Starting tonight and continuing for the rest of the week, we will keep the A-Level lobby and study lounge and the scholar studies open 24 hours for your round-the-clock studiers. Access will continue to be through the Main level entrance. The Main and upper levels of the building will be locked. We realize that users may have computing needs beyond what is available on the A-Level. The CIT recommends the Lord/Saunders, Burton, and Kade labs, all of which are regularly open 24 hours.

Library Hosts Traveling Exhibit from U.S. Holocaust Museum

From now until November 3 the library is hosting Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933-1945, a traveling exhibit from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

"Between 1933 and 1945, Nazi Germany sought domination over Europe and, in what is now called the Holocaust, the total annihilation of Europe's Jews. As part of its effort to create a "master Aryan race," the Nazi government persecuted other groups, including Germany's homosexual men. Believing them to be carriers of a "degeneracy" that threatened the nation's "disciplined masculinity" and hindered population growth, the Nazi state incarcerated in prisons and concentration camps tens of thousands of men as a means of terrorizing German homosexuals into social conformity. Through reproductions of some 250 historic photographs and documents, Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933–1945 examines the rationale, means, and impact of the Nazi regime's attempt to eradicate homosexuality that left thousands dead and shattered the lives of many more."

These is also an online exhibit.
