Green screen effects made easy at the TEC Lab!

Join us on Wednesday, November 2 from 11:00am-1:00pm or 6:00-8:00pm to see our green screen in action!  

All right, the green screen doesn't actually move, but you can use our iPads and an app to quickly replace the green with other video or still images to create amazing effects.  You'll learn how the process works, and have the chance to create a button, magnet, image, or short video showing off your special effects prowess.  

All are welcome to attend.  Come to the TEC Lab in Room 125 in the Gardner-Harvey Library.

Remember,  if you attend two or more of our TEC Lab workshops and speaker events in Fall 2016, you will be entered in a drawing for a Kindle Fire tablet.

New books and DVDs added to the Gardner-Harvey Library in September!

See our new materials list of items we added to the collection in September! We added 176 books, e-books, DVDs, and other items during that time, thanks to your selections and suggestions. The list is sorted by call number, with items grouped roughly by subject area.

Here are seven titles from the list, to give you an idea of what we've been buying:

  • Atlas obscura : an explorer's guide to the world's hidden wonders / Joshua Foer
  • Street marketing : the future of guerrilla marketing and buzz / Marcel Saucet
  • Nobody : casualties of America's war on the vulnerable, from Ferguson to Flint and beyond / Marc Lamont Hill
  • Buying a bride : an engaging history of mail‐order matches / Marcia A. Zug
  • Insecure majorities : Congress and the perpetual campaign / Frances E. Lee
  • The wonder : a novel / Emma Donoghue
  • Assistive technology / Emily C. Bouck
This tag will show you all of the prior lists of new materials, in reverse chronological order. We are eager to hear from you about individual items you would like us to buy, or types of items we should be on the lookout for, or general subject areas we should build up in the collection. Your input will help us keep the collection working well as add items in 2016/17!  We're looking forward to what you'll recommend next.

If you have a suggestion of something to order, please use our "Tell GHL to Buy It" form, email Amy Carmichael (, or drop by the library with your request. And pass your general suggestions or comments about the collection to us in those same ways.

Thanks again for keeping our collection vibrant and your information needs met!
