Exhibit: Student Library Service Bookplate Program: Dartmouth Class of 2017

The Student Library Service Bookplate Program honors graduating student library employees by inviting them to choose books and other items for the Library’s collections. Each item will include a bookplate acknowledging the student’s selection and recognizing his or her service to the Library. This year Dartmouth College Library honors almost forty students from the Class of 2017 with selections including works of fiction, musical CDs, and classic works of the cartoon arts to a musical score and a history of makeup.

Exhibit design and photography by Dennis Grady, Library Education & Outreach. Many thanks to the students who volunteered to participate in this exhibit and to: Wendel Cox, Librarian for History & English; Greg Potter, Research and Information Desk Coordinator; and Goodie Corriveau, Acquisitions Assistant.

The Evans Map Room is Discarding 1:24K Topographic Maps of the United States

The Evans Map Room in Baker/Berry Library is still giving away parts of its collection of the 1:24,000 U. S. Geological Survey topographic maps of the United States. We are NOT giving away the New England states or New York State at this time, and the state of Maryland and the District of Columbia are gone. However, if you'd like some free maps of your hometown, another place special to you or somebody else's hometown at a scale of 1:24,000, come by the Evans Map Room anytime we are open and get some maps! No reserving maps. This map giveaway will continue until the end of spring term 2017.
