Archives Window Display

Thanks to the efforts of Lacie Micek, an archives student worker, there is a wonderful new display on the windows of the College and Lutheran Church Archives.

His experience with a cochlear implant – a device to enable hearing in the deaf – made him reflect on the human/computer connection, which is reflected in Rebuilt and is expanded to explore […]

Welcome – Through the Front Door

With Beck Hall now open, it may be tempting to use the library’s staff-only rear exit as a short cut. Because libraries need security, we hope you won’t find it too inconvenient to use the front door instead. We know we can trust you, but not everyone is as trustworthy. So you will find that […]
