The Library’s Spring 2015 24/7 schedule will begin:
Wednesday, April 22, 2015
We will open on Tuesday, April 21st at 7 AM and will not close until Saturday, May 2nd at 11 PM.
Learn how to download and read FGCU’s eBooks at a walk-in workshop on March 18 from 1-2 pm in Library Room 211. We will look at a couple of the major eBook providers and hopefully ease your fears about using them. Many eBook titles can be downloaded for offline reading which often makes them easier to read on your computer or mobile device (yes, you can download some books to your phone!). Bring your laptops, phones or tablets and get set up during the session.
Registration requested but not required. Contact Anna Carlin (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.
Congratulations to Dr. Kevin A. Aho, our 23rd honoree in the FGCU Author Series of recently published books authored or edited by FGCU faculty and staff. Dr. Aho’s book Existentialism: An Introduction will be featured on the Library website during the month of March and displayed on a poster on the first floor of Library West in the FGCU Authors and New Books area.
Dr. Aho is a Professor in the Department of Communication and Philosophy, where he teaches 19th and 20th Century European Philosophy, Heidegger, Existentialism and Phenomenology. He holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of South Florida and has authored three books, one edited work, and numerous articles and book chapters. Dr. Aho’s other books are available for checkout at the FGCU Library: Heidegger’s Neglect of the Body, Body Matters: A Phenomenology of Sickness, Disease, and Illness, and Dostoevsky, Notes from the Underground.
Each month a recent book authored by FGCU staff or faculty is selected and placed on display with an accompanying poster on the first floor of Library West in the FGCU Authors and New Books area. The author and book are also featured on the Library’s website, news blog, and Facebook page. FGCU faculty and staff are encouraged to notify the relevant subject specialist if they publish a book.
