Diversity & Banned Books

September 23, 2016

Every year, libraries across the country celebrate Banned Books Week, and we wanted to join! This year’s theme is DIVERSITY! Authors of color receive the majority of book challenges every year, which further silences their voices in other mainstream media. We hope to bring their words and voices to the forefront. The library has a small selection of books on display that have been challenged for various reasons: LGBTQIA issues, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, and ethnic, cultural and religious minorities.

While you are checking out our display, you can also play our Guess the Banned Book in the Jar game! A frequently challenged and banned book has been put through the shredder…Oh no! Can you guess which one it is? Enter your answer for a chance to win a gift card from Powell’s Books. One winner will be picked from all of the correct answers on Monday, October 3, 2016.

Study space upgrades!

September 15, 2016

untitled-3Last spring we asked for your feedback and suggestions about how to make the quiet space in the library more comfortable and pleasant. You spoke, and we listened! We replaced the big wooden table that wasn’t being regularly used with 6 lounge chairs and 3 tables.

We also brought in rolling whiteboards to help with your studying. Dry erase markers and erasers are available at the front desk for in-library use, or you can checkout whiteboard supplies for a full day.

Finally, remember those paper cranes you folded in the spring? The library staff created a beautiful hanging mobile with those cranes, and it is now hanging above the new seating area. Come take a look at the amazing art piece you helped create and maybe try out the new chairs! This might be your new favorite spot on campus.

Look no further because the Library Guides are here. Over the past few months, the library staff has been creating guides to help you in your studies. The subjects of these guides range from test anxiety and essay tips to copyright and fair use. The four library guides that we are debuting today are AMA Citation, Copyright for Students, Test Taking Tips and Study Skills. Keep an eye out for more guides that are on the way!

Make a crane!

May 27, 2016

For springtime fun, we are making and collecting origami cranes in the library. We have origami paper and directions available at the front desk. Come on over and make a crane or two as a fun break from studying. When you finish your crane, it can join the NUNM Library crane flock. We’re collecting the cranes in a ‘flock student with origami cranepile of multicolored origami cranesbox’. When we have enough cranes gathered, library staff will turn the flock into a beautiful piece of art to hang in the front room of the library. Come help the flock grow!
