Welcome To The New Academic Year!

Welcome back Lions and a special welcome to the class of 2019!


Throughout June, Programming Librarian Ray Andrade and Library Ambassador Lauren Brown have been presenting about library services during Student Orientation and Parent Orientation. 

We encourage you to come say hello to us during Family Festival on August 29th. This will be a great opportunity for you to meet some of our friendly staff!

We hope that everyone is having a marvelous summer, and we look forward to seeing new and returning Lions
 next month!

Exhibit: Vintage Adding Machines

Long before people had a smart phone in their pocket, the financial livelihood of the American workplace was managed using these (at the time) state of the art mechanical accounting machines. 

Through August 13, come to level 3 of the library to take a look (and touch) some of these marvelous machines in an exhibit curated by Dr. John Wholihan, Professor Emeritus in the College of Business Administration.

Library Jobs for LMU Students

We're one of the largest student employers on campus. We hire a wonderful community of student workers in all facets of our jobs.


Our open work study positions for the upcoming semester will be posted soon on LionJobs - all you have to do is log in, and search for "library." Unfortunately, we cannot accept any in-person applications so students must apply directly through LionJobs. (Please note that most positions require a Federal Work Study award.) 


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


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

Meet Our New Reference & Instruction Librarian for Theology!
We are delighted to welcome Desirae Zingarelli-Sweet, our new Reference & Instruction Librarian for Theology, to the William H. Hannon Library staff!

We asked Desirae to tell us a little bit about herself:

Q: What's the last good book you read?


The Custom of the Country by Edith Wharton. Even though it was written in 1913, I think its explorations of the struggle for upward socioeconomic movement, what constitutes "class," and the making and unmaking of our individual and familial moral sensibilities are highly resonant today, too. The bitingly funny dialogue makes it an enjoyable and quick read.


Q:  Tell us one surprising thing about you.


I'm a vegetarian and not at all a hunter myself, but my favorite arcade game is the preeminently kitschy Big Buck Hunter (exactly what it sounds like). I'm always on the lookout for places that have it.
