Spring Issue of Hunter's Clarion

Hunter's Clarion, the library's newsletter, is available online.

In the lead story, Elizabeth Marcus, Undergraduate Experience Librarian, writes about library anxiety among first-year students and explains what Hunter is doing to alleviate it.

In other stories: 

Meet new library hires, our top student workers, the new Hunter Scholar, and next year’s One Book.

Find out why Special Collections has letters from Helen Keller and George Washington Carver.

Read some of the research questions asked of Hunter’s librarians—hard ones, weird ones, funny ones—all of them absolutely authentic and most of them completely unGoogleable!

Library will be open 24/7 for finals

Western Carolina University students who need a quiet place to study for final exams will find Hunter Library open 24 hours a day from 10:00a.m., Sunday, April 26th, until 6:00p.m., Friday, May 8th.
