We Have Fun Reading Too!


Now that final exams are almost over, don't forget to take a little time to relax and have fun over the holiday interim.  The Tarleton Libraries can help with that too!   

We offer videos and movies you can watch, audiobooks for listening while you are on the road, and leisure books to read.  All of these are available in both physical and electronic formats for you to enjoy. 

You can search the library catalog to find DVDs, CD, and books that are fun, casual, leisure items.  One of the best avenues for finding these materials in digital format is to use one of our databases - OverDrive.  OverDrive is a pet project of mine :)

Can’t find what you want to read?  We would LOVE LOVE LOVE for you to submit title recommendations!   You can do that via OverDrive at https://tamus.overdrive.com/account/lists/recommendations.   Additionally, when you search OverDrive for a title, if no matches are found, it displays book covers that you can click on to recommend for purchase.  You can also submit title recommendations via the library website at http://tarleton.wufoo.com/forms/m1lgbv6n18gqf6t/. This recommendation form is best for requesting print/physical items.

Enjoy the holiday break, and have a very Merry Christmas!

Bill of Rights Day

December is the month we celebrate a very important holiday. You guessed it, Bill of Rights Day is on December 15th! The Bill of Rights are the first 10 amendments to the US Constitution. They were ratified on December 15th, 1791. President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed the first Bill of Rights day in 1941. These amendments guarantee our rights to speech, religion, bear arms, trial by jury, protection from unreasonable search and seizure, and more. 
James Madison (who would later become the 4th President of the United States)
was the primary author of the Bill of Rights in the House of Representatives in 1789.

Christmas Tree Lighting and Overnight Study hours

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We are now at that time of the year that after Thanksgiving passes time flies by and the semester is over before we know it!

This evening at 6:00 p.m. was the annual Christmas Tree and campus lighting. The tree looks extra beautiful this year with multi-colored lights. The Purple Poo even made an appearance to celebrate.






    Next week on Thursday, December 7th. finals begins. The Dick Smith Library will be begin our overnight study hours.

    The way overnight study works is, at 11pm we will play the overnight CD over the intercom, explaining that our overnight study hours will begin at midnight and anyone that is staying in the library after midnight will need to come to the front to sign in. At midnight, a police officer and staff member will be at a table in the lobby helping sign people in and give them stickers. If people decide to leave the library and not come back, they will need to sign out. If they are only leaving for a few hours and coming back later, they will not have to sign out and can just show us their sticker when they return. Usually we are open to the public along with students, however after midnight on these days (Dec 7, 8, 8, 10, 11, 12) only Tarleton students will be allowed. Students will need their Texan Card to sign in, if they do not have their Texan Card, they will need to have their drivers license to verify at the circulation desk that they are a Tarleton student. If you do not have a photo ID you will not be able to stay.

        During finals week, all study rooms become first come, first serve. Therefore, students will not be able to reserve any study rooms during this time. Each floor will be labeled to help you find an appropriate place to study. The upper level will be your best bet for a quiet place. The quiet zones upstairs are located in the very back by the group study rooms and the study rooms located by the right wall.

If you have any questions about where the best places to find a quiet place to study, please do not hesitate to ask! Good Luck on your finals!

World War I and America: Three Events


Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into World War I, the Dick Smith Library honors those who fought and shares American experiences with three events:

WWI Film Night: A Soldier’s Experience, is tonight, Thursday, November 9, at 7 p.m., in Room 107 of the Nursing Building on the Stephenville campus.  The film, All Quiet on the Western Front, based on the book by Erich Maria Remarque, will be shown and snacks will be provided.  The 1930 film highlights the ordinary soldier’s experience and provides a realistic and harrowing account of World War I.  Free popcorn and drinks will be provided.

A ceremony to honor all veterans will take place on Friday, November 10, at 10 a.m. at the Military Memorial near the Howell Education Building.  Artificial red poppies (a symbol of remembrance since WWI ended in 1918) donated by the Texas VFW Auxiliary, will be distributed, along with coffee and donuts.

A discussion panel of scholars will look at American experiences of World War I at noon on Friday, November 10, in Business Building, Room 177.  A free lunch from Big O's will be provided.

Panelists and their topics are:
• Dr. Marcy Tanter, Tarleton, professor of English—Participation and experience of women in the war;
• Dr. Mattie Fitch, Tarleton, assistant professor of history—French portrayal and perceptions of Americans fighting in Europe; and
• Dr. Kenyon Zimmer, University of Texas at Arlington, associate professor of history—wartime and post-war civil liberty violations of citizens and immigrants.

These programs are part of World War I and America, a two-year national initiative of the Library of America presented in partnership with The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and other organizations, with a generous grant from The National Endowment for the Humanities that was awarded to the Dick Smith Library.

Native American Heritage Month

November is Native American Heritage Month. This is the time to recognize the experiences and contributions of the first Americans. Beginning in 1986, November 23-30 was designated "American Indian Week." In 1990, it was elevated to a month long recognition. November was chosen to coincide with the end of the traditional harvest season and Thanksgiving.

Native American population by county. 
According to the 2010 Census there were 5,220,579 people of American Indian or Alaskan Native heritage residing in the US that year. That is 1.7% of the total population and a 26.7% increase since the 2000 census.

Timeline of Native American History

Dates listed before 1492 are estimates, and shouldn't be considered exact. 

15,000 BC - Ancestors of Native Americans migrated from Asia to North America via the Beringia land bridge during the last ice age. In recent decades archaeological and DNA research has found evidence that:
  • humans may have arrived in the Americas thousands of years before 15,000 BC, 
  • they may have come by boat as well as overland, and
  • some may have arrived via a European route.
Many Native Americans do not accept the Beringia Strait Theory as most Native American tribal origin stories, passed down orally for generations, do not provide evidence for such a journey.
