Take a peek into the love letters of famous literary couples – and former Emory students – in the exhibition “With Love,” on view through March 8, 2012 in the Concourse Gallery on Level 2 of the Woodruff Library.
In response to student requests, the Robert W. Woodruff Library at Emory University will extend its hours for Levels 1 through 3 on Friday and Saturday until midnight, starting Feb. 3. Previously those library levels closed at 8 pm.
The extended hours apply to the use of the space and computers, but not to the service desk, said library security team leader Terence Jefferson.
Attention students and faculty members! Woodruff Library is again sponsoring an award for undergraduate research. A panel of faculty and librarians will award up to three prizes of $500 each to those undergraduate students who 1) make extensive use of the Emory Libraries' collections and research resources in their original scholarship; and 2) show evidence of critical analysis in their research skills (i.e., locating, selecting, evaluating, and synthesizing information). At least one prize will go to a first-year student.
