Here’s your daily dose of library-oriented speed-reads to start your day!
“Cambridge Companions are great fully-searchable online resources and we have them on a TON of topics, especially in English and History. If you have a paper to write on Paradise Lost, try searching the library catalog for ‘Cambridge Companion Milton’ or ‘Cambridge Companion Paradise Lost’ – if we have one on the topic, it will pop up.”

TODAY IN THE LIBRARY…
To provide students with additional late night study facilities, the main Library will have extended hours beginning Monday, Dec. 7th. We’ll be open most nights until 3:00 a.m.
As always, you can use your Wildcard to swipe into the 24/7 lounge, Falvey Hall lounge and Reading Room after hours. Take advantage of our cozy and inspirational spaces for quiet study. Check the Hours link on the library homepage for a full listing of extended hours.
From everyone at Falvey, good luck on your papers and final exams!
SAVE THE DATE
You get more than text in How to Make and Set Traps, the latest eBook release produced by Falvey’s collaboration with Distributed Proofreaders. There are trap illustrations and songs about rats & otters! According to a review by Demian Katz of Dime Novel fame, the book mixes “dense and convoluted details of trap-building with anecdotes about animal behavior, reflections on the definition of “vermin,” and a strong sense of the Victorian era.” Allow us to share a rather graphic quote that Katz highlighted in his review:
Emphatically I declare it—a weasel never relinquishes its quarry till the life’s blood has been sucked and the brain extracted and eaten.
Makes you want to download it and read it right now, doesn’t it? Uh huh. Thought so.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
Today music fans remember John Lennon, half of the songwriting team that made The Beatles, well, The Beatles. As most people know, John Lennon was assassinated this day in 1980.
“If someone thinks that love and peace is a cliche that must have been left behind in the Sixties, that’s his problem. Love and peace are eternal.” – John Lennon
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
