News and Announcements

As we head into finals at the end of the month, we thought it was only fitting to recognize that it is also National Stress Awareness Month. We have compiled a list of e-resources that focus on stress and anxiety management. 



Check out our librarian Kristy Padron's latest blog post about social media and copyright infringement. She dives into three commonly asked questions about whether or not what you post on social media is actually infringing on copyright. 


As we celebrate Women’s History month, the library would like to highlight FAU’s Feminist Graduate Student Association’s publication, Femiliarize Yourself. This publication has been a student-driven from the beginning. Students propose, organize, write, edit, and print issues autonomously. They express current feminist thinking about contemporary issues through a medium that is powerfully resonant of 90s feminist zines and other alternative media production.

Join us for our virtual Human Library on March 23, 2021 for the chance to "unjudge" someone. The Human Library is an event that creates a safe space for dialogue about individuals from the FAU community who have experienced discrimination based on race, religion, sexual orientation, class, gender identity, sex, age, lifestyle choices, disability, and any other aspect of their life that has been seen through biases. Register and check out your human "book" today!

Celebrate Every BODY Week serves as a reminder to focus on ways to accept and appreciate our bodies for all that they can do! We have compiled a list of books, e-books, and podcasts that students can reference if they are looking to develop a healthier relationship with their body and food. 


Fair Use Week is February 22 – 26, 2021.  The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) designated this time to highlight and promote what fair use allows us to do with copyrighted works. Click the link to learn more!
