Yes, a student's lot is not an easy one.  And there's not a whole lot the Library can do to ease the burden.  But we can offer to help you find those articles, books, whatever you need to perfect that term paper. We can provide a great variety of study spaces to suit your particular study habits.

Drop by the Library's classroom (LI135) this Thursday, March 12 at 3 o'clock to hear three of our faculty talk on the theme, Living Connections: From Ecology to Economy.

Admission, as always, is free and everyone is welcome.  See you there.

Books, Design, Truth and Fiction

We're one of the sponsors of a unique and engaging event which will take place this week.

Warren Lehrer is a U.S.-based writer and designer who will be presenting a multimedia performance and reading of his new "illuminated novel", A Life In Books: the Rise and Fall of Bleu Mobley.

The work has been described as, "containing 101 books, all written by Lehrer's protaganist - a controversial author who finds himself in prison looking back on his life and career".

If you're interested, you can find out more at Lehrer's web site or the book's.

Here's what you need to know:

Where? Halifax Central Library, Paul O'Regan Hall
When? Friday, March 13 at 12 noon

And I'd suggest you get there early.
