Did you know every April is National Poetry Month? Celebrate by reading some poetry. We have some great choices in the library and have a special poetry book display at the entrance of the library. Look for the National Poetry Month sign on the display!
This is an evidence-based nursing collection that includes videos, care plans and other content beyond journal articles.
This collection was acquired in part to replace Grangers. It includes the actual texts of poems, short stories, and plays as well audio recordings and videos of poetry and plays. There are also some “explications” of poems as well as ebooks relating to poetry, short stories, and drama.
The library has acquired access to five new databases from vendor Alexander Street. They cover a variety of disciplines and topics in the humanities and are available for your searching pleasure:
- African American Music Reference
- Anthropology Online
- Asian American Drama
- Latino Literature
- Underground & Independent Comics, Comix, & Graphic Novels
They can be accessed via the library’s list of databases, all of which help you locate articles, primary documents, news articles, images, and more for your research!
Furthermore, the library has also purchased dozens of new e-books, adding more titles to our ever-growing accumulation of e-books! Visit the library’s list of e-book collections to see what we have to offer (especially via the MyiLibrary and Project MUSE vendors).
Keep checking back to see what else we add over the summer to aid you in your research in the fall!
If you’re having difficulties accessing the databases or e-books, check out the library’s instructions on accessing electronic resources from home. If you’re still having trouble, don’t hesitate to ask a librarian!
The Enkindled Spring by D.H. Lawrence (1885–1930)
Spring as it comes bursts up in bonfires green,
Wild puffing of emerald trees, and flame-filled bushes,
Thorn-blossom lifting in wreaths of smoke between
Where the wood fumes up and the watery, flickering rushes.
I am amazed at this spring, this conflagration
Of green fires lit on the soil of the earth, this blaze
Of growing, and sparks that puff in wild gyration,
Faces of people streaming across my gaze.
And I, what fountain of fire am I among
This leaping combustion of spring? My spirit is tossed
About like a shadow buffeted in the throng
Of flames, a shadow that’s gone astray, and is lost.
