ECU Libraries Faculty Survey

The ECU Libraries, in collaboration with the Faculty Senate Libraries Committee, are conducting a needs assessment survey of faculty. Analysis of the results will help us target areas for improvement and plan future services. The 2018 results will be compared to the results of a similar survey conducted in 2014. The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Your participation is very important, and we appreciate your taking time to respond.

Fifth Annual Human Library

This special event allows attendees to check out human beings. Each of the “human books” is pre-selected because they have an interesting life story to share. After attendees choose a human book based on the title and description provided, they are paired with them to have a 10-15 minute conversation. The topics this year include religion and spirituality, health-related topics, families, and more.

The purpose of the event is to open dialog on campus about including people of all beliefs, walks of life, abilities, and backgrounds. This is a Wellness Passport event; classes are invited to take part in the program, as well. It is free and open to the public. 

If you would like to include the event as extra credit for a class or have further questions, please contact Katy Kavanagh Webb at


FaculTea Lecture Series – featuring Dr. Katherine Ford

Please join us for our next FaculTea Lecture Series on Mon., Mar. 26 at 3:30 p.m. in room 2409, located on the second floor of Joyner Library.

Dr. Katherine Ford, associate professor of Hispanic Studies will discuss her recently published book, The Theater of Revisions in the Hispanic Caribbean.

Dr. Ford explores the textured process of rewriting theatrical works in the Spanish-speaking Caribbean. Tracing these themes through community theater groups, ancient Greek theater, religious traditions, and national historical events, Ford weaves script, performance and final product together with an eye to the social significance of revision. Ultimately, to rewrite and revise is to re-envision and re-imagine stage practices in the twentieth-century Hispanic Caribbean.
