collect books


What do librarians do while the students are away?  Well, this summer, we’re quite busy shifting, re-shelving, and cleaning in the stacks!   Things might be a bit quieter than usual on our Tumblr this summer as we’re away from our desks, but we’ll post photos and videos so that you can follow along with our discoveries. 

Here’s one of our summer projects that’s already nearing completion.  We’ve shifted all of our comic reference materials out of the closed stacks and integrated them into our reading room reference - meaning that they are now browsable!  Come by, visit, take a look around, and find some good books about comic books to read.

“It’s Oscar Wilde, it’s military, it’s dandy, it’s aristocratic, it’s romantic,”

“What if the moon is in love with the sun? What if the sun is also in love with the moon? But it’s a forbidden love. Between them, love is not as powerful as it is between two people– What if that’s the reason why we have night and day because they keep on chasing each other, every second, every minute– Isn’t it sad to think that if they’re really in love, it’s sad to see and to think that they’re really not meant to be together.” She said while looking in the beautiful twilight.
He looked at her watching the soft glowing light from the sun and said, “Well, it’s not that sad. You see, they found a way to meet twice a day. The Sun And Moon make love in the dawn and dusk– and I think that’s beautiful.”

My collection of art journal type books (as of December 2016) is officially too big for a stack, they had to be laid down.
