Hi everyone! We hope you’re having a great summer, and hopefully you’re enjoying the summer heat at the beach or pool. Speaking of which, did you know there used to be a pool in the Unistructure? It was located where the fountain in Admissions is now! Check out this picture of it, and click the link in the caption to visit the Digital Commons for more info:
Happy Pride Month! We have a display up on the first floor of the library with Pride themed reading materials, so come check it out if you’re on campus (and, of course, visit the Bryant Pride Center). If you’re not on campus, you can check out the archival materials collected in the Gale Archives of Sexuality and Gender database, or these organizations’ websites with resources you can view online:
- Youth Pride Inc.– Youth Pride Inc. provides a supportive environment for youth who identify as LGBTQ* or those who are questioning their identity. They host a variety of events, which you can view on their calendar!
- SAGE Rhode Island– SAGE focuses on issues around aging and healthcare in the LGBTQ* community.
- TGI Justice– This organization provides legal services for transgender and gender variant /non-conforming people in California. Read more about how the organization started and their mission here!
We have a new display up at the library showcasing one of our librarian’s comic book/graphic novel collection. Come check it out on the first floor of the library!
We’re going to miss you, but we know you’ll do great things out in the world. Come back and visit us in the library!
As the semester winds down, please be mindful that the Library CAN NOT take any rental books back which were rented from the Bookstore! Those books need to be brought back to the Bookstore, to clear your account so you won’t be charged replacement fees. The Library isn’t responsible for your Bookstore rentals which are left with us.
We don’t want to leave you hanging! Remember to return where you got them. Thanks!
If you have any outstanding items on your account – from books to phone chargers to dry erase markers – you will be “billed and blocked” from getting your actual diploma if you’re a graduate and/or your final grades for the semester. DO NOT WAIT until May 17 – May 19 to clear this up, as the closer to Graduation / end of the semester the longer it will take to go through all proper channels to take the block off. It won’t be an immediate remedy, so PLEASE check your bookbags, dorm rooms, cars, etc and bring everything back to the library ASAP. Clear your account today!
Exam week is always the busiest week for our Library Study Rooms, and many patrons have them reserved in advance. If you go into a study room which appears to be empty, and you did not reserve that room, please remember a study group may show up and ask you to leave as they have the room reserved – and you must cooperate and find another place to study. We thank you in advance for your understanding in this matter!
