The Fall 2017 Elihu Burritt Library Newsletter is live: Catch up with your library!

Fall 2017 Elihu Burritt Library Newsletter

In this issue, you’ll learn about Burritt Library’s EXCITE-ing new project, experience the “Best of Italy,” and relive the opening reception for our World War I exhibit, “Cross-Culture Courage: Connecticut’s Response to WWI.”

If you’re a student, you might want to submit a research paper or project to be considered for the 2018 Elihu Burritt Research Awards! Meanwhile, faculty might be interested to learn more about our Library Liaison Program.

We offer our congratulations to Stephen Arel, who won the Burritt Family Scholarship, and our boundless gratitude to our supportive, generous donors!

Did you know? This semester, Library Director Dr. Carl Antonucci and librarian Sharon Clapp presented on their new book, The LITA Leadership Guide: The Librarian as Entrepreneur, Leader, and Technologist. On a sillier note, at this year’s Trick-or-Treat e-resources event, we turned a Munchkin into a computer mouse – see how we did it!
