$1000 Prize for Library Research
We know that our undergraduates are doing some creative research out there using our library collections. As the April 15 deadline for this year's Undergraduate Library Research Award is approaching, I want to extend one final invitation to our students and faculty to consider submitting their best work for this award.

In addition to a $1000 individual grand prize and two $450 honorable mentions, this year, in response to feedback we received from you, we are delighted to offer a $1000 group prize. We saw some really exciting work being presented at this year's Undergraduate Research Symposium, and hope to see some of this work represented in the field of applicants for this award.

You've already done the work... now show us what you've got! 

We look forward to celebrating the winners at a public award reception on April 30.

Warmest regards,

Jamie Hazlitt
Outreach Librarian and Editor, Happenings @ Hannon

Faculty Pub Night: The Blue Sapphire of the Mind

At the final Pub Night of the semester, Dr. Douglas Christie, Professor of Theological Studies, will be discussing his book The Blue Sapphire of the Mind: Notes for a Contemplative Ecology

 

What might it mean to behold the world with such depth and feeling that it is no longer possible to imagine it as something separate from ourselves, or to live without regard for its well-being? To understand the work of seeing things as an utterly involving moral and spiritual act? 

 

Explore these questions, and more, with Professor Christie.

 

Tuesday April 16 / 5:30 p.m.

LMU Common Book 2013
In partnership with the Common Book Selection Committee, we are delighted to announce the selection for the 2013 LMU Common Book: Tattoos on the Heart by Father Greg Boyle.

In this collection of reflective essays, Boyle, a Jesuit priest, recounts his two decades of working with former gang members in the Boyle Heights neighborhood within Los Angeles. 

 

We invite the entire LMU community-students, faculty and staff alike - to join our incoming students in reading Tattoos on the Heart, and to participate in the Fall 2013 programs and activities surrounding the Common Book, including a special visit by Fr. Boyle on September 17. 

 

If you have any programming ideas for The Book Festival or would like more information about the Common Book, please contact committee co-chairs, Jamie Hazlitt, Outreach Librarian, or La'Tonya Rease Miles, Director, Academic Resource Center.
