Library Staff Member Felix Emiliano was awarded the Bowdoin Student Employee of the Year for his outstanding work at the Hawthorne-Longfellow library circulation desk. Emiliano was nominated and selected from a competitive pool of fifteen nominated students to receive this prestigious reward. Congratulations to Felix and thank you for all your hard work this year!
The library would also like to recognize nominees Dominique Wein from Circulation and Michael McGlinchey from the Interlibrary Loan Department for their hard work and nominations.
The library is planning a summer project to create a new Media Hub in the basement of H-L Library. The goal of the project is to bring together in a central campus location the collections, technology, staff expertise, services, and facilities to support viewing, creating, and manipulating media. The Media Hub will incorporate the existing Scratch Space lab into an expanded facility with flexible teaching and collaboration spaces. At the same time the collections and essential functions of the Sills Language Media Center (LMC) will be relocated and absorbed into the new space, providing an opportunity to improve accessibility, increase service hours, integrate collections, and better utilize staff currently stationed in Sills. The expanded facility will include:
Library and Academic Technology staff will be available in the space to provide expert help with a variety of media-related activities including support for student projects and consultation services for faculty who would like to incorporate film into course assignments or create video lectures for a “flipped” classroom.
Construction should be complete in time for the start of the fall 2015 semester. For more information contact Marjorie Hassen, firstname.lastname@example.org | 207-725-3281.
Join us on the Ramp to Hubbard for an exciting exhibition of portraits by student artists.
Portraits have been around since the dawn of art. Humans have attempted to represent those around them, as well as themselves, for physical and/or emotional likeness. Whether intending to display someone’s personality, or actual physical structure, a portrait can be done in a multitude of mediums. While the history of portraiture is a long one, it’s a challenge that never seems to exhaust artists in their intents for exploration. This show attempts to explore the wide range of experiences of Bowdoin students through their representations of those around them, as well as the plethora of mediums they work in.

The Book as Journey Included in this exhibition are hand made artists’ books created by students from Narrative Structures, a course taught in the Visual Arts Department here at Bowdoin College. These works visually interpret structure and form within the book, in relation to narrative, time, distance and the act of storytelling.
