Walsh Gallery Hosting Panel Discussion on Art-Science Dialogues in the 21st Century

#SHU_Libraries The Walsh Gallery will be hosting a Panel Discussion on Art-Science Dialogues in the 21st Century. This  is an interdisciplinary program in association with the exhibition “Strange Attractors” and will be held in Walsh Gallery on Friday, March 8th, 7pm–9pm.

“Strange Attractors” explores the intersection of art and science in our era of increasing interdisciplinary dialogue. Both the panel and exhibition were conceived as an extension of a symposium hosted at New York City’s CUE Art Foundation in November 2017 that addressed ways in which an art-science alliance might contribute to the larger cultural discourse.

Panelists include: Luis Schettino, Associate Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Lafayette College; Farzad Mahootian, a philosopher and religious studies scholar and Faculty of Liberal Studies, New York University; and Carrie Rohrman, author of “Choreographies of the Living” and Associate Professor of English at Lafayette College.  The panel will be moderated by Taney Roniger.

The objective of the panel and exhibition is to consider ways in which the arts and sciences might join forces to pursue common goals.  Both are designed to foster a creative space in which students, artists, scholars, and members of the community can engage with art through interdisciplinary frameworks.

The panel discussion and exhibition are free and open to the public.  A full-color catalogue with essays by Taney Roniger and Jeanne Brasile is available at Walsh gallery.  The exhibition is presented with generous support from the internationally renowned The Robert Lehman Foundation and the Essex County Arts Council, through a re-grant of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, A Partner Agency of the National Endowment of the Arts.

New Acquisition: Library of Latin Texts

The University Libraries has recently acquired an important scholarly resource, the Library of Latin Texts. The Library contains texts from the beginning of Latin literature to the the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965).

The Library of Latin Texts is a searchable full-text database of classical, patristic, medieval and neo-Latin writers. It includes:

  • Literature from Antiquity (Plautus, Terence, Caesar, Cicero, Virgil, Horace, Ovid, Titius-Livius, the Senecas, the two Plinys, Tacitus and Quintilian and others).
  • Literature from Patristic Authors (Ambrose, Augustine, Ausonius, Cassian, Cyprian, Gregory the Great, Jerome, Marius Victorinus, Novatian, Paulinus of Nola, Prudentius, Tertullian and others) It also contains non-Christian literature of that period (Ammianus Marcellinus, the Scriptores Historiae Augustae, Claudian, Macrobius and Martianus Cappella).
  • Literature from the Middle Ages (Anselm of Canterbury, Beatus de Liebana, Bernard of Clairvaux, William of St. Thierry, Sedulius Scottus, Thomas à Kempis, Thomas de Celano, the Sentences of Peter Lombard, the Rationale of Guilelmus Durandus and important works by Abelard, Bonaventure, Ramon Llull, Thomas Aquinas, William of Ockham and others).
  • Neo-Latin Literature (decrees from the modern ecumenical Church councils up to Vatican II and translations into Latin of important sixteenth-century works).

The Library of Latin Texts has two parts, Series A and Serllties B. According to the publisher, Series B “is drawn from the existing scholarly editions whereas the Library of Latin Texts – Series A benefits from the additional intensive research work undertaken by the Centre ‘Traditio Litterarum Occidentalium'”

Walsh Library Silent Study Room will Close in May, 2016

To accommodate some changes in programs among the very tight space allocations across the Seton Hall University campus, the Silent Study Room will be re-assigned temporarily for use by undergraduate Admissions, starting in May 2016. This change will be in effect for the next few semesters.

We understand what this space means and those who value it will miss the Silent Study Room. As an alternative I encourage you to use the library’s 3rd and 4th floors, which are designated as permanent quiet study areas.  Please feel free to contact me with any concerns.

New Jersey Library Association Research Award Winners 2016: Beth Bloom & Marta Deyrup

Beth Bloom, coordinator of library instruction, and Marta Deyrup, head of technical services at  Seton Hall University Libraries, have won the New Jersey Library Association, Association of College and Research Libraries 2016 Research Award for their article, “The SHU Research Logs: Student Online Search Behaviors Trans-scripted” in The Journal of Academic Librarianship 41 (2015) 593-601.

M&BBloom and Deyrup have been collaborating on Information Literacy for more than a decade, having published articles, book chapters, and creating tutorials on this very critical issue. In 2011 they received a $15,000 Google grant to study how students perform on-line academic research. Their research strategy was unique in that they used a tracking product that allowed students to record and comment on their research in venues of their own choosing, without supervision. The research provided results that not only supported recent theory about students’ on-line behaviors, but that also provide stimulus for a reevaluation of how teachers approach and assign research projects. This award-winning article is a product of that study.

Congratulations Beth and Marta!
