Your Student @ Lamont

first_imgWoodcut images of flowers from Harvard-Yenching library, a 1920s-era catcher’s mask (a late-19th century innovation developed at Harvard), and a letter written by John Hancock to his sister – parents of Harvard freshmen got to see all these and more as part of “Your Student @ Lamont,” an interactive event which highlighted the array of collections and experiences the libraries offer to first-year students.Organized by Harvard College Library’s Services for Academic Programs (SAP) unit as part of the annual Freshman Parents’ Weekend, the event offered parents a hands-on introduction to Lamont and the handful of other libraries where their children are likely to spend most of their time, and illustrated how library services, resources, and people come together to support undergraduate education.“The goal was to make this a more interactive event for parents,” said Susan Gilroy, librarian for undergraduate programs for writing, who coordinated the event with administrative coordinators Lynn Sayers from Lamont and Mikel Kearns from Widener. “We were able to make the libraries come alive more powerfully. With this new model, parents have the opportunity to experience the libraries, and see the materials their children could actually be using.”Following tours of Lamont, parents were invited to the Collaborative Learning Space on Level B, where other HCL libraries – Cabot, Houghton, Harvard-Yenching, Loeb Music, Fine Arts, and Tozzer – had items on display highlighting their collections, services, and resources. Staff from each of the participating libraries were available at their respective tables to provide parents with information about their library’s collections and services. In addition to woodcut prints from Harvard-Yenching, parents were able to view online exhibitions from Houghton Library and facsimiles of historical maps showing Cambridge, England, and Cambridge, Massachusetts, from the Harvard Map Collection. The Harvard University Archives displayed pictures of undergraduates from various eras and a summer “coat” that students wore in the 19th century, along with other items.Since expository writing classes are the one place students are guaranteed to encounter “research” in their first year, it was particularly enlightening for parents to be able to talk with Tom Jehn, Sosland Professor of the Harvard College Writing Program, about the resources students are able to call on in the libraries. Librarians from HCL and Writing Program staff have collaborated to develop a curriculum designed to help freshmen navigate the physical and online resources of Harvard’s libraries.At Widener, staff also offered tours to parents of freshmen. Hundreds gathered to walk through the Atkins Reference Room, Loker and Phillips reading rooms, and library stacks. The Gutenberg Bible on display in the Harry Elkins Widener Memorial Room drew a large crowd to the Widener rotunda.Parents Ron and Kathy Berg said the event illustrated the impressive resources available to their daughter, Jolie.“I’m impressed with the resources Harvard [College Library] has, and with the number of librarians that are taking part today,” said Ron Berg. “I didn’t know some of these libraries existed. I’m blown away by the number of resources, and I have complete confidence [my daughter] will use her time here very well.”last_img read more

A new step forward towards the realization of a tourist zone at the Pula Hydrobase

first_imgThe initial value of the annual fee for the establishment of construction rights is set at 2,3 million kuna, and will be revalued after 3 years from the start of payment of the fee. The deadline for the construction of the tourist zone is set at 5 years. The plan is to turn Hidrobaza into a new catering and tourist center with three zones. The first zone would have a capacity of 800 beds categorized with at least 4 stars, the second capacity of 400 beds with a minimum of 4 stars and the third would be intended for recreational facilities. The public invitation will be published on the websites of the Ministry of State Property, the Ministry of Tourism, the Ministry of the Economy, Entrepreneurship and Crafts, the City of Pula and the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, as well as in high-circulation Croatian dailies. Location Hidrobaza is located in the extreme northwestern part of the city of Pula, and southeast of the Brijuni Islands. With good connections to local and county roads (“Istrian Y”), it is 7 km away from Pula Airport This Decision is determined by the “Urban Development Plan Štinjan”, and it determines the manner and procedure of disposal as well as the initial fee, conditions and criteria for selection of bidders, conditions and deadlines for construction and appoints a Commission for evaluation of bids. At the last session, the Government announced the Decision on initiating the procedure of disposing of real estate for the purpose of the construction of a tourist zone in the area of ​​the Hydrobase in the City of Pula. Recall, in November last year, the signing of “Agreement on determining the conditions, rights and obligations for the implementation of catering and tourism projects Muzil, Hidrobaza and Saccorgiana” In order to collect bids for the purpose of construction of the tourist zone Hidrobaza, a public tender will be conducted by announcing a public call for binding bids. The most favorable bidder is obliged to build buildings in the area of ​​almost 282 thousand square meters, the purpose of which is to offer a catering and tourist offer. By concluding a contract with the bidder, the right to build for 50 years will be established. Find out more about the Hydrobase location HERElast_img read more

Men’s soccer: Badgers return home for non-conference matchup against St. Louis

first_imgAfter suffering their first Big Ten loss on the road last weekend, the Wisconsin men’s soccer team returns home looking to rebound against a struggling St. Louis University Tuesday night.The matchup against St. Louis hits home for much of a squad that has four players originally from St. Louis, Missouri, including junior forward Tom Barlow.Barlow looks to continue his success against his hometown team after scoring the winning goal in the 105th minute last year to topple the Billikens. Also from St. Louis are junior forwards Mark Segbers and redshirt junior Nick Jones. Segbers has two goals in all six games this season while Jones has made an appearance in two games and recorded 26 minutes of play.On the other side of the field, the Badgers defense will look to contain the explosive offense of St. Louis, led by sophomore Anthony Brown. Brown is tied for most points on the squad with a goal and and two assists in the still-young season, alongside redshirt sophomore Grant Owens.Wisconsin’s leader in points, junior Christopher Mueller, has already notched two goals and a pair of assists through the team’s first five games this season. This kind of success on offense highlights a major improvement from last season for Mueller, who scored only three goals in the Badgers’ 2015 campaign.Men’s soccer: Badgers come from behind to defeat Northwestern 2-1 in OTThe University of Wisconsin men’s soccer team continued its hot start Wednesday night in Evanston, Illinois after the Badgers bested Northwestern Read…St. Louis comes to Madison in the middle of rough patch, winless in the last five games. Since SLU’s first win against Wake Forest Aug. 26, the Billikens have lost twice and posted three 1-1 ties, including their most recent battle with Virginia Commonwealth University this past Saturday.A key for the Badgers in this matchup will be their defense with only a single shutout at this point this season. Fortunately for Wisconsin, St. Louis has been off to a slow start offensively this season with three scoreless games and no multiple-goal matches this year.Coming off a double overtime loss has consequences for any team, but if the Badgers play a smart game and can capitalize on mistakes, they should be able to secure a win and regain some momentum before returning to Big Ten conference play.last_img read more
