Get Your Harper ID at the Library This Summer   Leave a comment

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!

Green Living Research Guide   Leave a comment

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 We’re selling all of our withdrawn books and audiovisual material in the book sale next week, holding a recycled book contest for people to be creative with old and seemingly unusable books,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.

New Sci Fi Research Guide   Leave a comment

For all you science fiction lovers out there, the library has just released a new research guide for your browsing pleasure. While the Sci Fi Research Guide was originally written for students taking Pearl Ratunil’s English 102 and Literature 115 courses, anyone– even the general public– can take a look at any of the research guides and the various resources that are available to them at Harper. There’s info on finding books, media, author biographies, websites, and even MLA citation help if you so need it.
