Happy New Year!

Armacost Library wishes the entire community a Happy New Year! This is always a good time to reflect on the accomplishments of the past year. Some highlights of 2013 include Armacost Library’s involvement in such programs as World Book Night and Read Across America. A series of book discussions, invited speakers and film showings were provided as part of the program Muslim Journeys, which will continue into the 2014 Spring Semester.

Armacost Library also had the pleasure of displaying student art in the entryway of the library, including sculpture and two-dimensional design pieces. High quality undergraduate student work was celebrated at the 5th annual Armacost Library Undergraduate Research Award reception and faculty work was also given praise at the Information Literacy Faculty Showcase.

The Library launched its mobile version of its website, which allows the community to browse library resources on their handheld devices. Also, the 2013 Fall semester marks the beginning of an extensive research project, titled Assessment in Action, on how information literacy instruction impacts student achievement. The Assessment in Action team will continue this research project over the next three years – stay tuned for the results!

All in all, 2013 was a busy and fulfilling year. We welcome you back in 2014 and look forward to seeing you in the library!
