Fall semester workshops have just been announced and they feature a variety of skills to boost your papers, projects and everyday life and work. Back by popular demand is a workshop about creating an academic poster, which many seniors will need to make this year in 400-level classes. New to the schedule is a class about the brand new version of RefWorks, a tool which helps you organize your references and quickly create a bibliography. Also slated is a course on evaluating websites (couldn’t we all benefit from how to identify “fake news” and other types of bad information?) See the schedule below for more details.
Is there something you want to learn? Let us know and we’ll consider adding it to our next workshop series.
You might have noticed a new addition to the lobby: a bookcase underneath the digital sign. This is a display of new titles recently purchased by the Library. As new books arrive the selection will change so stop by to browse it any time you’re in the building.
Best part? Everything on this bookcase can be borrowed outside the library for three weeks.
Want to recommend a book to the library? Fill out this form and if we can buy it we’ll let you know (and then add it to the new book display).
The Sullivan Library is excited to welcome new students and also welcome back all our returning Chargers! As you are settling into (or back into) DC, here are a few reminders and tips about the library we hope you will take advantage of…
Over the summer we asked the entire Sullivan Library staff to pick some of their favorite books. Staff found a great range of selections, from classics by Emily Dickinson to non-fiction books related to environmental issues. These books are now located in our display case for checkout. See our Staff picks bibliography for a full listing of the selected titles.
Keep reading below to see what staff recommended and what they had to say about their picks:
The library will be closed for the 4th of July holiday. However, the library will be opened as normal the weekends before and after the 4th of July. Hope to see you around the library!
The Sullivan Library recognizes June as LGBT Month. June officially commemorates Gay Pride celebrations in honor of the Stonewall Riots that took place in New York City on June 28, 1969. The riots were in response to police raids at the Stonewall Inn, a popular gay hang out. The events are now considered the beginning of the gay rights movement in America.
June is also GLBT Book Month. Visit the American Library Association website for more information.
The Sullivan Library has on display selected books from our collection regarding gay rights and society. See the LGBT Bibliography of related titles in our collection. Below are some highlighted books.
The Sullivan Library will be opened over the summer with shorter hours. These hours are subject to change due to holidays and other DC related closings so remember to visit the Library’s homepage for the most current hours. Stay cool and see you around the library!
