...that the Hammermill Library purchases and subscribes to new books on a regular basis? If you think that academic libraries don’t purchase books anymore, think again. While most college and university libraries may not purchase as many "tangible" books as they used to, relying more and more on eBooks, most libraries continue to purchase books and will always purchase titles suggested by students and faculty. An easy way to see what’s new at the Hammermill Library is to access the library homepage and browse the New Titles scroll bar. Happy Reading!!!!

This month's Work Study of the Month is actually a Graduate Employee of the Month. Kora Dueno is a graduate student studying Forensic Anthropology, having come to Erie all the way from Arvada, Colorado. To her, the best aspect of working at the Hammermill Library is meeting all the students who ask for help and learning what their majors might be and about what projects they are working on. In general Kora enjoys helping people and interacting with them. At home she has two cats named Loki and Dean. After graduation, she hopes to become a medical legal death investigator.
