If you haven’t checked out the library’s research guides, I’d highly recommend doing so. They give handy tips on how to find books, articles, and other resources at the library on a variety of topics. We even have research guides tailored to particular classes.
There’s a new (as in hot off the presses) research guide on the ever popular Engl 102: The Beat Generation taught by Kurt Hemmer. Even if you’re not taking the class, take a look at the research guide to check out the books, articles, and media we have on authors such as Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, and others.
And if you’re interested, you can browse through the more than fifty other guides on topics ranging from chemistry to Martin Luther King, Jr. to psychology and more.
One new feature that you’ve probably noticed on the library’s website is the “New in the Library” link under “News and Events.”
Instead of coming to the reference desk to ask us what’s new in the library (although we wouldn’t mind if you did), you can quickly and easily find out for yourself by going to the library’s website. There are lists for fiction, non-fiction, and video—and you can get a quick glimpse at the book and DVD covers while you’re at it (perfect for the visually inclined).
Since the “News and Events” section is always changing, you can also go to the “New in the Library” link in the “Library Information” section. It’ll take you directly to the catalog, and you can narrow your search by selecting if you want to see all of the new books that have come in to the library within the past several weeks or months (or yesterday, if you’re so inclined).
Taking a break from your summer studies? Check out one of these new DVDs new on the shelf at the Library. You can find these DVDs and other popular DVDs on the first floor of the library. Come and check one out!
There’s nothing quite like a musical to bring you out of the winter doldrums. The Harper Library has recently acquired many movie musicals on DVD – most are classics, like The Music Man, and others are relatively new and unconventional, like South Park, Bigger, Longer & Uncut. But they’re all great movies and a wonderful escape!
Recently added titles include:
The Busby Berkeley Disc (featuring production numbers from many Busby Berkeley musicals)
South Park, Bigger, Longer & Uncut
A Star is Born (1954 version starring Judy Garland)
Meet Me in St. Louis
On the Town
The Band Wagon
The Music Man
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Love Me Tonight
If you’re interested in finding more movie musicals owned by Harper Library, search the Harper Library Catalog for the subject heading “Musical Films”. And if there’s a title you don’t see that you would like us to have, feel free to let any library staff member know!
