Rally supports troops Nov. 8

What is your favorite library resource? How has the library helped you or someone you know? Have you had a chance to see the 50th Anniversary exhibit, or the library's permanent art collection? On Tuesday, November 19, the Columbus State Library will compile statistics, patron comments, photographs, and other details representing a typical day at the library. The results collected and pictures taken will be added to the Ohio Library Snapshot Day 2013 Flickr group to raise awareness about the important role of libraries in Ohio.
All Columbus State students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to stop by the Columbus Campus Library, or the Delaware Campus Learning Center, to share their thoughts and stories, and be a part of this important day. If you can’t make it to campus on November 19, feel free to visit the library's Facebook page and post why the library is important to you!

Join the Departments of Disability Services and the Humanities when they present a lecture titled “Joice Heth and Jim Crow: The Dual Stigma of Race and Disability in Antebellum America,” Wednesday, November 20, at 2:00 p.m. in Franklin Hall 110.
The presentation will be made by Dea Boster, Ph.D., instructor in the Humanities, who will discuss the layers of meaning that were ascribed to race and disability in nineteenth-century United States. As the notoriety of Joice Heth and Jim Crow spread throughout the nation, so did discussions and portrayals of disabled slaves. Many nineteenth-century writings associated physical and mental disabilities with weakness and dependence, immorality, dishonor, and the grotesque, and these associations influenced the “dual stigma” of race and disability. The lecture is free and open to the public.
