Enough with the rain already! We’re planning on sunshine and blue skies so we can all gather in front of the Library for a delicious BBQ lunch, Tuesday, May 4, 12:30-2 p.m. (Study Day!) We are also offering docent tours to show off our recent upgrades.

We will buy lunch for Holy Names community members who are not on the meal plan. Pick up a meal coupon in advance from the Student Success Center or the Library; we’ll also pass out coupons while you’re in line. Relax, have some barbecue, and enjoy.

iMACS ARRIVE!

We’ve kept this under wraps, but just in time for the extra library traffic due to final papers and exams, we’re adding 8 iMacs to the library. 4 have gone live (and are already in constant use) and 4 more will be ready by next week.

Watch for a scanner, coming soon. We also have mobile whiteboards–great for group work, and also a quick way to give yourself a private partition for studying.

Big thanks to Campus Services, the IT Department, and Nicole Greenland, sysadmin/faculty-development librarian, who managed the acquisition of these new computers and their accompanying software and equipment.
