November Recap

It’s a good thing winter break is almost here, because this has been a crazy month! Here’s a recap of what we’ve accomplished and celebrated in the last few weeks:

How Blue Can You Get?, a blues lecture concert presented by the School of Arts and Communication’s Kyle Knappenberger, was a big hit with campus and community members.

We celebrated International Games Day for the first time on November 15th, and on November 21st, around 80 people made their way to the library for our African Drum circle.


We had a great turn out for drum circle.

Also on November 21st, 88 people visited the University Archives/Special Collections booth at the WFIT Market Day where we raffled off a reproduction of the historic photo of Dr. Jerome Keuper unveiling the Chinese clock in Panther Plaza. Many of our visitors were present at the 1981 unveiling, which was a special treat. Congratulations to our raffle winner, John Stevens of the Office of Information Technology!

Tom Wells of Harris Corporation and Frank Perkins formerly of Radiation Inc. and Harris Corporation, met with the Evans Library Special Collections team to discuss a possible collaboration on preserving the history of Radiation Inc. We’re excited for the opportunity to help preserve this slice of Melbourne history.

James Baucom of the User Experience team was recently awarded by the International Student Service Organization for his exemplary service to international students at Florida Tech. Congratulations, Jim!

November also saw the kick off our new post series, Library Tip Tuesday. In the future, these bi-weekly posts will cover information about using your library to its fullest extent.  Next semester, look for more post series and special posts covering topics like stress, research resources, and MOOCS. If there’s a topic you’d like to see on our blog, please leave a comment or send us a message!
