Dr. Golian-Lui: "Welcome, FAU Owls, to YOUR libraries!"

 

Jaffe Center for Book Arts is hosting an open house for Letterpress Appreciation Day on Sunday, September 18, and Monday, September 19, from 12 to 4 p.m. Guests can tour the shop, print a souvenir poster on the 1890 Wesel Iron Hand Press, and watch PRESSING ON: The Letterpress Film.

 

This fall, the FAU Libraries will be offering a full slate of workshops designed to help you navigate the resources in the library to be successful at FAU. In addition to in-person workshops, several will be offered live online. All workshop participants are entered into a drawing for a prize giveaway. 

 

As the Fall Semester starts, FAU Libraries return to normal operating hours.

 

A collection of print and electronic books, databases, and videos, the Pop-Up library is a helpful resource for researchers and those interested in the topic. Learn about Hadzabe, a forty-thousand-year-old hunter-gatherer tribe in Tanzania, one of the last ones on the planet. Then watch a story about the traditions of indigenous peoples in Japan and read about the history of tribes in Siberia, Australia, and Latin America.
