The library will be hosting a small retirement party off-campus to honor Peg. If you would like to make a contribution towards Peg’s retirement gift, or send well wishes or cards, please send or give to Lori Wallace in the Library (LI108B) by February 18.
Did you know there’s an open classroom available for faculty to book on the second floor of the library? This classroom is equipped with a projector, screen, and speakers, and can seat 35 students. All you need is your laptop and connecting cables, which you can check out at the library’s main desk.
This room can be booked for individual class sessions (but not for an entire semester) through the EMS system.
So stop by and check out LI 209C in the Livingston Lord Library, for your class to use. This classroom is ideal for collaborative projects and for projects that use library resources.
