- March 8th is International Women's Day: The theme for this year is #PressforProgress, selected by campaign organizers in response to #MeToo and recent reports that global gender parity is 200 years away.

- Spring Break 2018 Hours: Click here for a quick overview of the Library's hours during Spring Break.
- Did You Know That the Library has a Leisure Reading Collection? We created the leisure reading collection in order to provide students, staff, and faculty with an additional place to borrow books to check out and read in their free time.
- What's Up Thursdays: On Thursday, March 1st at 12:00pm in the DisCo, join us for our next bi-weekly conversation; this week's topic is "'Reclaiming My Time': Women On the American Political Stage." Recent data from the Inter-Parliamentary Union has ranked the U.S. 99th (out of the 192 countries assessed) for its representation of women in government.
- Research Forum: On Monday, March 12th at 2:30pm in the south end of the first floor of the Library, Brendan O'Sullivan, Associate Professor of Philosophy, will give a talk titled "Where Does It Hurt? Tensions in Our Concept of Pain."
- Lexis Nexis Academic is now Nexis Uni: On February 28th, Lexis Nexis Academic was retired and replaced by Nexis Uni. The new search interface enables quick discovery across all content types, personalized discipline pages for those who set up individual profiles and a collaborative workspace for group assignments. You'll find NexisUni on the Databases LibGuide under "N"; please note that due to the known, ongoing security certificate issues, many features of NexisUni are currently only available on campus. We have provided two links, in order to allow on-campus users to access the full database, and give some options for off-campus use.
- Look for the New Loo Lowdown After Spring Break: Our Web & Social Media intern, Rachel Riani '19, is helping the Library share information by creating a monthly "Loo Lowdown." The flyer will let you know some of what's going on in the Library each month. Find it in the Library's "Loos"!
- What can I book? What can you book in the Library? You can book group study rooms and book appointments with a librarian, all online.
- Security Certificate Warnings in Library Resources: The Library provides off-campus access to databases via a proxy server; due to websites increasing their security protocols, we are seeing a dramatic increase in the number of security certificate warnings received when trying to access resources.
