Photoreport from our 8th Annual Edible Book Festival

Once again Ivy Tech Library made books come to life through amazing creativity and delicious foods. Our 8th Annual Edible Book Festival was an absolute success, entertaining spectators and participants alike. Some pictures made it to the Metro section cover page of the Journal Gazette! Colors, delicious foods, fantastic ideas, smiles and conversations were flowing in the hallways of the Student Life Center for more than three hours. 31 participants included Ivy Tech students and staff, as well as outside businesses and colleges. Have a look at the festivities in the slideshow below. Remember, Ivy Tech library is your on-campus home – for help and resources, a place to rest,  and even entertainment and occasional food is provided free of charge and with a lot of love and care! So next time you pass by the Library, come in and see for yourself. And we hope to see you next year for our Edible Book Festival!

Edible Book Festival 2014 is coming!

Tell me About it!

The Edible Book Festival is an annual event that unites bibliophiles, book artists, and food lovers across the world.  Participants show off their culinary creativity by creating an edible book- a dish based on a book or a pun of a book title. These are put on display and then consumed by festival attendants. Ivy Tech Library’s festival is free and open to Ivy Tech students, employees, and the general public—so invite a friend! The first Edible Book Festival was created by Judith A. Hoffberg and Beatrice Coron in 2000, and  has since been celebrated by libraries, bookstores, and other book lovers in over a dozen countries.

When & Where Will It Be?

Research Review Sessions

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,
