About the Coffeehouse

It’s time once again for the library’s summer coffeehouse series. If you’re unfamiliar with the coffeehouses, they provide an opportunity to come to the library, enjoy a snack, and learn about resources and services available to help you with work or leisure interests. Unless otherwise noted, coffeehouses are held on the first floor of the library. We start promptly at 10:00, finish at 10:45. All staff and faculty are welcome to attend.

Refreshments, as always, will be provided. So come to the library and get a jolt of information along with your java. Reminders will be sent closer to the dates of the coffeehouse sessions, but mark your calendars -- we hope to see you there!

 

Schedule for Summer 2017

July 12: Summer Reading

Books are our friends! Introduce yours and prepare to meet new ones at this ever-popular and fun Summer Reading Coffeehouse. See the list of titles discussed (and a few more) for details.

July 26: Streaming Media Sources

Can you step into the same river twice? You can with streaming media. The library provides access to a number of sources for streaming audio and video; come learn about resources from our subscribed databases like Academic Video Online and from Lux, the digital home for the scholarly and creative works of Lawrence University. See the list of resources from our session here.

August 9: Lawrence and World War I

The United States entered the first World War, which had started in Europe almost three years earlier, in April 1917. The war had profound and lasting effects at Lawrence. Enrollment plummeted as students enlisted; anti-German sentiment took hold; students were quarantined with Spanish influenza; and the college contracted with the government to host a unit of the Student Army Training Corps. Join Archivist Erin Dix for a discussion of this often-overlooked period of our history, featuring documents from the LU Archives.

August 23: Movement and Mindfulness in the Mudd

You’ve heard about mindfulness and the scientifically-proven benefits that practitioners enjoy, including increased productivity, improved concentration and mental clarity, heightened compassion and self-awareness, better sleep, and deeper relaxation. Join us to learn some simple mindfulness techniques and gentle yoga stretches you can do at your desk. The practice is simple. Showing up is the challenge!
