The Educational Resources Center (ERC) has just received a new print-release station for its six public computers. Students use their print allocation, deducted from their WKU IDs to print. In previous years, the ERC had an older laser printer that finally bit the dust just after the Fall 2012 semester began. Print capabilities are a popular service for students, and thanks are due to Interim Libraries’ Dean Connie Foster, Library Public Services Head Dr. Brian Coutts, and Director of Academic Technology Dr. John Bowers and IT/AT teams for their quick installation of the new set-up.
On the evening of November 15, 2012, at Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Bowling Green, KY, WKU Libraries featured Professor Williams in its Far Away Places talk series. She talked about her book A Rare Titanic Family: The Caldwells’ Story of Survival and told the story of how her great uncle Albert Caldwell’s family were one of the few to survive the sinking of the Titanic. The event was concluded with book signing.

Wonder: The Lives of Anna and Harlan Hubbard
Anna and Harlan Hubbard led their lives as few people in modern times have – representing the pioneers of sustainability. Living in a house they built, sustained by food they raised or caught, supported by no electricity, the Hubbards, found their way without modern conveniences.
Morgan Atkinson, writer and producer of Wonder, lives in Louisville, KY, and has been recognized for his work documenting the philosopher/monk Thomas Merton, the writer/social activist John Howard Griffen and many more in the 25 years of his career.
This presentation by Mr. Atkinson will be a 20 minute preview of the new film Wonder first premiering in November. The narrative and art is from the Hubbard’s journals, and will be accompanied by excerpts from Wendell Berry’s book on their lives. Will Oldham and Katie Weible will be the voices of Harlan and Anna. Soundtrack by: Ray Lamontagne.
Please join us September 27th, 7:00pm at the Kentucky Building for this event. This will be a swipeable event.
