Lerch ACRL Poster Session

Maureen Lerch from Wayne Library will be presenting at a poster session during next week’s ACRL Conference:

“Campus Conversations: Fostering Culture Change through Book Discussion” — Find out how a university branch library planned and facilitated a college wide book discussion series in support of the College’s “Bridges Out of Poverty / Bridges to Campus” strategic initiative to improve the campus climate for first generation and under-resourced students on campus.

The Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) is the higher education association for librarians. The ACRL Conference is your once-every-two-years opportunity to access the best information, discover new ideas, and stay at the forefront of the profession. The ACRL 2019 will be held April 10 – 13, 2019, at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland.  For more information:  https://s4.goeshow.com/acrl/national/2019/conference_schedule.cfm

Nice going, Maureen!

Fleischer and Newhall Help Produce Documentary

Fleischer and Newhall Help Produce Documentary

Victor Fleischer in Archival Services and Jamie Newhall in Design & Development Services helped produce a documentary film last fall.  Titled “Lost Voices of the Great War: Summit County in the First World War,” the film recounts the story of Summit County residents’ experiences at home and overseas during the “War to End All Wars.”  The documentary aired on PBS 45/49 last fall and can be seen online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bM5BoFr-ov4&feature=youtu.be.  DVD copies can also be checked out at Bierce Library.

Fleischer served as researcher, writer, and co-producer, while Newhall served as editor and filmed much of the reenactment footage that appeared in the film.  The documentary was produced in partnership with Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens.

Nicely done, Vic & Jamie!
