New York Times [AND] Dictionary of American Regional English now available online

Two popular resources are now available online through McIntyre Library. The New York Times, including book reviews, editorial cartoons and advertisements, is searchable from 1851 to the present. The Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE), exploring regional language differences and etymologies, will let you get to the bottom of the soda vs pop debate. The online version includes interactive maps and audio recordings. Both resources can be found via the Find a Database link on the McIntyre website, by title or by topic.

Exhibit on Nazi Resistance Movement in McIntyre Library

McIntyre Library is proud to be hosting the White Rose traveling exhibit (Feb. 3-19, 2014) which recounts the actions of the famous non-violent student resistance movement in Nazi Germany.  These students distributed leaflets calling for the overthrow of Hitler and his government.  After being discovered, the core members (six young students and one professor) were executed by the Nazi terror regime.

On Thursday, February 6 at 6:30 pm, there will be an opening reception which will include brief introductory remarks by Dr. Carter Smith, chair of the Department of Languages, and a 30 minute lecture “Resistance Movement: Lessons from the Nazi Past” by Dr. Teresa Sanislo, professor of History.  Light refreshments will be served and the public is welcome to attend.

To visit the exhibit, go to McIntyre Library's 2nd floor Breezeway (L2022). It is open for public viewing all hours that the library building is open.
