How do you celebrate the New Year? Across the globe, there are countless traditions that make the New Year unique and meaningful – regardless if it’s celebrated at the beginning of January or in the middle of July or September. Please visit the display cases by the elevators on the 2nd floor of the FHG Library to learn more about the variety of materials that our library has to offer on this subject, as well as to partake in some of the many different customs that take place around the world each year. Take advantage of this highly interactive display to share your traditions with us and to participate in a few new ones! From December 2-13th, we will be revealing one New Year fact or special activity each day. Be sure to stop by and participate! Look for us on Facebook or on Twitter @FHGlibrary for even more information and ways to participate! #FHGNewYears
Not much longer to complete those assignments and study for finals! Starting today, December 1, WCU Libraries offers extended hours, including overnight study in the Starbucks Cafe area. See the hours page for more details. And go here to get help from a librarian for that research paper or project!
Remembering those who have served, and continue to serve, in the U.S. military, on this Veterans Day, the WCU Libraries has published a new online guide to Veterans' Resources. This guide provides links to government. non-governmental, WCU, and local resources for jobs, and education as well as telephone hotlines. And, of course, resources from WCU Libraries for reading, learning and researching about veterans and military history.
We also have an Exhibit of books and government documents about military history and for veterans - as well as materials from our Special Collections - posters, memorabilia, yearbook photos and letters from students who were soldiers during World War I. The two exhibit cases are on the 2nd floor across from the Reserves Desk (outside the QVC Collaborative Study Room). Stop by and take a look - and check out any of the books or documents in the open case!
