Both workshops will be held in WHH 118, and drop-ins are welcome.

Compare the photograph above (St. Roberts & Xavier Hall, ca. 1930) with the image of the bluff at the top of the newsletter. Things have certainly changed!

You can find more fascinating imagery from LMU's history in our newest digital project, the Loyola Marymount University Historical Photograph Collection.

We're in the Top 20...
For the second year in a row, the William H. Hannon Library was included on Princeton Review's national list of the Top 20 College Libraries. 

While our building's beautiful design and perch on the bluff play no small part in this ranking, we hope that our outstanding programs, services, and collections equally enhance the LMU experience.

This newsletter serves as a small preview of what we've been working on all summer, and what we have in store for you in the upcoming months. We hope you enjoy it, and look forward to having everyone back on campus!
