Many faculty and staff members at Ivy Tech Northeast are currently working on their own college degrees. Next week the Ivy Tech Northeast Library will be holding two “Research Review Sessions” specifically tailored for our faculty and staff. It will be more than just reviewing database searching, presenting resources available outside of our library. Think of it as a refresher on the research practices that you already know and an opportunity to learn about tools or resources available to make your degree work easier. We would like to invite you to one of our first two Research Review Sessions:
- Thursday, February 13th at the Coliseum Campus Library at 3:30pm-5pm
- Friday, February 14th at the Coliseum Campus Library at 9am-10am
If you have any questions about these review sessions, you may call or email Librarian Ward Price at 480-2033, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you noticed the eye-catching displays in the Library? Have you ever stopped to appreciate the brilliant 3-D window scenes in the hallway? Allow us to introduce you to the creator of these amazing decorations – part-time Library Clerk, Monique Myers. Come and check out Monique’s most recent display in the Library: Blind Date with the Book, dedicated to the upcoming Valentine’s Day. Books on Monique’s display are wrapped in paper, so you don’t know anything about it, just the genre. Pick a “single” book looking for a companion without knowing its title and, who knows, you may discover your new love!
My job title is Circulation Clerk, which involves checking materials out to students and staff, and manning the circulation desk, assisting students needing help with library resources. I also discharge the returned materials and I am in charge of the displays and bulletin boards in and around the library.
los Muertos being my favorite.

Produced and directed by Emmy award-winning filmmakers, Joe and Harry Gantz, American Winter is a documentary feature film that follows the personal stories of families struggling in the aftermath of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Years after the recession began, millions of families are struggling to meet their basic needs, and many formerly middle class families are finding themselves in financial crisis, and needing assistance for the first time in their lives. Meanwhile, the social safety net that was created to help people in difficult times has been weakened by massive budget cuts, creating a perfect storm of greater need and fewer resources to help families in trouble. Filmed over the course of one winter in Portland, Oregon, American Winter presents an intimate and emotionally evocative snapshot of the state of our economy as it is playing out in many American families.

Bankruptcy attorney Elias targets the estimated two million American homeowners who are currently in default on their mortgages. Elias explains how foreclosure works, what options there may be for keeping a home when in default, and what to do when that is not possible. He includes instruction on negotiating a workout with a lender as well as chapters on how to use bankruptcy to avoid foreclosure. Elias’s section on fighting foreclosure in the courts helps readers understand the circumstances in which they may be able to delay or stop a foreclosure action. The appendixes provide summaries of each state’s foreclosure laws, a glossary, and information on finding and working with lawyers and bankruptcy petition preparers. Straightforward and timely, this is recommended for most public libraries. ( Library Journal )
