Good News....

Our University Public Relations office sends out a good news note everyday and Friday's reported on Kevin McLatchy's upcoming art show. Kevin is the Archives technician and a very gifted artist. The following good news includes that item and a few others from library land:

Visit the Andrew and Carol Weller Gallery in Fellows Riverside Gardens in Youngstown, Ohio's Mill Creek Park from now until June 3 to view Kevin McLatchy's inspiring artwork. The exhibit is entitled "Interpretations of Nature" and features his unique landscape drawings, most from the Slippery Rock and Lawrence County area. That's wonderful, Kevin!

Librarian Aiping Chen-Gaffey reports that she has completed the records for Early English Books Online, 96,235 titles now accessible through the library's catalog. This valuable collection, which includes the Thomason Tracts (1640-1661,) Pollard and Redgrave's Short-Title Catalogue (1475-1640,) and the Wing Short-Title Catalogue (1641-1700) represents historical works from the first book printed in English to works from the era of Spenser and Shakespeare. These items were formerly only available at Slippery Rock on microcards... Thank you, Aiping!

Librarian Judy Silva announces that Katie Forrest, a student employee in the Archives department, has been accepted into the University of Pittsburgh School of Library and Information Science for archival studies. Congratulations, Katie!

And just in time for National Library Week, Librarian Lynn Hoffmann informs us that Greenwood Publishing is providing free access to their resources in celebration. This includes The Latino American Experience, The African American Experience, Praeger Security International Online, Daily Life through History, World Cultures Today, World Folklore and Folklife, The Reader's Advisor Online, Greenwood Digital Collection, and ARBA Online.
Visit Greenwood Publishing for more details... Thanks for sharing, Lynn!

There are a lot of fun activities planned for National Library Week... stay tuned for information from our own Public Relations committee.
