Now is the time to say goodbye…

We are nearing the end of the spring semester and whether you are graduating or will be back in the fall, here are a few things to do at Copley Library before you leave.

 

Done with those library books?

Make sure to return your items to Copley Library. There is a drop off location to the left of the Circulation Desk, or, if the library is closed, please use the outside Drop Box to the left of the front doors.

 

Still using your library materials?

Avoid fines and make sure to renew them online using your Library Account. You can also use your library account to see a list of everything you still have checked out.

 

Don’t forget to return any Interlibrary Loan materials you might have before leaving campus. Check your ILL Account online to see if you can renew your items.

 

Copley Library is open during the summer (click here for hours) so come get a great beach read like Ron Burgundy’s autobiography,  Let me off at the top! : my classy life and other musings or the latest by Nora Roberts, The collector.

 

If you are taking summer classes, the library is here to help!  Ask A Librarian will get you started on your research.

 

Have a fantastic summer and we look forward to seeing you in the fall!

Remembering the 1994 Genocide in Rwanda, a new Library exhibit

Image

Currently, on exhibit at Copley Library, Genocide in Rwanda 1994 includes, among books and DVDs from the library’s collection, a painting by Michael Kabanda and photographs by Michele Zousmer.  These artworks illustrate the tragedy that struck this African nation twenty years ago and document the nation’s difficult path to provide both peace and justice for its people.  Kabanda survived the genocide in which as many as one million people perished.  His painting provides an unflinching look at the atrocities committed during the 100 days of horror.  Zousmer is a photographer working “in collaboration with foundations whose efforts are directed toward addressing important social welfare concerns” all over the globe. Her photographs present a glimpse of Rwanda as it is today, a place that is seeking to heal wounds left by the genocide.

The library exhibit is featured in conjunction with a photographic exhibit, Rwanda, 1994-2014, at the Fine Art Galleries in the Joan B. Kroc Institute of Peace and Justice.  Additionally, the Hoehn  Print Study Room is displaying photographs of contemporary Rwanda by John Rowe.  To learn more about the conflict and the country of Rwanda, visit at the library’s subject guide http://libguides.sandiego.edu/rwanda
