Featured Resource: Your LMU Librarians


This time of year, with final projects looming, you may need the assistance of a reference librarian more than ever. 

You can always stop by the Information Desk, but did you know that you can also make a private research consultation?

Discover all of the ways that an LMU librarian can make your academic life easier. We're here for you!

The Human Library 

Thursday November 7

11 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Jazzman's Patio

 

We're delighted to bring the Human Library back to LMU as a part of the 2013 Bellarmine Forum.

 

The Human Library works just like a regular library. A Reader borrows a Book for a limited period of time. After borrowing the Book, the Reader returns it to the Library, and if they like, they may check out another Book. 

 

But there is one significant difference. The Books in the Human Library are human beings, and each Book and Reader has the opportunity to engage in unique, individual dialogue about the human experience.

Food for Fines

Do you have a book or ten that you forgot to turn in on time this semester? Now is your chance to reduce your fines, and help feed a hungry family this holiday season at the same time.

 

 

From November 16 through December 13, the William H. Hannon Library will host Food for Fines.

 

For every food item that you bring in to the Circulation Desk on level 1, (rice, beans, peanut butter, canned meats, canned fruits, and canned vegetables are most needed), you can reduce your library fines* by $2. (That's $2 for each item donated!)

 

All donations will go to directly to the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank, a non-profit organization at the heart of a charitable food distribution network that includes over 900 charitable agency sites throughout Los Angeles County.

 

*Please note that replacement charges for lost materials are not included in Food for Fines.

Read a Good Book Lately?

It seems like we just barely wrapped up the LMU Common Book for this year. But it's time to suggest

 

We're seeking nominations for books that are readable, interdisciplinary, and thought-provoking.


Submit your suggestions here by November 8, and you'll be entered into a drawing to win one of four Amazon.com gift cards (1 - $100, 1 - $50, and 2 - $25).

 

We can't wait to see what you come up with! 

Feel Good Finals Coming Soon...

 

Starting December 3, we're teaming up with FitWell at LMU Campus Rec to offer even more ways to unwind during finals.

 

Keep an eye out for...

* Milk and cookies

* More massage

* Guided meditation

* Therapy dogs

 

 

New KCET Collection Guides

The Department of Archives and Special Collections is pleased to announce the posting of four new finding aids to the Online Archive of California

  

The finding aids are detailed guides to our four KCET-TV collections. Two are comprised of materials from "Life and Times," a news and public affairs program that reported on stories from Los Angeles and Southern California between 1992 and 2007. The other two collections document the statewide news program "California Connected," which KCET co-produced with KQED, KVIE and KPBS from 2002 to 2007.  

 

 

As a reminder, the recordings on videotape in these collections are not currently available to researchers due to the obsolescence of formats and playback equipment. Obsolete technology is a major issue for archives with audiovisual materials, and we look forward to the day when we can digitize the video recordings, thereby making them more accessible for research use.
