Considering Ferguson

With the announcement of the verdict in Ferguson, the last few weeks have been filled with explosive media coverage of a country divided over issues of race, power, and social justice.

Here at LMU, we are fortunate to be in a community that can discuss all sides of these societal challenges with respect and with a focus on what we can do to be the change needed to make a difference.

Along with our friends at the Academic Resource Center, we thought it worthwhile to highlight a small handful of resources from our collections that might help to facilitate this dialogue, as we continue on our journey of understanding and celebrating our shared humanity during this holiday season.

The new Jim Crow / Michelle Alexander

Freedom summer : the savage season that made Mississippi burn and made America a democracy / Bruce Watson

Rise of the warrior cop : the militarization of America's police forces / Radley Balko

The history of White people / Nell Irvin Painter


Freedom Riders (DVD) / American Experience Films

The mindless menace of violence : Robert F. Kennedy's vision and the fierce urgency of now / Zachary J. Martin

Oxford African American Studies Center (e-resource - need LMU log-in to access)

These may only be starting points... we have much, much more in our collections. This thoughtful crowdsourced syllabus from The Atlantic also provides a wealth of resources and viewpoints (all free and online) for your consideration and discussion. 

The Return of Feel Good Finals

In partnership with FitWell, we are delighted to bring you 11 days of activities to nurture the whole person during this stressful time leading up to the end of another semester.

Undergraduate Library Research Award
Do you or your group have a research project worth $1000?

The deadline for the 2015 Undergraduate Library Research Award isn't until April, but now is a great time to consider applying with work you're completing right now. 
Thank You!

On Wednesday November 12, the Hannon Library participated in a university-wide challenge to solicit 1,112 donors in a single day.  


We blew past our collective goal, with 1,953 donors, resulting in an additional $100,000 gift  from the Fletcher Jones foundation for student scholarships.


58 of you allocated your donations to the library as part of this challenge, and we want to sincerely thank every single one of you who stepped up to support the work we do here.



MIssed the challenge on 11/12? Never fear. Your donation makes a difference every day of the year!
