- Open Books Reading List for Spring 2015
Open Books will meet Friday, February 13, at noon in the Library. We will be discussing Jill Lepores's book Book of Ages: The Life and Times of Jane Franklin. From one of our most accomplished and widely admired historians, a revelatory portrait of Benjamin Franklin;s youngest sister and a history of history itself. Like her brother, Jane Franklin was a pssionate reader, a gifted writer, and an astonishingly shrewd communicator. Unlike him, she was a mother of twelve.
The IU Southeast Library is happy to announce that we now provide access to Loeb Classical Library
Founded by James Loeb in 1911, the mission of the Loeb Classical Library has always been to make Classical Greek and Latin literature accessible to the broadest range of readers. The digital Loeb Classical Library extends this mission into the twenty-first century. Harvard University Press is honored to renew James Loeb’s vision of accessibility, and presents an interconnected, fully searchable, perpetually growing, virtual library of all that is important in Greek and Latin literature. Epic and lyric poetry; tragedy and comedy; history, travel, philosophy, and oratory; the great medical writers and mathematicians; those Church Fathers who made particular use of pagan culture—in short, our entire Greek and Latin Classical heritage is represented here with up-to-date texts and accurate English translations. More than 520 volumes of Latin, Greek, and English texts are available in a modern and elegant interface, allowing readers to browse, search, bookmark, annotate, and share content with ease.
The Library will be CLOSED on Monday January 19 in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Regular hours will resume on Tuesday January 20.
