You're on the home stretch...
Finals are next week, which means that study space in the library is at a premium, and it's pretty intense around here. 

Through these final days of the semester, in addition to providing a beautiful space to study, we are also offering our students a few outlets to take a break, including guided meditation, massage, and a Maker Space, where they can play, build, and embrace their creativity. 

Oh, and we also have free earplugs at the Information Desk for anyone who asks!

And to the class of 2013, congratulations! We've been privileged to be a part of your college experience, and hope that you'll come back often!

Warmest regards,

Jamie Hazlitt
Outreach Librarian and Editor, Happenings @ Hannon

Sunday Jewish Book Group

Von der Ahe Family Suite

Please RSVP by emailing Rhonda Rosen, or calling her at 310.338.4584.

Calling All Faculty!

If you are an LMU faculty member teaching a First Year Seminar, a Rhetorical Arts course, or any other course in which you might want to apply for an Information Literacy flag, you'll want to make sure you touch base with a Reference Librarian this summer.

 

We can help you understand what Information Literacy is, and how to best incorporate it into your courses as a part of the new Core, whether through in-class instruction or online tutorials. 

 

We look forward to working with you to ensure your students' success in the new Core next year!
