Ebrary Ebooks to be replaced with EBSCO Ebooks Subscription

On May 1st the Library's subscription to Ebrary's Ebooks will expire. We will be replacing it with the new EBSCO Ebooks Academic Collection . If you are currently using Ebrary's content in your research, please be aware that after May 1st we may not have access to those materials. There is considerable overlap between the two databases, so it is possible that EBSCO will contain the material you are using, but it is best to wrap up any research using Ebrary's material before the subscription ends.

Please contact the Library staff if you have any questions! Thank you.

Mark Lester's Provost's Forum Lecture is this Thursday!

Hello, everyone!

Mark your calendars for Thursday, April 24th at 11 AM to take your seats at the Norton Theatre! This is the perfect opportunity to hear from BSC's one-and-only Dr. Mark Lester, W. Michael Atchison Professor of History. He will give a lecture on his book called The Challenge of Biography: British Prime Minister H.H. Asquith (1852-1928) during a Provost's Forum. During his lecture, he will discuss the conclusions he has reached about Asquith in writing a full-scale biography of the British statesman, who served from 1908 to 1916. This is such an interesting topic, and it also counts as an EEIS credit!

'Jesus Christ Superstar' BSC Theatre Production

Come see the BSC Theatre's resurrection of  'Jesus Christ Superstar' -- the much-adored, one-of-a-kind rock musical that has captured the attention of audiences across the globe since 1971.This musical, which earned five Tony Award nominations in 1972 and another Tony Award nomination for "Best Revival of a Musical" in 2000, details the last week of Jesus' life in a post-apocalyptic future torn by military and religious polarization. Jesus offers this broken world a path toward redemption not rooted in restrictive law or violence.
