Meet Your Librarians!

Sure, we have a world-class career center, tons of internship opportunities, and some of the most industry-connected faculty you'll ever find, but there's yet another often overlooked job-finding resource here at LIM: our librarians! Our librarians (the older folks you always see in the library, sometimes even teaching your classes), are a great resource for job-seekers. We can help you learn about what different positions may entail, we can connect you with job postings, and we can provide you with essential information about a possible employer before your interview. This kind of advance research sets candidates apart from the crowd and it's proven that employees are more likely to hire candidates who've done some advance research. Sure, come browse our DVD's and cram away for that insane WebPDM project that's due in ten minutes, but also come say hi and seek us out when it comes time for your job hunt.

Bigger is Better

Summer is quickly winding down so to get you back into that school mode I wanted to offer up some good reads that will ease us all back into the upcoming school year.  Our oversized book selection here at the Adrian G. Marcuse Library is spectacular and houses some amazing books. These books have a lot of pictures and large font making them easy on the brain, but at the same time teaching you about some incredible (and fashionable) topics.


To help you out I’ve given you some of my personal favorites!



Domestic Art: Curated Interiors by Holly Moore shows the best and chicest interiors around the world. If you love interior design like I do then this book is a must! The pictures and places are breathtaking, dare to dream and skim the pages.


Skin Art; 391.65 FOL

I have always been fascinated by tattoos and piercings and their historical significance as well as today’s perceptions. Skin Art by Philippe di Folco visually draws you in while teaching you all you need to know.  I suggest you find a comfortable spot in the library and enjoy the read!
