See it @ the library…

Rescuers:
For the next several weeks, the UNK community can view displays from PROOF: Media for Social Justice.  One of the displays is on the second floor of the library.  According to Proof’s website, the goal of the Rescuers Project with its photographs and narratives is threefold:
        –To heighten awareness and understanding of the presence of rescue behavior during genocide or mass violence;
        –To better understand the conditions that support compassionate behavior in the face of communal violence;
        –To encourage social healing, reconciliation, and the prevention of further cycles of violence in societies recovering from mass violence through the   
                   promotion of positive narratives.

MONA art:
The Museum of Nebraska Art highlights a specific artist regularly in the library.  This semester’s artist is John Falter, a native of Plattsmouth, NE, and best known for his cover paintings in The Saturday Evening Post.   The artwork is displayed on the main floor, at the entrance to the library and within the  Cafe.

Departmental posters:
For the last three years the Library has been show casing the work of UNK’s faculty, departments, and service units through a series of displays.  The displays are up for about a month during the school year.  You can view many past displays on the Library’s flickr page.   Current posters featured are from the departments of Geography & Earth Science and Computer Science & Information Systems.

Student research:
During the same period, over thirty students have had their research displayed in Library in the form of posters.  The posters are provided by the Office of Undergraduate Research and represent the broad range of research interests UNK students have; all have been previously exhibited at either the Fall or Spring Student Research Day.   Posters, two at a time, are up for about a month.  Currently, see posters by Jordan Heiliger/Dr. Longo and Jess T. Lammers/W. Wyatt Hoback.  You can view many of these posters  on the Library’s flickr page.

Gifts from China:
Chancellor Kristensen joined a delegation from the University of Nebraska at Kearney on a Recruitment and Development trip to China in the summer of 2011.  Some of the beautiful and unusual gifts he received from our Chinese counterparts and colleagues are on display on the first floor by the Cafe for all of the UNK community to enjoy.  Cities visited include:  Shanghai, Chengdu, Chongqing, Beijing, Weihai, Shenyang, and Shijiazhuang.
