Faculty - Add the Library to Your Class!

Faculty, as you are putting the final touches on your syllabi and class preparations, don't forget to add  the Library to your class! We have lot's of tools, widgets and gadgets to help make using the Library's resources easy for you and your students.

Schedule your class for a Library Instruction Session or recommend that your students sign up for one of the Monday or Tuesday 11:30 am to 12:00 pm or 12:00 to 12:30 pm Library tours.

Provide your students with direct links to articles, ebooks, and streaming audio and video clips right in your Moodle or OASIS class.

Make resources available to your class by placing them on electronic or print reserve.

Add a library widget to your Moodle course page that will link your students directly to subject/course specific research help.

Find out about these and other services that are available for faculty and students by clicking on the Services Tab on the Library's Home Page.

Last minute summer fun

Wait! Wait! There’s still time…

Follow my lead and start the semester toned, tightened and blissed out!

If you’re an East Sider, get yourself to Millennium Park (Michigan Avenue at Randolph) on Saturday mornings.

Here’s the last of the FREE summer class schedule:

August 4 – September 1

  • 7 am: Tai Chi, Taoist Tai Chi Society of the USA
  • 8 am: Yoga 312 with Amy Cronk & Joshua Wentz
  • 9 am: Pilates, Chicago Park District
  • 10 am: Zumba, Leslye Jones-Beatty

Music during yoga and pilates, by Joshua Wentz

And then, you deserve a break. Go straight out to the lake front for the Chicago Air and Water Show!

Then on Sunday, go west! From State and Roosevelt Road, that is. Go west until you reach Des Plaines Street. Turn north (that should be to your right) and you’ll be at the entrance to the Maxwell Street Market for Fitness Sundays.

There are quite a few Fitness Sundays still to be enjoyed… free lessons plus time to practice what you’ve learned. The party continues through September 16th!
Do them all...
  • 9 am: Kickboxing
  • 10:30 am: Zumba
  • 12:00 pm (noon): Salsa
  • 1:30 pm: Bollywood

See you there, Party animals!!!

Wait! Wait!...there's more...

Free movies in the park!

  • August 18th, "Despicable Me" - Cottontail Park, 44 W. 15th St.

The summer's not over yet. Go out and enjoy!
