Check out the exhibit Cool Reads for Hot Days (Summer Beach Reading 2015) at the DiMenna-Nyselius Library from June 15th - August 15th. This fun-in-the-sun display features book recommendations suggested by graduate and undergraduate students posted on Fairfield University's ThinkSpace blog. Also included is a photography collection called (S)summer Series by JUHAN alumna Maria Clinton '13. She notes, "The (S)summer series is a reflection of the world around me during the vibrant, colorful, and serene moments that summer has to offer. Water is a communicative element, inspiring feelings of awe and wonder." This series of water-themed photographs contributes to the University's ongoing Water Focus initiative.

"A little more than a week ago, the study's lead author, Johannes Bohannon, made a startling confession: The study was a hoax! And, what's more, he wasn't Johannes Bohannon — affiliate of the fictional Institute for Diet and Health — but journalist John Bohannon, out to make a point about the media's willingness to uncritically report and promote junk science."
What responsibilities do we have to be CRITICAL evaluators of information?

We look forward to meeting our first-year students
as they register in the Library.
We'll be handing out COFFEE TRAVEL MUGS to all first-years and inviting them to follow us on social media! Librarians will also be at the Information Fair to talk with students and parents about how the Library can support all students.
