We are thrilled to announce that Thirty Treasures, Thirty Years has won two prestigious design awards for print publications! The book presents 30 items selected from the collections of Musselman Library. The stories and accompanying pictures feature rare books, manuscripts, paintings and collections relating to politics, theatre, history, art and College history. You can purchase a copy from the College Bookstore.
Above, Designer Emily Wass stands in front of one of the 30 treasures featured in the book, the Alexander von Humboldt secretary, and holds one of the awards. The publication won a silver CUPPIE from The Association of Communicators in Education and a bronze at the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District II Accolades Awards program.
Emily Wass is the College’s director of design services and truly did an amazing job with this publication. Her design skills made the “treasures” come alive. Thanks, Emily, for helping to represent some of the wonders of Musselman Library!

While we know you're all busy settling into the semester by printing your syllabi and first week's readings, there are a few small changes that took place over the winter break:
- We've added some additional furniture--including the chairs to the right. You can sit low to the ground or connect them to the low table to use them as a regular chair. Try them out and let us know what you think!
- Finding a power socket in a library these days is like trying to charge your phone at the airport -- a challenge. Check out the new power sockets on the ground floor. You can charge up your laptop, phone, etc. or connect to the network with a cable. (A good thing to do if you're watching streaming videos for class!)
