Get Paid for Doing Research and Help the Library!

Professors Beth Bloom and Marta Deyrup are seeking Seton Hall sophomores, juniors and seniors to participate this semester (Spring 2012) in a research study. The goal of our project is to understand students’ research behavior patterns, so that we can give better instruction that is modeled on the way students actually do research.
If you are a Seton Hall sophomore, junior or senior you are eligible to participate. You must be enrolled in a class that requires writing a research paper. For your time, you will receive $125 Pirates Gold upon completion of your participation. [Please note: if you participated in this project last semester you are not eligible.]

Your Part in the Project
Participating students will be trained in using OpenHallway, an online tracking tool
As you do your online research, you will be asked to use this online tracking tool to record your search actions. Students will be divided randomly into two groups: one group of students will have a one-on-one research session with a librarian as they do their research; the other group of students will do research using their own research strategies. At the end of the semester, students will be given a final short survey and attend a wrap-up session with the investigators.

We really appreciate your help and time in improving library services. We hope you are interested in our project and will help us out! We look forward to working with you.

The Walsh Gallery is pleased to present “Crossroads: A Shifting Landscape” a multi-media group exhibition of contemporary landscape art curated by Jesse Gordon and Emily Ozga. The included artists address contemporary innovations in the landscape genre visually, thematically and through the use of alternative media. Artwork included in the exhibition also emphasizes the changing role of landscape art in the present day as a platform for socio- political discourse as opposed to a verisimilitude of the natural world. The curators developed this exhibition as a response to the traditional objectives of the genre, demonstrating contemporary concerns about the world we inhabit.

Featured artists include Louise Barry, Carol Chave, Travis Childers, Raquel A. Foote, Richard Gilles, Mikhail Gubin, William Hudders, Nina Jordan, Suzy Kopf, Jeremy Rosenstein Kortes, Franck Lesbros, Susan Maakestad, Jason Meyer, Bruce Pollock, Daniel Rosenbaum, Patrick Seufert, Susan Shaw, Rachel Sitkin, Ryan Thompson, Kati Vilim, Joe Waks and Sook Yoo. The selected artists include an international group, as well as artists from the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area. An exhibition catalogue with an essay by the curators will be available at the Walsh Gallery.
