Recognition of Graduating Student Library Assistants – Class of 2012

The Library has introduced a new program to recognize the contributions of graduating student library assistants. All student assistants from the Class of 2012 were invited to recommend one media item for the Library collection.

The items selected by the students this year have been added to the collection with a mention of the contributors in the catalogue, as well as in each of the chosen items themselves.
The books and DVDs will be exhibited in the display case near the reference desk from April 26 until May 31, 2012. Beginning next week, photos will also be rotated on the LCD panel in the lobby.

We would like to thank our graduating student library assistants for their hard work and certainly wish them all the best in their future endeavours! Congratulations!

Alcuin Society Awards

The Alcuin Society recently hosted its awards for excellence in Canadian book design. The library currently has a set of the trade books on loan. We have created two displays of the materials: one across from the Reference Desk on the second floor, and a second display on the fourth floor near Special Collections.

Celebrate World Tourism Day!

September 27 is World Tourism Day! In honour of this year’s theme, “Linking Cultures,” we’ve created a display in the glass case near the Reference Desk. The display highlights some of the items in our collection relating to cultural tourism.
