The fall 2013 issue of Library Focus, the newsletter of University Libraries, is now available. This issue features an article on Dr. B's Book Club, the virtual book reading group begun by Southern Miss President Rodney Bennett earlier this year, and University Libraries' participation in and support for the book club.
Other articles provide information on the well-attended Civil War 150 Lecture Series and the related exhibits, Science Café, art exhibits at Gulf Coast Library, an increased social media presence for libraries and collections, successful grants and new services (live chat and virtual reference). The regular feature, Spotlight on…, introduces Stephen Haller, curator of historical manuscripts and archives; other articles highlight the selection of Jennifer Brannock, curator of rare books and Mississippiana, to participate in the Mississippi Library Leadership Institution and the accomplishments of librarians.
