Thank you to all our participants and voters! The winner of the Halloween treat bag raffle is Sarah Rice. Please visit the Library service desk to claim your prize.


2011 Pumpkin Decorating Contest

Come to the Library and check out the decorated pumpkins on display in the first floor case. Then vote for your favorite! Ballots are available at the Library Service Desk.

This year in addition to entries from the Library and our academic partners in the building, we have entries from some divisions representing the Leadership Team of the College. Rumor has it that one VP of the College issued quite a challenge to the other Leadership Team members. We’ll have to keep an eye on them so they don’t stuff the ballot box!

Voting is open all this week. We will announce the winner on Halloween. Everyone who votes will be entered into a drawing for a Halloween goodie bag.

Come to the Library and vote for your favorite!!


Try out our new website!

The Library has a new website! All the functionality of the old site is being updated to a super-friendly design.

In the past year the Library has gathered input from faculty, staff and students on how to improve our online presence and your experience using our website. This is the result of all the great feedback from the Wheelock community.

However, your participation in the update of the Library’s website is not done! We’re perfectionists and we need your help to continue to work out kinks. During the Fall semester our new site will remain in beta to give the Wheelock community the opportunity to help us make a more perfect website. At any point during the semester, click on the banner across the top of our current homepage or the link below and peruse the beta site. Keep an eye out for things that don’t work , things that confuse you, or things you think we should change or add. Then let us know what you think by filling out the feedback form (link at top of page) or contacting your favorite Librarian.

We will officially release the website January 2012 after we’ve had a chance to digest all of your great suggestions and to celebrate the New Year!
