"Bound journals"

Let's start the new semester off with something a little old, "bound journals." You won't have to use these the way people once did, but it may come up, you never know. Even in 2016 not everything is available online!

If you run across something that is in the bound journals, it simply means those "books" on the ground floor. They aren't regular books, they're journals or magazines, and at the end of every year we send them out and they get "bound," or made into books. Like the old Scientific Americans from the WWI era in this photo. The bound journals are shelved A-Z by title. You can read them in the library, or photocopy or scan them with one of our scanners. (If you have a smart phone you could take pictures of the pages, or use an app like Office Lens to scan them."

If you have any questions with any of this please ask one of us!

A library ghost cam?

This is interesting about the public library in Indiana with a "ghost cam," especially with an intern coming to the Rose Archives this spring to update the famous Hartwell ghost history. Perhaps we need a ghost cam in Hartwell Hall? Drake Library has a lot of books on the spiritualist movement, paranormal phenomenon and so forth.

Reading closets that is, wouldn't some spaces like this be lovely here?

We're back!

Back from the 2 week holiday shut down that is :-) The library never went away entirely though, as you can access a number of significant information resources 24/7, from any PC anywhere. While we aren't open quite as many hours as during the main semesters, we are open, and you can check the hours here.

Before you go...

Before you go, think about checking out some books to read over break. Maybe something different; if you're a history major read something about science, or if you're science major read about the Civil War... We have LOTS of books to choose from on the top floor!

End of semester help

The photo at left is just for fun, a shot of the Christmas Vespers service held at the college years ago. This is from the 1953 event.
