Construction Causes Noise on Second Floor

Pardon the noise! To prepare the Mezzanine Room for staircase installation, Love Library South will be going through some construction. On September 26 and September 27, there will be construction going on from 7:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. in the Mezzanine Room 201. This could involve times of construction noise, dust, and welding odors.

We apologize for the distraction this could cause any of you.

Students to Decide on Mezzanine Room Furniture

Starting this Friday at 10 am, we will be setting up a display in the second floor lobby of Love Library.  This display will have many different types of furniture possibilities for the Mezzanine Room, a new study area under construction. 

You have about a week to come and test out the different types of furniture and give your feedback.  There will be a poll here: where you give us your feedback.  Whiteboards will also be set up around this display so that anyone may write down their opinions on which furniture they like best, and would like to see in the library. 

This is your chance to make the library look how you want it to look, so don’t miss out!

Liz Lorang, new Digital Humanities Projects Librarian

On July 1, Liz Lorang, Research Assistant Professor, started in the new position of Digital Humanities Projects Librarian.  The position entails working with other librarians to identify students working on digital research projects, helping students develop their digital scholarship, teaching in the Digital Humanities Graduate Certificate program, and continuing as Senior Associate Editor on the Walt Whitman Archive.

Lorang says the responsibilities involve consulting and connecting with faculty and students. She is excited to work directly with graduate and undergraduate students to help them showcase the great work they are producing.  In the spring she expects to teach the Internship course for the graduate certificate program.  Lorang has a twitter feed and you can follow her: @bettylorang

Love Library Powers Up

Many students, during the day, find themselves with phones or laptops that have died during class, while studying or even while walking to class.  Love Library came up with a solution for what to do when this happens.  Instead of walking all of the way back to the dorms, greek houses or off campus houses, any student can walk over to the Love Library and use one of their Kwikboosts. 

Kwikboosts are charging stations set up around the library.  There are four Kwikboosts located in the library, one in the talk zone, two in the Link area and one on the first level of Love North.  Installing a Kwikboost in C.Y. Thompson library is under discussion as of now.

Each Kwikboost comes with two iPhone Lightning cables (charges the newest iPhones and iPads), iPhone 30-pin cable (charges older model iPhones and iPads), and the Micro USB cord (charges most other devices including newer Blackberry’s and Android devices like Samsung, Motorola, Nokia, etc).

If an iPhone or laptop runs out of battery life, just stop by one of the four conveniently located Kwikboosts in the Love Library.
