Remembering 9/11

(From the University home page)

This year will mark the tenth anniversary of the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001. For the University, the anniversary will be a time to remember the 15 alumni – and countless others – who lost their lives in the attacks of 9/11.

Renovation Review: Temporary Offices

Are you a student looking for a job in the library? Do you need to meet with the library director? Are you a contractor working in the library facility? Are you working with library staff on an event?

We can help you find your way to our temporary offices.

In order for construction to begin on the second floor of Falvey Library, a few people had to move into Old Falvey. The library director and staff from the business & administration, outreach, communication, and digital projects teams are now located in the former Reading Room on the second floor of Old Falvey Hall. That area can be accessed from the Old Falvey main entrance. Listed below are staff who are located in this space:

Jeannine Ahern, Alice Bampton, Margaret Duffy, Alexandra Edwards, Jeff Eisenberg, Mary Heyman, Joseph Lucia, Gina McFadden, Darren Poley, Joanne Quinn, Jackie Smith and Stephen Spatz. (Laura Bang temporarily resides in the resource management area on Falvey Library’s ground floor.)

Feel free to visit our temporary offices!

The Civil War and Reconstruction: A Research Guide

Jutta Seibert, the subject librarian for history, has compiled an online research guide for those interested in the Civil War and Reconstruction.

The purpose of this research guide is to help you discover primary sources related to the Civil War in the Library’s collections. The links in this guide will lead you to diaries, letters, memoirs, travel narratives, newspaper articles, government treatises and documents that you can obtain through Falvey’s print, microform and digital collections.

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War.
