On Monday, April 9th as part of National Library Week, the Harper College Library will be hosting “A Conversation with Melanie Benjamin,” best-selling author of the historical novels Alice I Have Been and Autobiography of Mrs. General Tom Thumb. She will answer questions in a forum moderated by Erin Brooks, Harper College Media Relations Manager, and will sign copies of her books, which will be available for sale as well. This event will take place on the lower level of the Library beginning at 7:00 PM. Admission is free to students and the public, and refreshments will be served.
Welcome Back to the Spring semester at Harper College!
Be sure to stop in at the Library to get an early start on your research! Access the Library website for a variety of research tools. If you are looking for books, search the Harper Library catalog. If we don’t have the particular book you are looking for, try the I-Share catalog. To order materials through I-Share you must create your own account. To find journal, magazine or newspaper articles use one of the databases such as Academic Search Complete.
Don’t forget your ID! You’ll need it to check materials out and to print.
New in the Library this semester are an additional 12 computers for your research use. All the computers are first come, first serve and all have access to the Internet and Microsoft Office applications. Laptops are also available for student checkout within the Library.
Need help getting started with your research? Can’t find a book or an article on your particular topic? Ask the Reference Librarians!

Attention new students (or returning students who do not have a Harper ID–you know who you are!): you can now get a Harper ID issued right here in the library. Stop by the circulation desk on the first floor to take your ID photo and have your ID issued within minutes. This is a new service, and will take place on Tuesday, May 25, Thursday, May 27, Tuesday, June 1, and Thursday, June 3 from 10am-4pm. This’ll save you the trek you normally would have had to take to get to the Box Office in J Building. There haven’t been any lines at all, so stop by the library to get your ID issued!

The library is “Going Green” with our National Library Week festivities, thinking of ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle. We’re selling all of our withdrawn books and audiovisual material in the book sale next week, holding a recycled book contest for people to be creative with old and seemingly unusable books, collecting paper to be recycled and binding them into notepads, etc. We’ve also put together a Green Living research guide to help you live a greener life.
In the Green Living research guide, you’ll find information about reference books, electronic books, and regular books on sustainable living, green architecture, and the environment, among other topics. You can also see the audiovisual materials we own on green living, as well as streaming media through databases like Films on Demand (that you can use to view streaming films on your computer at home). The Green Living research guide also lists a wide variety of websites that might be of interst, and can start you on your way to thinking about ways you can live more green.
