The Haunting of Hannon Library
It's October, so it's only (super)natural that we are turning our attention to things that are a little dark. 

In conjunction with the Archives & Special Collections exhibition Crossing Thresholds and a joint initiative with the Laband Art Gallery and OTIS College of Art & Design we are delighted to offer you a month's worth of opportunities to celebrate the otherworld and things dark, dreadful, and delightful through art, literature, animation, and performance. View the calendar to the left, or visit Spaces Between for more information. 

We will end the month with a Literary Trick or Treat on October 27, where LMU Theatre Arts students will lead brave souls through the stacks of the library, and perform scenes from classic horror novels with a few surprises along the way.

This is yet another way to celebrate the unexpected discoveries that a library can bring. We hope you'll join us.

Prison Art & Experience

In 1991, 16-year old Franky Carrillo was convicted for a murder he did not commit, and sentenced to a life in prison.


Twenty years later, he was exonerated. 

 

Today, Franky - a full-time LMU student - is a champion for equality and justice and an activist for change in the U.S. prison complex.

 

In an exhibition on display on level 3 of Hannon Library through December 13, Franky tells his story through art, artifacts, and ephemera from his time in prison and beyond.

Hannon Library Wins IMLS Grant

We are delighted to announce that the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has awarded Loyola Marymount University a 2013 Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program Grant.  

 

The award, in the amount of  $363,551 over three years, will support a project led by Kristine Brancolini, Dean of the Library, and Marie Kennedy, Electronic Resources Librarian, entitled "Institute for Research Design in Librarianship (IRDL)."  LMU and its partners, the San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science and the Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium, will implement a professional development program and support system for 63 novice academic and research librarians.  

 

Each year 21 librarians will receive instruction in research design and a full year of support to complete a research project at their home institutions. This includes a nine-day summer Institute for Research Design in Librarianship, supplemented with pre-institute learning activities and a personal learning network that provides ongoing mentoring.  

$1000 Prize for Student Research

 

Even though the deadline isn't until April, it's not too early to start thinking about applying for the 8th annual Undergraduate Library Research Award.

 

This year's award will include a $1000 individual prize, two $450 individual honorable mentions, and a $1000 prize for best group work.
