Save the Date: Manifold Greatness
King James Bible title page
From January 24 through February 22, 2013, the William H. Hannon Library will host to a new exhibition: Manifold Greatness: The Creation and Afterlife of the King James Bible. This traveling exhibition, which explores the legacy that the first English translation of the Bible has had throughout history, including its social, cultural, literary, and religious influence over the past four centuries, was organized by the Folger Shakespeare Library and and the American Library Association Public Programs Office, and made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities .
 
The traveling exhibition, which will be on display in the library's level 3 atrium, will be accompanied by an Archives & Special Collections exhibition entitled Singular Wisdom: The King James Version and Early Printed Bibles, featuring works including a second edition (1613) of the King James Bible on loan from the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library at UCLA, a 1531 edition of the Greek New Testament edited by Erasmus, and a 1670 printing of Martin Luther's Bible.

Save the date for the evening of January 24, 2013, when we host the Manifold Greatness opening lecture and reception, featuring a keynote talk by New Testament scholar and New York Times bestselling author Bart Ehrman, Distinguished Professor from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This opening event will be followed by a month of thought-provoking programming, all free and open to the public, exploring the themes in the exhibition. A full program calendar will be published in our January newsletter, and on our library events website

New Emerging Technologies Librarian

Tara Radniecki

Meet Tara Radniecki, the newest professional librarian to join our ranks. 

 

As Emerging Technologies Librarian, Tara does many things a traditional reference librarian does, such as teach library instruction sessions, work at the information desk, and choose books for the library's collection. But her primary job is to identify emerging technologies and determine how they are affecting our users' academic, professional, and social lives. She then considers how the library could apply these technologies to improve or provide new services and resources to our community.
