#Bryant2021 Reads “Grit”

Standard

GritWhile September still seems a month away, our incoming first year students are participating in the “GRIT Initiative” Bryant’s entire incoming class has been asked to read the book Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance and write a 1-2 page reflection for their Gateway course.

The library has the physical book that you can borrow, but if you’re out of state or prefer to access it a different way, you can digitally borrow the audiobook! (1 user at a time, 2-day loan). Start listening now and get ready for September!

 

 

We have ‘Summer Reading’ books for your child’s ‘Summer Reading List’!

Great news for every parent this summer! We are pleased to announce that we have – or can probably have for you in a timely manner – the books on your child’s ‘summer reading list’ which has become mandatory for most schools (Grades 6 – 12). Rather than wait on an endless list for an available copy at your public library, or buy the book out-of-pocket, just order the book here by requesting it from our collection – or ordering it through ILL.  Don’t forget, we have access to titles from libraries around the country – so try us this summer, and pick up all the books your child needs.

Bloomberg Terminals

Standard

Welcome back from break! This semester we have an exciting announcement — we have 10 new Bryant community Bloomberg terminals for faculty, students, and staff to use! These terminals have Bloomberg installed on them, which provides finance data, analytics, communication tools, and more. These terminals have two monitors and a specialized keyboard, so you’ll be able to spot them on the first floor of the library near the windows, and the second floor in the lounge near the study rooms.

To use these terminals, you’ll need to log in to the computer with your Bryant username and password, then make a Bloomberg account. Let us know if you need any help — we have written directions as well.
