Prizewinning Edible Books

Our 6th annual celebration of the International Edible Book Festival was a really fun event! If you missed it, here are the highlights.

We had three fantastic judges

Dr. Carrie Tippen, Dr. Heather McNaugher, & Sophie Slesinger

who, after some very serious deliberation,

selected four of our five prizewinning edible books:

Best Tasting
Maryem Aslam, Harry Potter
(chocolate oreo ball snitches)

 

Most Sustainable
Molly Tighe, Seitanic VS
(Satanic Verses)

Most Creative Literary Interpretation
Kate Emory, Julius Caesar

Grand Prize:
Amy Lee Heinlen, A Good Man is Hard to Find

The final prize was determined by the attendees, who voted for their favorite book. The winner of this popular vote prize was:

Maria, Trump: The Art of the Deal

Everyone seemed to have a great time and the library lobby was packed:

Want to see ALL the books submitted? Check out the pictures on our Facebook page!

Also, fun fact: The Wikipedia page for the Edible Book Festival has featured a book from our 2012 event since April 2013 (and we didn’t add it!)! We’re famous!

If you missed this year’s event, don’t worry! There’s always next year, and you can even start planning your entry now. All Chatham students, staff, and faculty are invited to submit an edible book.

Streaming Movies for Black History Month

Think you might spend the entire weekend indoors, huddled under a blanket, drinking hot beverages, and watching movies? If so, we have an exciting new database just for you: Swank! Swank features 300 streaming movies, from current popular titles to classics to documentaries.

With February’s celebration of Black History Month, we’d like to point out that Swank includes a number of great titles you can watch:

For a full list of the 300 movies available, please click here (Excel file). Access to Swank is on a trial basis only and will end on June 30, 2016.

Swank requires Google Widevine, which you may need to install in your browser. It should just prompt you through the installation process, but if you have any difficulty, please contact a librarian for assistance.

Please note: Swank movies do not include public performance rights and are only intended for individual or classroom use.

UPDATED: May 18 Upgrade = Off-Campus Access to Library Resources Restored

alertUpdate 5/18/2015 2:10pm: The upgrade is complete, and off-campus access to library databases is now working. If you have any difficulties, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone: 412-365-1670, by email: jkmref@chatham.edu, or by IMing us on our website here: http://library.chatham.edu/.


 

On Monday, May 18th, we will be upgrading EZproxy, which is the tool that allows you to access our library databases from off-campus. This will mean that access to the databases from off-campus will be spotty at best and possibly down all day.

If you normally have to log-in using your Chatham username and password while on-campus (this often happens for computers connecting to the wireless, as well as the occasional desktop computer), that access will be affected as well.

We hope to have the upgrade completed in as timely a manner as possible. Thank you in advance for your patience.

Extended 24/7 Space!

IMG_3863

Room 103

As of April 13, the 24×7 lab will be extended to include rooms 103, LCC1, and the large lab (101) during the hours the library is closed. This provides you with a variety of open tables and computer access as well as group study and individual spaces.

We’re sure many of you are thinking “Great! But where’s the bathroom?” For your comfort and convenience, the Eddy Theatre lobby will be open. The Eddy doors nearest the Library will remain unlocked as well as the wheelchair accessible entrance on the other side of the building.

Please note that during the summer, there will not be an expansion – only the original 24×7 room will be available. The doors to Eddy will remain open, however.

[Note: Updated 5/11/2015 to state that the expansion will not happen during summer]
