Starting the week of May 13, and continuing on through the end of August, you will notice our library hours have changed to accommodate the Summer Session here at Bryant. The link to our hours can be found below, so please check it out on a regular basis for seasonal adjustments throughout the Spring and Summer!
Exam week is always the busiest week for our Library Study Rooms, and many patrons have them reserved in advance. If you go into a study room which appears to be empty, and you did not reserve that room, please remember a study group may show up and ask you to leave as they have the room reserved – and you must cooperate and find another place to study. We thank you in advance for your understanding in this matter!
A very important week is upon us all – it’s the “Fair Use / Fair Dealing” week which runs from February 26 – March 2, 2018. It’s a week coordinated by the Association of Research Libraries, celebrating the importance of fair use in the United States and fair dealing in Canada and other jurisdictions. In it’s simplest terms, “fair use” and “fair dealing” are the legal use of copyrighted materials without permission from the copyright holder under certain circumstances – something students and educators deal with on a daily basis. For more information and ideas on how you can be an active participator, please visit their site: Association of Research Libraries
For those of you who love Masterpiece Theater’s current mini-series “Victoria”, you may very well be delighted in the new book Queen Victoria’s Matchmaking: The Royal Marriages That Shaped Europe. Author Deborah Cadbury offers a gripping account of the Queen’s meddlesome matchmaking skills in her grandchildren’s lives, to help turn Europe’s strife into happiness. Some of the unions were blissful while most were catastrophic – making an enjoyable read this winter!
Thank You to everyone for voting in the Thanksgiving Basket Contest in the Roto on November 16th. We won 1st Place this year (our first time, ever), which makes all the time and effort into planning, organizing and creating our CornuKruppia most rewarding! Overall, 262 votes were cast (the most ever) in the contest, and 26 baskets were entered – with all the food donations going to the Capital City Community Center in Providence, feeding needy families this Holiday season. Again, thank you all so much!
