While many look forward at the start of a new decade, it’s important to take a moment to look back as well. Progress doesn’t always seem obvious until you compare and contrast the past and the present. As you look forward to the next assignment, exam, or even to graduation, don’t forget to look back and congratulate yourself on how far you’ve come. Whether your new goals involve tutoring, research, or technical support, please feel free to stop by the Lemieux Library and explore the many services available. Here’s to a new decade!



Beyond the Library


"The Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons is known to be a place of research, reading, and writing.  However, I have discovered a lighter side to this scholarly environment.  While working in the Circulation Department for little over a decade, I’ve observed library life from a more humorous perspective.  Hence, I created the library cartoon: “Le Muse”.

After my night shift of checking in and out books, or juggling books in the library stacks, I try to draw for a couple of hours- unless distracted by Dublin the dachshund.  Fortunately, I am a night owl!  I especially love creating illustrated maps.  These maps are usually accompanied with a bit of regional trivia. Of course, the library is a valuable resource for all this information!

I hope that these whimsical cartoons will provide a nice “study break” between finding that perfect journal article and finishing up the latest assignment."
