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 Lakeland Library Staff!
Title: Circulation Assistant
Fun Fact: Olivia was a student at Lakeland before transferring to JCU.
Title: Interlibrary Loan Specialist
Fun Fact: Jennifer loves everything and anything that allows her to be creative. Painting, crafting, and photography are just a few of her hobbies when she's not chasing around a two year old. She's even had food photography published in several cookbooks.
The Library Archive Project has been established to digitize selected college documents, making them accessible to students, faculty, staff and future generations. Fragile historic pieces have been digitally preserved and made available for online access and research. Check out digitized Lakeland class catalogs from the archive! Can't find the year you need? Contact Reference at 440-525-7425 or email email@example.com
The library has added two large print keyboards to our student desktops. One is located near the circulation desk and the other is across from the reference desk at our wheelchair accessible computer station. Please stop at the circulation desk if you need assistance related to accessibility.
Can I check out a magazine?
Yes! Serials, aka magazines, can be checked out of Lakeland's Library. Maybe you need an article from Scientific American or you want to browse through an issue of Sports Illustrated, just take the magazine to the circulation desk and we will check it out to you.
Can't find what you are looking for? Try Interlibrary Loan for an article or book needed for your research. Contact a reference librarian at 440.525.7425 to begin the Interlibrary Loan process.
Some things never change, other things never stop changing. For the first time since the pandemic started, Lakeland Library will be fully open to the campus and community. So, welcome back, indeed! We have made a lot of changes over the last year and a half. In this edition of the Lakeland Library Newsletter, you will find out about the library’s new hours, new employees, new books, new services, and new resources. What has not changed is our commitment to serving the information needs of Lakeland students, faculty, and staff. We hope to see you in the library soon!
Thomas Hyland, Library Program Chair
Over the summer months, Lakeland Library participated in the college's Welcome Days, welcoming new and returning students, along with their family members. The library provided information on reference and instruction services, textbook reserves and library hours. The library will continue Welcome Days from August 23 - September 10. During that time, students are invited to find the library on the third floor of C-building and receive a free giveaway! Phone 440.525-7424 for more information.

Read: "The Ornatrix"
by Kate Howard
Summary: "Kate Howard’s stunning novel is painted against a vivid historical landscape with themes and characters relevant today, tackling issues of belonging, female identity, and the perception of beauty." ~Publisher
Online Book Discussion Group
When: Tuesday, August 31 at 12PM
by Connie Schultz
Summary: “While Schultz’s compelling narrative and realistic characters will keep readers turning pages into the night, her eye and ear for real-life details set this novel apart from other domestic sagas. Part tragic love story, part powerful testament to shifting cultural norms and the evolution of the women’s movement, The Daughters of Erietown is an impressive first novel with a big heart.” ~BookPage
