LEAD April Event
Have you been asked about the proposed presidential library at SMU?
Because we all have been asked about this Library, LEAD is sponsoring a Brown Bag lunch on Thursday, April 12 at noon in the CIP Conference Room for a discussion of articles that trace the history, development, current practices and challenges of presidential libraries. Joan Gosnell, DeGolyer’s University Archivist for SMU, will facilitate the discussion. Below are the following articles to read for the Brown Bag:

FRIENDS OF THE SMU LIBRARIES :
The Friends of the SMU Libraries/Colophon is pleased to announce that we will be able to award two library school scholarships this year in the amount of $1,000 each. We have also decreased the employment requirement from twelve months to six months of employment with the SMU libraries for scholarship eligibility.
The scholarship application with full details is attached. The deadline for submission is Wednesday, April 18, 2007. Please feel free to call or email me with any questions. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Grants Committee of the Friends will meet in mid-April to discuss distribution of funds to the SMU libraries. They will present their recommendations to the Friends board at the May board meeting.
Traditionally, grants are awarded to purchase materials and/or to fund services or projects that are not within the usual library operating budgets. Because of the successful fundraising associated with Tables of Content, we are able to offer a minimum of $30,000 for grants this year. Please note that we usually receive requests that total more than the funds we have available. Therefore, it is possible that some requests may not be granted or that some may be partially funded.
After discussions with your staff and supervisor, please submit your requests to me by Wednesday, April 18, 2007. Indicate the dollar amount of your proposal and submit the written requests through the Friends Office, Room 320, Fondren Library East or email your requests to me at email@example.com.
Thanks so much!

They were attended by the groom's children, Gloria, Derek and Peyton. The Gazebo was lovingly decorated by the bride's sister-in-law Molly Setnick and her mother CarolAnn Ramsour.
The Pipes in CIP
After experiencing some exhausting moments without working air-conditioning, we had an efficient, but not too attractive looking solution in order to circulate the air in CIP. The exhaust tubes were put into the ceiling to remove the warm air. Below the photos...
