Exhibit and Events September calendar image

Have you visited the SUL Events and exhibits web page lately? The Libraries have many events scheduled now through the coming months, including many workshops designed for students, faculty and staff. Plan to attend the events yourself, and feel free to spread the word. Events scheduled for today, September 30th, include Finding Articles When All Else Fails and xSearch Workshop.

Loring's Terrestrial Globe, 1833

A Chrome tab extension has been developed by DLSS' own Jack Reed, so now you can view the current date and time with a map from the David Rumsey Map Collection.

Random maps from the Rumsey Collection will be pulled in every time you open a new tab. A great way for anyone to explore the collection!

In “Programs that Pop,” Library Journal featured an Active Learning exercise created by Stanford’s Kathleen Tarr, a Program in Writing and Rhetoric instructor, and Felicia Smith, her class librarian. Similar to contestants in The Amazing Race reality television show, students compete to find books with unusual titles shelved by Library of Congress Classification in various library locations. The aim is to make the library experience engaging, fun, and memorable.

Read, The Amazing Library Titles Race, written by SUL's Head of Learning and Outreach Libarian Felicia Smith.
