Mary Hickman paints and lives in Shippensburg, PA. She works realistically, often painting on location (en plein-air) in our beautiful countryside. Mary says, "I believe that the visual arts are a separate language that speaks to the human spirit. A meaningful work of art can greatly enhance ones' day-to-day life. Often, the viewer will see things particular to themself, things that the artist didn't consciously include. Thus, the viewer contributes to the creative process."

The designer of the banner is Robert McIlhenny of McIlhenny Banners of Gettysburg who got very excited about the project. He described his creation by saying "The moon's reflection is seen in the water, but not the reflection of the ship. To me, the ship represents the imagination, like a vision or a dream." He was also inspired by the following poem by Emily Dickinson.
There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page
Of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
That bears a human soul!
Our hats are off to Mr. McIlhenny for the excellent work. Please come and see the banner for yourself as it takes a prime spot in our lobby.

Improvements to Library Reserves!
Everyone logs on to Library Course Reserves here:
Professors! Library Course Reserves have changed a little from last year. The library has put together a Guide covering eReserves for Faculty:
Long story short:
- Library Course Reserves uses the same software as last year (Ares) *but* Ares does not integrate with Desire 2 Learn (D2L)
- Professors create their own Class(es) in Ares
- If you used Library Reserves through Ares last year, you may be able to "Clone" your previous Class information into the new semester (see the eReserves for Faculty Guide)
- If you need a completely new Class, you may create your own class (see the Guide)
- Students find their Class(es) and Add them to their eReserves Profile
Students! Library Course Reserves have changed a little from last year. The library has put together a Guide covering eReserves for Students:
- Login with your Ship email address and password
- Click "Search Classes"
- Use "Search by Instructor" & Select: Professor’s Name
- Click "Go"
- Click the Green Plus Sign next to this course to add a Class to your "My Classes" list
Once the Class is added, it will be available on the main page after you login to Library Course Reserves.

Works by Mary A. B. Brindle will be on display in the Lehman Library Gallery from April 12 to May 7th, 2010. Mary A. B. Brindle, an artist and a patron has continued to make art throughout her life, despite the obstacles of recovering from an illness that has left her bound to her wheelchair. Her work is a testament to the powerful impulse for art and the joy it brings to her audience. The show will include a series of sensitively drawn ink and pastel landscapes and still life’s.
Have you ever thought about what Librarians do when you aren't here? Most of us actually have lives. One of us is headed to Georgia for the break. Two of us are going to Italy. Several of us, though, have alter-egos. When you get back see if you can guess who these "Super-Librarians" are at work. By the way, have fun.
"Ink & Bamboo" by Professor Jan Ruby in the Main Gallery of Lehman Library. Professor Ruby spent a semester in Taiwan as a visiting professor at Taipei Municipal College. On exhibit are the numerous artworks she created while studying traditional Chinese painting tecniques. The work featured here is "Happy New Year" - a block print.
Just geting started can make you crazy. Help is available! The Learning Center can assist you in every stage of the writing process - overcoming writer's block, generating a thesis, organizing ideas, citing sources, or discovering how to detect grammatical errors. For a well written paper, you might want to schedule 2 to 3 sessions to work through different stages of the writing process.
So don't get frustrated when you have your next writing assignment...visit the Learning Center to see how you can schedule an appointment today.
You need to see this. There is a display of unique historical models outside the Learning Center. These projects were undertaken during the depression as a job stimulus package from Pres. Franklin Roosevelt. You won't believe the interesting things we have in the Ship Archives till you see them. For more information about this historic collection see - PA Museum Extension Project Display.
Did you stop by the Ask Us Anything Desk today? If you didn't, you missed the free M&Ms. Stop by tomorrow and ask a question. There may be some M&Ms left for you. We will definitely have some answers.
Landscape photographs by Librarian Doug Cook are currently on display in the Library's Main Floor Gallery. The exhibit features photos taken in nearby Michaux Forest, many on the Appalachian Trail. If you can't get out to hike today, seeing these photos could be the next best thing.
If you've never hiked in Michaux, you can find more photos and ideas for hikes at http://webspace.ship.edu/dlcook/. Or check with Dr Cook.
