An event celebrating SJSU book authors, new databases for scholarly research, an information literacy skills symposium, the Affordable Learning Solutions initiative and upcoming events (including “Day of the Dead 2012: The Art of Remembrance” exhibit through Oct. 31 at the DiNapoli Gallery on the second floor) are among the many topics covered in the latest issue of King Library’s “Academic Gateway” newsletter. It’s oriented toward the faculty, but it’s a great resource for everyone. Check it out now [PDF].
RSVP by Nov. 1 if you would like to attend the SJSU authors event 3-5 p.m. Nov. 5 in King 225–229. The Office of the Provost, University Library and Spartan Bookstore are jointly hosting what they hope will become an annual celebration. Faculty and staff members who have recently published a book will be honored. Their work includes scholarly books, fiction and nonfiction, poetry, art and textbooks, anthologies and edited books.
