For FYS Instructors
Due to popular demand, we are expanding our offerings of drop-in workshops designed to answer all of your questions about the Lions' Guide to Research (the required information literacy tutorial integrated into the Core Curriculum).

RSVP by clicking your preferred date below, or visit the FYS LibGuide for more information.

Workshops will take place in the Faculty Innovation Center, on level 3. Drop-ins are welcome!
Featured Resource
Lions Guide to Research & the Library

This is the first semester that all incoming freshmen will be introduced to Information Literacy through an immersive online tutorial, called Lions Guide to Research & the Library.

Over a year in the making, we hope this experience will give new students the foundation they need to succeed in college level research. 

This fall, we are offering drop-in workshops for students in First Year Seminar (FYS) courses, as well as for instructors (above), to help you navigate this new tool.

Chocolate Chip or Snickerdoodle?
Last week, we posted a question on the whiteboard in the library lobby: "What is one thing we can do here at the library to make this your best semester ever?" 

Like we do with all feedback we receive from our users, we are paying close attention to all of the responses, whether lighthearted or serious. One comment in particular - a plea for milk & cookies - captured the attention of many passers-by who stopped to echo their support  in dry-erase-marker.

My thought... why not? 

We'll make it happen this semester - so keep an eye out for a milk & cookies study break. (Any student groups out there want to partner up?) 

But in the meantime, don't forget that most of our library programs and events have great food - come for a snack, and stay for the talk or performance. (And you can always get a delicious cookie at Jazzman's!)

Odd Couples

We're delighted to kick off the fourth season of our popular Faculty Pub Night series with Associate Professor of Sociology, Anna Muraco.


Anna Muraco Odd Couples  

Professor Muraco will be discussing her book Odd Couples: Friendships at the Intersection of Gender & Sexual Orientation (Duke University Press, 2012).


Odd Couples examines friendships between gay men and straight women, and also between lesbians and straight men, and shows how these "intersectional" friendships serve as a barometer for shifting social norms, particularly regarding gender and sexual orientation.

Relax in the Stacks

The semester has only just begun, but within a couple of weeks we're pretty sure you'll need a little stress relief. 

Starting on Wednesday, September 11, the William H. Hannon Library and FitWell (LMU Campus Recreation) are partnering up to offer a weekly series of 30-minute massages - in the library - for only $20 (LMU students) or $25 (faculty and staff).

Spaces Between

This fall, we're collaborating with the Laband Art Gallery and the Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis College of Art & Design to produce a series of exhibitions, performances, talks, rituals, workshops, and more that explore dimensions of the supernatural, called Spaces Between.


The series begins on Thursday, September 12, with a special opening event for our Archives & Special Collections exhibition Crossing Thresholds: An Entry Into Gothic Fiction. You are invited to join us for an evening celebrating one of the most famous Gothic characters of all time: Count Dracula.


Crossing Thresholds At the event, titled "I Bid You Welcome," Leslie S. Klinger, author and editor of The Annotated Dracula, among other works, will speak on Bram Stoker's novel and its many afterlives while LMU theatre arts students present scenes from five different stage adaptations from 1924 to 2000.


Learn more, and reserve your seat now.
