We are always so proud of the excellent students work here in McIntyre Library. They have excellent dedication and provide great service to their fellow students. All of the rest of the staff look upon their graduation with some sadness that they will be leaving us but with great happiness for their many accomplishments as students.
This semester we have decided that we need to recognize their scholarly accomplishments in a tangible way. We have begun a tradition of dedicating a book to each of our graduating student staff as a way of thanking them for their service and recognizing their educational achievement. Each will have their name placed on a bookplate in a book related to their area of study. This semester we had five graduates.
They are very busy people so we were only able to find a time when two of them could come and get their pictures taken with their books. Pictured are Jessica Leigh Crandall with her book, Ocean, an illustrated atlas, and Dominic Thomas Slauson with his book, Good video games + good learning : collected essays on video games, learning, and literacy. Our other graduating students and their books are:
Nicole Lynn Kriener, Carlos is gonna get it .
Anne Betz, Books a memoir.
Talia Celeste Steuding, Abuelos.
Thank you for working with us and good luck with your future plans!
Everyone at McIntyre Library.

The exhibit will be displayed in the Instructional Media Center on the lower level of McIntyre Library in observance of the American Library Association's Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read.
Banned Books Week (Sept. 27-Oct. 4) is observed during the last week of September each year. Observed since 1982, this annual event reminds Americans not to take democratic freedom for granted.
The exhibit, which will be on display through Dec. 19, was developed by the Long Island Coalition Against Censorship. Through narratives and illustrations, it chronicles incidents of censorship dating back to the 19th century, as well as frequently challenged books and creative works. Included are descriptions of the censorship of "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," "In the Night Kitchen," "The Catcher in the Rye," "The Color Purple," the novels of Judy Blume and Chris Crutcher, and most recently, the 2007 Newbery Prize winning novel "The Higher Power of Lucky" by Susan Patron.
Information on U.S. Supreme Court and lower court decisions is an integral part of the exhibit, including efforts to censor the popular Harry Potter children's books (Harry Potter books were burned in Alamagordo, N.M.) and the 2003 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court upholding the Children's Internet Protection Act.
For more information, contact Kati Tvaruzka, education reference librarian, at 715-836-4522 or email@example.com.

Alinder's presentation will begin at 5:15 p.m. Oct. 10 in Phillips Recital Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center at UW-Eau Claire. The event is free and open to the public.
Alinder will speak about her research on photographic images of Japanese American internment camps during World War II. She will address problems that museum curators and historians face when incorporating these photographs in exhibitions and other public history venues. Exploring the tension between photographs depicting smiling Japanese Americans and contemporary historians' understanding of the incarceration, she will address the implications of keeping these problematic images confined to the archives and out of the public eye.
Co-coordinator of UW-Milwaukee's public history specialization, Alinder focuses her research on the history of photography. Her first book, "Moving Images: Photography and Japanese American Incarceration," will be published in February 2009 by the University of Illinois Press. Currently she is undertaking a new research project on photography and the law. Last year she organized a community conference on Milwaukee civil rights and is working on launching an educational Web site on the topic.
The lecture, which will be held in conjunction with Wisconsin Archives Month, is sponsored by the UW-Eau Claire McIntyre Library, the department of history, and the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs.
