Celebrate International Education Week
International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is an effort to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States. The dates for IEW 2015 are November 16-20, 2015.
UMD is celebrating by highlighting all international related events taking place on and off campus.
We invite you to take part in any of the events listed on this page:
First Floor Interior Displays
November Is National Career Development Month
UMD Career & Internship Services put together this display of career-related library materials to recognize National Career Development Month.
The theme of the month is "Foster Well-Being through Meaningful Work," with several career events on the campus schedule.
Grant Writing Resources
Two students enrolled in a Writing Studies course with Associate Professor David Beard have gathered materials to help in the grant writing process. All library items are available for checkout. Ask for assistance at the Circulation desk.
Caps, Caps for Sale
An exhibit featuring the Michael S. Berman Political Collection is in the table-case in the Kathryn A. Martin Library lobby.
Content includes a selection of caps from the 1988 to 2000 presidential campaigns.
People have always worn hats. To protect from weather, to keep warm, to look fashionable, or to add a few inches of height to their frames. Today, we also use them to persuade and to advertise our point of view—as in politics.
The Michael S. Berman Political Collection is part of Martin Library's Archives and Special Collections. Berman, a longtime Democrat and UMD alumnus (class of 1961), held a number of roles in presidential politics after he completed law school.
Fourth Floor Display
Ramseyer-Northern Bible Society Collection
UMD's Kathryn A. Martin Library Special Collections department invites you to view an exhibit from the Ramseyer Northern Bible Society Collection.
The Qur'an: Three Volumes from the Ramseyer Collection
This exhibit showcases three Qur'an volumes as a follow-up to last year's five-part "Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys" reading and discussion series sponsored by the Library. UMD Professor Nik Hassan led some of the programs, and he generously supplied a personal statement about the Qur'an and its centrality to his way of life for this exhibit.
