First-Generation College Students Book Display

First-Generation College Students is the theme of the book display on the 1st floor of Drexel Library. In conjunction with National First-Generation College Celebration on November 8th, the display features titles by and about first-generation college students. You can view the selections online or, better yet, stop by and check one out!

Check out our First Gen library guide for more resources.

It’s a Small World: Travel, Discover, Map It!

From Medieval explorers to travel writers of modern day, our November book display is a sampling of books from our collection that tap into various aspects of global travel throughout the ages. Some of the books are about maps —  how certain ones came to be and the historical significance of each. Others tackle more delicate topics that could involve a more personal or philosophical journey to a distant land. One book describes a foreign culture through its culinary offerings and several are focused on the modern pastime of traveling.

It’s a Small World: Travel, Discover, Map It! will be up throughout the month of November. “Explore” the offerings to see if something piques your interest. Better yet, stop by and check one out! The display is on the wall adjacent to the elevator on the 1st floor of the PLC.

Using Open Textbooks as Course Materials

Open Textbooks are textbooks that are licensed to be freely available to the public. The textbooks can be downloaded at no cost or printed more cheaply than traditionally published textbooks. The SJU Library is actively engaged in an Open Textbook initiative. Find out how you can use or adapt open access textbooks to offer your students more affordable course materials.
