Welcome to the Begley Buzz, Begley Library's monthly newsletter. Read on to learn what's happening in the library this month.


Here is a selection of books recently added to the library's collection. These are all available for check-out. If you need help finding them, ask a librarian.


Caroline Buff
Research & Instruction Librarian
BLC 221G

In addition to editing the Begley Buzz, I oversee the library's research and instruction services, including Ask Us 24/7 online research help.  I help students do research and use the library; and I work with faculty to integrate library content into in-person and online courses.



Long Night Against Procrastination, or LNAP, was held on Thursday, May 4th, and was very well attended. In addition to the students who were already in the Learning Commons at the start of the event, another 70+ students signed in to attend. In total around 95 students attended.

According to survey respondents, highlights included therapy pigs and dogs, Success Center's Jeopardy, Academic Advising's Scavenger Hunt, and of course, snacks and refreshments.

There was lots of activity in the tutoring area - right down to the 11pm closing - and other students writing and researching throughout the night - getting the true value out of LNAP between snacks and activities!

- Thank you Beg DeAngelis for contributing this article.


Remember, the library is open during the summer months. We offer research assistance, instruction sessions, and are a cool place to study, work, or just pass the time. Check the library's website for our summer hours.
