On February 12, 2020, approximately 300 students, faculty and guests attended the 14th Annual Jim and Judy O’Brien Capital Markets Colloquium, which was held at the Walsh Library. The colloquium, co-sponsored by the University Libraries and the Stillman School of Business, was held for the first time at the library, which proved to be an excellent location for the day’s events.
15 concurrent workshops ran from 9:30 a.m.to 6:15 p.m. Some highlights of the day’s events included an opportunity to apprentice with a representative from Napier Park, a credit platform that has 14 billion dollars in assets; a workshop on the growing sector of e-sports; and the dress rehearsal of the 3-time champion CFA Team ((note Seton Hall has won the Chartered Financial Analyst Research Challenge 3 times and placed 11 times).
Jim O’Brien ’82 and Ned May delivered the keynote address. Jim O’Brien is the Senior Managing Partner of Napier ParkGlobal Capital and the recipient of the 2013 Many Are One Humanitarian Award from Seton Hall.

APA 7th Edition: What’s new?
By Kyle Downey, Health Sciences Librarian
Back in October 2019 the American Psychological Association (APA) released the 7th edition of their APA Publication Manual. It has been nearly a decade since the 6th edition was released and with this newest edition we see several additions and revisions.
So, what is new?
Some changes to the new publication will be immediately noticeable to the user who has used the previous 6th edition. First, the new manual is in full color throughout the entire publication. Some other changes include:
- Citing of online material, with a focus on social media
- Inclusion of bias-free language
- Guidelines on writing without bias that addresses age, disability, gender, race and ethnicity, including the singular use of “they”
- Using shortened URLs and shortDOIs if a URL or DOI is long and complex
- Removal of publisher locations for books and book chapters
- An in-text citation with 3 or more authors is to be shortened to include only the first authors name and “et al”
- Website URLs no longer need to be preceded with “Retrieved from” unless there is also a retrieval date
- A single space after any body-text punctuation rather than 2 spaces
To learn more about the new publication manual, check out the APA style blog.
Both the Walsh Library and the IHS Library also have permanent reference copies available for faculty and students to use.
