From May 8th-May 15th, it’s Library Amnesty Week! (Overdue fines for materials that have not already been billed will be forgiven. See the Circulation Desk for more details & don’t forget to return your materials before the semester ends!)
We invite you to join us at the Human Library taking place in the Burritt Library (2nd floor) on April 3rd & 4th.
The Human Library is an event that encourages people from different backgrounds to talk with and learn from each other. The attendees, or “readers,” will join in a small group or one-on-one conversation with human “books” who have volunteered to share their unique stories. For more about being a human book reader, see: http://libguides.ccsu.edu/c.php?g=914868&p=6591484
You can meet with human books for up to 20 – 30 mins. at a time per session in order to have a conversation and ask questions about the “book’s” topic. There is no actual reading or presenting of real print books.
The library is a safe place to have some positive conversations to challenge stereotypes and prejudices, learn about a career, or just to get to know another individual. For more information, goto:http://libguides.ccsu.edu/ccsuhumanlibrary or contact Susan Slaga-Metivier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Human Library Schedule (There will be approximately 10-12 Human books per time slot.)
Did you know that the Burritt Library subscribes to numerous collections of online resources that are available to our students, faculty and staff from both on and off campus? As a member of the CCSU community you have access to a wide range of databases, e-journals, eBooks and other tools to support you in your studies, research and teaching! With so many resources available, it can be difficult to keep track of them all. In our Spotlight series, we will highlight one of these resources each month to help connect our students and faculty with some of the unique resources available via the Elihu Burritt Library, and to offer some tips and tricks for using them. In our first installment of the Spring 2019 series, allow us to introduce you to Oxford History of Western Music. To learn more, go to: https://libguides.ccsu.edu/spotlight/oxfordhowm
