Last week, while Cooper was still closed because of the inclement weather, we moved some stuff around. Did you notice?

We are getting the 5th floor ready for the upcoming Adobe Digital Studio construction. We had to move all the furniture out of the area and into different locations in the building. We moved most of the furniture down to the the 3rd floor.

So, if your favorite chair or table is gone, maybe we just gave it a new home. Go take a look!

snowflakesIn advance of what is supposed to be snowy, winter-y weather for us; Cooper Library will close our services tonight (Wednesday, February 25) at 6pm. What that means is there will be no reference or circulation services but the building will remain open*. So basically, you can study but you can’t check out books.

*The building will remain open UNLESS the university decides to close earlier, for instance if night classes are cancelled then the building will close.

Tillman Media Center and Gunnin Architecture Library will close at 6pm. Special Collections Library regularly closes at 4:30pm.

Come back here or follow us on Twitter or Facebook for updates.

For information on the University follow the CUSafety page.

Librarian and Faculty Collaboration

Last week, one of our librarians, Anne Grant, collaborated with faculty member, Gwynn Powell to create a study guide for a class and then worked with the students in that class.

Below is a quote from Dr. Powell:

Sanne grantpecial thanks to Anne Grant for creating a great resource page for PRTM 2200 Historic Figure project (with Dr. Teresa Tucker and Dr. Gwynn Powell)  and then going the extra mile by serving as a moderator for the Polis Discussion! She had Socrates, John Locke, Philippe Pinel, Fran Mainela and more characters and rabble rousers around the table. It was a wonderful support for the student learning!!

We love working with faculty members and students! If you would like for us to create specialized research guides for one of your classes or if you have a question, just ask a librarian.
