Upstairs on the 4th floor our stellar Library Technology Services staff have put together a display of DVDs that will make you leap out of your loafers, or crocs, or those toe shoe things. Anyway, they are SCARY (or funny, or scary and funny)! Stop up and grab one or more for the Halloween season!
Every Halloween, millions of Americans get in the spirit of the holiday by dressing up, decorating their homes and offices and telling scary stories. The EIU Philosophy department is joining the festivities with a discussion by a panel of philosophy professors on the existence of the Devil.
We thought we’d join the party and provide a few books, DVDs and reference resources on the topic. As you might imagine, there is a lot to choose from. We’ve only just scratched the surface.
The books and films listed below are available in Booth in various locations. Review the library catalog for details.

Friday, October 16, 2015 marks the twentieth anniversary of the Million Man March. On that date in 1995, nearly as many African-American men from across the United States convened on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., drawing attention to and demonstrating unity against the economic and social injustices faced by the African-American community.
Proposed by Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, the historic event was intended in part to counter media stereotypes by promoting a more positive image of African-American men. Attendees pledged personal responsibility for their roles within their families and society.
These images come from a collection of more than 900 photographs taken by Eugene B. Redmond, a poet, scholar, and professor at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (pictured above at the march with MC Hammer). The photos can be viewed online in the EBR Million Man March digital collection, which visually documents Redmond’s experience before, during, and after the event. The digital exhibition “Path to Visible Glory” features additional materials from the Redmond Collection (now housed at SIUE’s Lovejoy Library), including manuscripts, audio files, and ephemera.
In commemoration of the march, SIUE Library and Information Services has invited the public to contribute information about the event and those in attendance by adding tags to the digital collection. To participate, visit http://www.siue.edu/lovejoylibrary/tas/MMM_20th.htm. Tagging will be open through the end of November.
To learn more about the Million Man March, listed below are highlights from the Booth Library collection. Additional resources can be found via I-Share, our consortial partners providing EIU library users with access to more than 85 academic libraries across Illinois.

Guitar and keyboard players have new software and equipment options at Booth Library.
The library offers two Yamaha Clavinova digital pianos and two Dean Vendetta hardtail electric guitars for use inside the library’s music rehearsal rooms. The keyboards and guitars are connected to a computer, allowing users to record a rehearsal session for review or make a multi-track recording.
In addition to the instruments, advanced amplifier emulator software is available for guitars. Players can choose from 64 amplifiers, 77 cabinets and 113 effects.
Patrons are also welcome to bring their own guitar. Any guitar equipped with a standard quarter- inch input jack can be connected to the computer.
The library’s sheet music and CD collection is located on the fourth floor. Sheet music, instructional music books and CDs can be checked out, or patrons can try them out in a rehearsal room before they check them out for home use.
Those interested in starting to play guitar or piano are welcome to come in to the library to try either instrument. We have dozens of books on learning to play (guitar and piano) for the beginner and for advanced musicians. An electric guitar, headphone amplifier, and tuner may be checked out for four weeks.
Who knows? If you really like it you might change your major.
Check out a sample of what’s available to play on these new guitars! The books below are on display on the 4000 level.
Our display of books that have been made into movies has been so popular we made another one! There have probably been thousands of books made into movies over the course film history. That is a topic fit for entire books and encyclopedias. This list is strictly 2014-2016. As an added bonus, We’ve linked a list of the film release dates.
Special thanks go to our Booth student employee Katie Jenkins for her excellent work curating this display. Thanks Katie!
The Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality and Caitlyn Jenner‘s transformation have brought LGBT issues to the forefront of many news stories this year. A display in the 3000 level hallway of Booth curated by Professor and Reference Librarian David Bell features several books from our collection on LGBT history and fight for civil rights.
