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.
Lakeland Library is designing a new space for students! Can you guess its purpose? Stay tuned for more information...coming in Fall 2022!
Generously supported by Lakeland's Rise and Thrive grant
September includes Banned Books Week so I want to mention some periodicals that provide information on books. Lakeland Library subscribes to Library Journal, The Horn Book Magazine and The New York Review of Books. Each of these periodicals provides reviews of books and articles on authors. Of course there are more magazines that contain book reviews than just the three I mentioned. For information on these resources and more, contact Reference at 440-525-7425 or email email@example.com .
What is OhioLink? The OhioLink consortium allows you to borrow items from 117 other libraries and colleges throughout Ohio. If we don't have item here at Lakeland you may order the item from another school at no charge. Please allow a minimum of 7 business days for items to arrive.
To place a request:
Wait for the email letting you know it's available for pickup
If you need help or can't find the item you're looking for just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Instructors, need a digital research guide for your students? Lakeland Librarians can build research guides that are tailored to specific assignments, classes, subjects, and events. Librarians can incorporate assignment instructions, research resources (databases, books, websites, videos), search tips, and many more items into research guides. Check out the example guides below and email email@example.com for requests or questions.
Is your organization interested in collaborating with Lakeland Library on a display? Is there interest in using our display case in the library?
Please let us know if you have any ideas or other thoughts and we will see what may be possible.

It’s great to see the campus so active again after the shutdowns of the pandemic and the languor of summer. Students are already visiting the library to check out textbooks on Reserve or find a serene place to steal a moment or two for reflection. We look forward to supporting Lakeland’s students throughout the academic year as they face the challenges and rigors of college. This newsletter describes a few of the many ways we provide support to students throughout the year: acquiring books and other materials to support the curriculum, teaching information literacy skills to classes and one-on-one to students, designing guides to help students complete research assignments, and promoting and providing space for self-care. Stop by the library to talk with one of Lakeland’s librarians if you’d like to find out more about how we can help you and your students have a great semester!

Read: "This Time Next Year We'll Be Laughing: A Memoir" by Jacqueline Winspear
Summary: "“A beautifully rendered, elegant work of literary architecture joining the present to the past. Jacqueline Winspear's memoir of an English country childhood is also an homage to the remarkable parents whose choices and outlooks shaped her. Their stories of hardship and gratitude became hers, and hers became this unforgettable book.”
—Hope Edelman, New York Times bestselling author

Read: "Go Tell It On the Mountain" by James Baldwin
Summary: "Go Tell It On The Mountain" was James Baldwin's first major work, based in part on his own childhood in Harlem. Baldwin chronicles a fourteen-year-old boy's discovery of the terms of his identity as the stepson of the minister of a Pentecostal storefront church in Harlem. Baldwin's rendering of his protagonist's spiritual, sexual, and moral struggle toward self-invention opened new possibilities in the American language and in the way Americans understood themselves"-- Provided by the publisher
