An article by Academic Library Sciences personnel Jeanne Hoover (Joyner Library), Elizabeth Ketterman (Laupus Library) and Kathy Cable (Laupus Library), titled “Creating a shared neuroscience collection development policy,” won the Daniel T. Richards prize for writing. The award is presented by the Medical Library Association. The article was published in the Journal of Electronic Resources in Medical Libraries.
An article by Ginny Boyer and Virginia Bacon (Joyner Library), “Beyond Discovery Tools: The Evolution of Discovery at ECU Libraries,” appeared in the September 2013 issue of Against the Grain.
Laupus Library opens its latest art exhibit today with “Artscience in Spacetime: STEAM.”
The exhibit will be on display through March 12.
Dr. Anthony C. Breuer, affiliate professor of neurology in the Brody School of Medicine and a neurologist at East Carolina Neurology, will showcase his collection of acrylic and oil paintings, depicting recognizable see-through images in multiple layers and at times warped to more closely resemble their “actual” appearance in spacetime. His work is conceptual, semi-abstract, and embedded with the nature of reality, energy, and matter, space and time.
The opening reception for the exhibit will be held Jan. 29 from 4:30 p.m. until 6 p.m. in the fourth floor gallery of Laupus Library.
The spring semester exhibit is the third in the Art as Avocation series, which Laupus Library began last year as a way to highlight the artistic talents and self-expression of faculty, staff and students from the Division of Health Sciences who often pursue demanding health care and higher education careers.
Visitors are welcome during normal operating hours posted at http://www.ecu.edu/laupuslibrary or call 252-744-2219. Visit http://www.ecu.edu/laupuslibrary/events/artasavocation/ to learn more about the artist or series.
Jeffrey Coghill and Jennifer Walker of East Carolina University’s Laupus Library presented “Capitalizing on the New Technology: the iPad 2 Project” at the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the Medical Library Association meeting Oct. 12 in Richmond, Va. The project surveyed library users about their use of the Laupus Library iPads available for check out. The aim of the project was to determine how and why the devices are being used by patrons of the academic health sciences library.
Coghill and Jason Cottle of the Laupus Library presented “Creating effective Posters for Presentation: Posters 101” at the same event. This presentation outlined the do’s and don’ts for effective poster presentation. The paper explained appropriate format, style, presentation, color, use of white space and other graphic design elements necessary for a good presentation. The discussion also included examples of good posters versus poor poster design.
