Preventing hunger was the focus of the Libraries sixth ScholarSip event as Mariana Chilton, Ph.D. presented on her research and work with the Center for Hunger Free-Communities. Through the center’s Witnesses to Hunger program, Chilton has worked with women in numerous communities to collect photographs documenting hunger and poverty in Philadelphia, Boston, Camden, Pennsylvania, and Baltimore.
Construction work will begin in mid-June on the lower level of W. W. Hagerty Library. The work will, at times, include a significant amount of noise and disruption to activities in rooms L13A, L13C and L14. The majority of work with loud equipment will occur during break week. The work will last for approximately one month.
The lower level will remain open during construction, but may be noisy at times. Facilities will work to minimize the disruption. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The space, Research Connections, is located on the second floor of the library and offers comfortable and mobile chairs, a white board, a projector and a phone with conferencing capabilities.
The Libraries is actively changing the face of its staff with recruitment efforts underway for ten positions over the past month. No new positions have been added to the staff. Instead the positions are carefully redefined jobs to address vacancies and meet numerous factors of change.
