Cushing Library Hawk Squawk, Whoa-It’s-Hot Edition



Didn’t make it? We already have 3 videos up from the event on HNU’s YouTube channel, and more to come!  Also see our pictures from the event.


Cushing Library Smart Talk: Library of the Future
Tuesday, October 19, 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. (NOTE LOCATION: Brennan 80)

What will the library of the future look like? Come hear Gary Gorka, Executive Director of the Archbishop Alemany Library at Dominican University, who will share a visual tour of the major renovations and changes he has brought to his library as well as his insights on the direction of libraries in the near future. The talk will begin with a recap by Cushing Library director Karen Schneider of the changes in the past year.

Refreshments will be served, and attendees will have a chance to “whiteboard” their ideas to share with us as well.

Thursday, November 4, 6-8 p.m. (Art talk is from 6:30-7:15)
Professor Robert Simons: “Simultaneous Contrast: An informal and very illustrated conversation about making art.” Location: Library.

This is a 45-minute talk with socializing before and after. Please stop in the library to view the artwork of our second artist-in-residence–it’s quite wonderful!As always, we’ll provide light refreshments.

Persepolis Book Talks

Two faculty and one librarian will be leading book talks in the library about Persepolis, the Connections Project book choice this year. All are welcome!

Monday, November 8, 5 p.m. (Laura Truxler)

Tuesday, November 9, 1:30 p.m. (Karen Schneider)

Thursday, November 11, 1:30 p.m. (Nina Handler)

(Plus note that Dr. Anastasia Prentiss lead a showing/discussion of the movie 7 p.m. Thursday October 28 in the Faculty Lounge.)


Don’t forget the library’s lower level is delightfully cool. Bring your lunch, a work project, or a good book, and get away from this heat!


Part 2 of our survey results are in. Overwhelmingly the answer to the question “If we could make just ONE of the following happen next year, which would be your first choice?” was “Provide a website that would allow you to search across all or most of the databases.”
