The Lilac Project is looking for participants in a study on student research activities. The purpose of the study is to determine the relationship between what students are taught about library and online research and how students actually conduct research.
Participants will complete a brief questionnaire and participate in a research exercise that will record them conducting research while talking about what they are doing and why. The study will only take about 20-30 minutes of your time and your participation will help us improve how students are taught research skills.
For more information, or to participate in the study, contact Dr. Katt Blackwell-Starnes at firstname.lastname@example.org. Click on the image for more details.

"Only The Ball Was White" looks back at the time when
major U.S. baseball leagues refused to hire black athletes. Using archival
footage, photographs, and interviews with former athletes, narrator Paul
Winfield recounts the number of unrecognized athletes, some of whom, such as
Jackie Robinson and Roy Campanella, were later hired by the leagues. To watch this video, check out Video Cassette #1667, Mary and John Gray Library 2nd floor, VHS format, 1980
