20160205_104430

When the twilight shadows gather
Out upon the Campus green,
When the blue and purple night
Comes stealing on the scene
Loyal heirs of Villanova
Sing a hymn of praise
To our dear old ALMA MATER
And our College days.
Villanova, Villanova
When we leave your shelt’ring walls,
We shall leave an echo ringing
Through your treasured halls
We will leave an echo ringing
In the silent night
While our memories are singing
Of our Blue and White
When the last big game is over
And the last roll call is heard
When the oldest pedagogue
Has had his final word
We shall come to ALMA MATER
In our dreams again
With a prayer for Villanova
And a sweet amen.

This Week in Villanova History. “IFC Elects Woman President.” Leslie Palmer, “the first female president of the Interfraternity Council,” said, “I find it super challenging because I’m a female leader in a typically male role.” There were eleven Greek organizations in 1980. The Villanovan, Vol. 55, No. 15, p. 9. (Feb. 1, 1980). Bound volumes of The Villanovan are housed in University Archives. The Villanovan may also be accessed through the Digital Library.


QUOTE OF THE DAY

In 1968, Shirley Chisholm became the first African-American Congresswoman. She represented New York in the U.S. House of Representatives for seven years. She had been initially assigned to the House Forestry committee, but demanded reassignment. From Forestry she moved to Veterans’ Affairs and later to the Education and Labor committee. She even made a bid for the U.S. Presidency in 1972! She also authored two books, The Good Fight and Unbought and Unbossed, both of which can be found in our collection.

Tremendous amounts of talent are lost to our society just because that talent wears a skirt.” – Shirley Chisholm

‘Cat in the Stacks: Four in February, Pt. 1

CAT-STAX-300x1802

 I’m Michelle Callaghan, a first-year graduate student at Villanova University. This is our new column, “‘Cat in the Stacks.” I’m the ‘cat. Falvey Memorial Library is the stacks. I’ll be posting about living that scholarly life, from research to study habits to embracing your inner-geek, and how the library community might aid you in all of it.


Did you know Falvey Memorial Library houses the Villanova Electronic Enthusiasts Club? You can join Fridays from 2:30-4:30 p.m. in the first-floor lounge of Falvey Memorial Library for some fun. The VEEC is a social club, focused on recreation and relaxation. Participants gather to play video games in a safe and fun environment. The VEEC is always accepting new members and is open to all!

What is Four in February? An initiative established by
Mike Suszek of the late video game blog Joystiq, FiF encourages gamers to play four games gathering dust on their digital and/or actual video game shelves. There are no hard and fast rules – the games do not have to be completed, for example, especially if they are huge open world games or MMOs. And mobile games can count, too! For the purposes of this blog, Four in February will consist of four posts on the four Thursdays of the month in the interest of promoting the Villanova Electronic Enthusiasts Club and, more generally, to promote video games as cultural items important to our understanding of interdisciplinary studies.

Last year I wrote about some of the games I was going to attempt to play during FiF, and I’ll say this for myself – I started Never Alone and did manage to complete Dear Esther!  Unfortunately (but also very fortunately) this semester I’m knee-deep in an English thesis using a couple of roleplaying video games as primary texts and those games have priority right now. (Okay, admittedly I’m itching to finish Rise of the Tomb Raider, too.)

But if I had the time to play, I’d want to go with some really literature-esque options this time around – something really library-friendly. Something with a little cultural punch! Here’s my list of candidates (that are gathering dust on my digital Steam shelves)!

young woman and young man cartoon video game characters

Broken Age
Broken Age is a point and click adventure about two youngins finding their paths in a crazy world. The game plays as an interactive novel. Reviews consider it a “gorgeous, impeccably written adventure.” 

Apotheon
Apotheon is a love song for Greek mythology! An action roleplaying platformer (yeesh, the game world has to work on its genre classifications, TBH), while playing this game you can “Learn a little about Greek Mythology” because “Apotheon tries to stay true to its source material. Read an excerpt from the Iliad about Diomedes before you stick a Xiphos through his Aspis.” [source

The Stanley Parable
An interactive fiction video game, The Stanley Parable is a satirical take on the illusion of choice-making in modern roleplaying video games. It’s very hard to describe this game. I’ve played through it once, so in essence I barely played it, and it’s one I need to get back to for full appreciation. In lieu of a bumbling description from me, I offer you the official one:

The Stanley Parable is a first person exploration game. You will play as Stanley, and you will not play as Stanley. You will follow a story, you will not follow a story. You will have a choice, you will have no choice. The game will end, the game will never end.

Elegy for a Dead World
Elegy for a Dead World is an exploration game in which players fill out a diary while traversing three worlds based on the writing of poets Keats, Shelley, and and Byron. Yep. You read that right. We’re getting quite literary these days.

Are you a gamer? Comment below with the games you’re burning to play with the free time you lack! Check the blog on Thursdays this month for more gamerly offerings.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Black History Month

Kevin Hart, born July 6, 1979, is an American comedian born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. He got his start at the Laff House – longtime locals might be familiar! Most people know Hart is funny, but did you also know he’s a philanthropist? When the Philadelphia city school district closed 24 schools and cut thousands of employees, Hart donated a quarter million dollars to get new computers for his alma mater district.

comedian kevin hart

You definitely want your kids to understand their heritage, but I don’t want my kids to just focus on being black. They are people. I don’t want them to judge other people or to be judged. I want them to be good people, so good people will treat them accordingly. I preach that to my kids and everything else falls into place.” – Kevin Hart

The Curious ‘Cat: If someone donated millions of dollars for the Library …

Curious 'Cat - image

This week, the Curious ‘Cat asks Villanova students, “Recently alumnus Charles Widger donated $25 Million to the Villanova University School of Law. If someone donated millions of dollars for the Library, what do you think the Library should do with the money?”

RS11265_DSC_0580-scrKristen Post—“Update the building as a whole and add study rooms, more places for people to study, more options and more computers [on the first floor] [Also,] getting more books and finding ways to [provide] more books and programs on computers … For example, students in the business school (and the engineering students) have to [buy computer programs for their courses. I would like the Library to have] computers that already have those programs on them.”

Editor’s note: It is not obvious, but in addition to the 37 PC-based workstations and 4 MAC desktops on the library’s main floor, there’s a computer lab to the rear of Falvey’s first floor that provides 32 additional PC-based workstations.

Maggie Chorlian—“Invest in more computers or more printers. I don’t really know. It’s kind of hard ‘cause I think it has a lot of good – the structure of the Library is really nice as far as visual renovation, which I don’t think we really need any … [We do, however, need] more copy machines … more of those and more printers.”

Editor’s note: The Library does have two photocopiers: one on the first floor and one on the third. In addition, two scanners, capable of sending work to the public printers, are also available on the first floor. 

RS11269_DSC_0584-scrJohn P. Reilly—“I haven’t been in there yet, but I really want to check out Special Collections; I think that’s really interesting. So expanding in that would be really cool. I feel like most people would want study space … Expanding Special Collections would be really cool, and then more study space on the ground floor. Expanding the Library, too, would be nice ‘cause I take out books, multiple books every week.”

 

RS11270_DSC_0585-scr

 

Cana Anduze—“Besides getting comfier couches, it would be good if we installed newer computers that ran better. Also, getting a new printer system that wouldn’t disconnect or shut down as much as it does, or malfunction. Besides that, I think everything is pretty good here.”

Editor’s note: Students may not have noticed, because it happened before the start of the spring semester, that the Library replaced its two first-floor public printers with three new printers.RS11273_DSC_0589-scr

Brian King—“Extend the hours, more open space. I noticed, during finals week everything becomes really crowded, so more table space for quiet work. … Maybe name the Library after you, too.”

 

RS11276_DSC_0592-scr

 

 

 

 

 

Mariel Folvik—“There should be a lounge for English majors because all the other majors seem to have someplace they can all go. And then English majors are like, ‘I’ll just go to the Library.’ There isn’t really one place, you know? And if it’s going to be the Library, then why not there?

Also, something with the temperature control on the fourth floor ‘cause it’s either really hot or freezing; there’s no in-between. And as someone who works there, it’s really difficult. It’s like, ‘I need to leave so I can feel my hands again. I’ll be right back.’”

Window Shopping: Made for You

VAL WINDOW

The library’s latest window display, “Made for Each Other,” introduces the library’s research support subject librarians using a Valentine’s Day theme of hearts (tiny silver ones, larger pink, red and blackboard-painted hearts), other pinks and reds, and, most appropriate for this winter, touches of artificial snow. Across the top shelf, short stacks of books create a statement, “Books & books & books & books,” followed by “YOU &” plus two panels with photographs of librarians identified by their names and subject areas, that is “You and Your Subject Librarian.”  The next shelf says, “Books & books. #HAPPY VDAY.” The theme continues across the bottom of the window with more books, hearts and information on the various ways one can contact a subject librarian. The window provides important information about subject librarians and a reminder that Valentine’s Day is a February holiday.

This large window exhibit, designed by Joanne Quinn, Communication and Service Promotion team leader and Falvey’s graphic designer, was mounted by Scholarly Outreach graduate assistant, Kallie Stahl. Kyle Bowles and Anne Stankiewicz helped Stahl with the installation.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today, the second day of Black History Month, we recognize Matt Baker (1921-1959), the first commercially successful black comic artist. Baker studied art at the Cooper Union School of Engineering, Art, and Design in New York City’s East Village. He was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2009. You can learn more about Baker here!

photo of matt baker

Comic artist Al Feldstein on Matt Baker: “…he was a rare phenomenon in an industry almost totally dominated by white males. However, he was extremely talented, and it was his talent that overcame any resistance to his presence based on racial bias. But I feel that Matt, personally, was acutely aware of the perceived chasm that separated him from the rest of us. And it may be that because of that perceived problem there is little known about Matt Baker, aside from his stunning artwork that speaks for himself.” [source]
