Lakeland Library Newsletter: April 2024

Find all of your latest Library news here!


Welcome to the Lakeland Library Newsletter!  Each month, we will showcase classes, events, and other fun and interesting facts about the Library and our staff. We will also keep you informed of new resources and services that are designed to assist you in your course work, and personal and professional lives. 

New Books

Check out these new books, available in our library!

  • Stop by the Library, on the third floor of C-Building, C-3051, to browse some of our great new resources!
  • Can't make it to the Library? Check out the entire list of new materials.

E-Resources Update

Need more scholarly resources? Check out our research databases!

Did you know Lakeland Library subscribes to over 90 databases? Some databases are resource specific, focusing on academic research articles, e-books, or educational videos. Other databases are subject specific and focus on an area of research, like nursing. Check out our complete A-Z databases list for more resources for your end of semester research projects!

Have a Laugh

Why are libraries the tallest buildings in the world?

Because they have so many stories!

What did the librarian say to the person checking out 50 books? 

Don’t overdue it.

What did one librarian say to another?

Sorry I can’t hang out. My weekend is fully booked.

Get ready for finals!

Did you know?

Ever wonder what the library does behind the scenes?

Lakeland Library's newsletter is made possible through a collaboration between members of multiple sub-departments in the library. Since everyone can login to the platform, library staff and faculty can work on the project each month at the same time. Once all content is added for the month, the newsletter goes through a brief editorial process to ensure quality information gets delivered to you. We would like to recognize Maria Armijo who adds the colorful graphics and Brian Hanna who adds interesting pictures of our book and activity displays each month. 

The newsletter will be taking a short break this summer, but we will return with fun and informative issues in Fall 2024. Remember, the library will be open all summer, so stop by!
