Interior Design Posters on Display

Posted by Carter on December 1, 2010

There are so many ways that interior design has contributed to our society – from increasing personal safety, health and wellbeing, to lifestyle improvements, education, research, sustainable designs, and of course the benefits to our living, healing, learning, and working environments. But what have you heard about interior designers providing community service for the public such as assisting underprivileged, impoverished, or disabled people?


These posters were created by teams of students in Jill Eleazer’s Business Practice class during the Fall 2010 semester.  Stop by the library to see them on display now!

Special Collections Display: my new favorites

Posted by artlikeart on February 26, 2010

Spec Coll display

Heinz and JudyFrench Fries

Special Collections is a not-so-secret dark room where “special” materials are stored, like fine and rare books, and limited edition artist books. They aren’t in the general circulating collection because one or more of the following things are true: they’re unique, have some value, or are just really fragile.

Although these items can’t be checked out, you are certainly welcome to see them for yourself. That’s why we have them! Just ask at the Circulation Desk for the book you’d like to look at.

(And don’t forget to wear your gloves.)

Fall Colors Book Display

Posted by christinefra on November 6, 2009

Midterms are done, November has come and all our thoughts now turn to Thanksgiving Break. I don’t know about you, but I immediately associate Thanksgiving with fall colors (although I know that for those from the North, winter colors suit the holiday best). Here in the library, we’re all about those red, oranges, yellows and browns right now, and we chose to make this month’s book display fit the bill.

Based on the colors, we chose a wide range of books and movies covering quite a few subjects. So come by, browse around, and by all means feel free to check any of these materials out.

Just so you get an idea of some of the things you can find, here’s a list you can look at wherever you are.

But do come by, and look at the pretty colors in person!
