About the Coffeehouse
We’re into summer now, so it’s time for the library’s 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. Coffeehouses are held on the first floor of the library in the reference area. 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 2013
July 10: Summer Reads
We heard of so many good books at this session last summer that we decided to do it again. After all, what is summer in a library without reading? Come hear about the library staff’s favorite summer reads, and please share yours with us! See the list of books discussed here.
July 24: Lux! More Lux!
Lux, a digital repository of scholarly and creative work produced by Lawrence students, staff, and faculty, is now one year old. Join us as Erin Dix and Colette Lunday Brautigam tell us about recent additions to Lux, including Harrison Symposium papers, archives of The Lawrentian, and faculty publications. Birthday cake is a distinct possibility.
August 7: Lawrence in the Civil War
At the start of the Civil War, Lawrence University was 14 years old. Join university archivist Erin Dix to explore the ways in which Lawrence faculty and students participated on the front lines and coped with the effects of the war at home. This will be a reprise of a presentation given in January – if you missed it then, join us this time around!
August 21: It’s a Visual, Audio, Video World
Your website, publication, blog, or course material would benefit from the addition of some media, but where to begin? Come and discover sources for legally-acquired sound and images; Antoinette Powell and Colette Lunday Brautigam will lead us.
