Kindle Fire Winner
Thank you to everyone (312 of you) who participated in the Libraries’ recent Single Search survey. Nabil Murshed, a junior in computer science at CMU-Q, won the drawing for the Kindle Fire.
Associate Dean of Libraries Erika Linke presented the Kindle on April 24, during a previously-scheduled working visit to Doha.
In 2000,Dean of Libraries Gloriana St. Clair began to create a series of greeting cards that she used for informal correspondence with colleagues and donors. Modeled on ALA’s READ campaign, St. Clair’s cards and posters featured CMU trustees and administrators, deans, donors, faculty members and students with favorite books.
The current exhibit in Posner Center celebrates CMU READ and its many participants, with particular acknowledgment of St. Clair and President Cohon, both of whom will step down from their positions this summer.
