#LMU18 and the Library

Over the first three weeks of June, my colleagues and I at the library were delighted to be a part of the two-day campus-wide orientation experience for our incoming LMU freshmen and their families. 

 

I got the chance to meet many new members of the LMU family in person during the Parent Orientations, and Programming Librarian Ray Andrade introduced himself and all that the library has to offer to the students. 

 

When it's time to return to LMU in August, we hope that these newest members of our community won't hesitate to make themselves at home here at the library. Come say hello to us during Family Festival on August 23, and we'll be kicking off the school year with a Happy Birthday (to us!) party during convo hour on August 28. This will be a great chance to meet our friendly staff and enjoy a treat on us. 

 

We hope that everyone out there is having a marvelous summer, and look forward to seeing all of you - new Lions and returning alike - next month!


Warmest regards,

Jamie Hazlitt, Outreach & Communications Librarian

Summer Exhibit: From Their Perspective II

 

Are you in need of a summer-school study break or an excuse to get up from your desk and walk across campus? 

 

The second-annual installation of From Their Perspective is jointly curated by 18 of our student assistants from departments across the library. Each student was invited to select postcards from our special collections that illuminates various aspects of their own identity. 

 

The corresponding captions reveal stories of family heritage, favorite vacation memories, and an enthusiastic engagement with LMU's Study Abroad program. Together, these stories represent a broad spectrum of cultural diversity and a strong, vibrant spirit. 

 

From Their Perspective celebrates our LMU students as much as our wonderful postcard collections. 

 

The exhibit is on display through July 31, Monday through Friday, 8am - 5pm, in the Archives & Special Collections Gallery on level 3. 

Library Jobs for LMU Students

We're one of the largest student employers on campus, and hire a wonderful community of student workers upon whom we rely in all facets of our jobs.

 

Our open work study positions for the upcoming semester are now posted on LionJobs - all you have to do is log in, and search for "library." (Note that most positions require a Federal Work Study award.) Please apply directly through LionJobs - we regret that we cannot accept any in-person applications. 

 

Although we fill the bulk of our positions prior to the start of the semester, we also do hire as needed throughout the year. 

 

For more information about student employment at LMU, including access to LionJobs, please contact Career Development Services directly. 

Picture Yourself Reading The Book

Are you one of the hundreds of LMU community members who are reading The Circle, by Dave Eggers, as a part of the 2014 LMU Common Book program? 

 

If so, take a photo of yourself (or your book club) reading The Circle, post it to Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, or Facebook with the #lmucommonbook hashtag, and you'll be entered to win Common Book totebags, 826LA swag, and more. Winners will be selected at random in July, August, and September.

 

And don't forget that author Dave Eggers is coming to LMU on September 9. 

 

To stay up to date on the author visit, book clubs, and other news about the Common Book, be sure to follow us on Facebook, look for the #lmucommonbook hashtag on Twitter, and of course, bookmark the Common Book website

What Are You Reading This Summer?

Although it's a myth that librarians get to read "all the time," it's true that most of us enjoy a good book whenever possible. Here are a few books that library staff are hoping to enjoy this summer. 

 

(Links will take you to the LMU or LINK+ library record. For those of you who aren't able to get these from our library, we hope you'll check out your local public library!)
