New Displays for the start of School!

Welcome to the 2015-16 school year! 

To get you all started this year we have FOUR new displays. 

The first one is from the Curriculum Collection about emotions - always in a heightened state as school begins, with a selection of books to help you think about them (we have copies of the bibliography on the shelf, come pick one up!)

The Second looks at pop musicians who have played Milwaukee over the years. The idea stems from a fairly new book by Larry Wyden called Milwaukee Rock & Roll and includes books and recordings from our collection with photos of the artists performing here in Milwaukee.

Third, we have a minimalist celebration of John Cage with a look at the 'score' to his piece Indeterminacy: 90 Stories 

And last, but not least, the Libraries' Exhibits Committee as installed a display in the cases in the grind that celebrate both Hispanic Heritage Month (15 Sept-15 Oct) and Classical Music Month (September) by hi-lighting Classical music by Hispanic composers that can be found in the UWM Music Library.

Thanks to Sarah Reynolds for the Emotions display, Sylvia Yang for the Milwaukee Rock & Indeterminacy displays, as well as Isabel Arenivar & Sylvia Yang for selecting and Ellis McLaughlin for installing the Hispanic Heritage display in The Grind.
