We had our 3rd annual (after a 2 year hiatus due to COVID) Library Con on April 24th. The event was well attended and feedback from attendees was positive, with many asking about our next event. We are already planning for next fall!

Librarians Carrie Fishner and Sarah Meisch-Lacombe partnered with History Professor Terry Hamblin's New York History class to develop an interactive display and exhibit on immigration pertaining to New York and its residents in April and May. Students developed an exhibit, a LibGuide, a poster, and an interactive map for campus community members.

Steve Dixon has a forthcoming article for Library Journal on building a collection around soccer.

Scholarly Communications Librarian Jenny Collins has been working closely with several nursing faculty to develop new OER offerings in the department, including a revised edition of the Death and Dying textbook.

The Resnick Library is excited to welcome Kate Fitz-Henry who will be joining our team in July as the new Electronic Resources & Systems Librarian.
