Adrian G. Marcuse Library Closed Over Labor Day Weekend

The Adrian G. Marcuse Library & LIM College will be closed Friday, September 4 & Monday, September 7 for Labor Day. We will re-open at 7:30am on Tuesday, September 8. 

We hope everyone has a relaxing and safe holiday weekend!

The New and Improved Library

Welcome to the Fall 2015 semester! Hopefully you are adjusting to being back into the swing of school and are finding your way around LIM College. If you find yourself around the library this semester, stop by to see some of our new features. 
First, we have set up great new seating in the magazine room. The chairs and tables are on wheels so they are light and easy to move. If you are working on a project in a big group, feel free to move them together. If you are working individually, you can do that too. If you remember the heavy chairs from last semester, this is a big improvement! If you come within the next few weeks, be sure to check out the September issues of all your favorite magazines. 

Additionally, we have a new scanner in the first computer lab. It is much easier to use than our previous scanner. You can even email documents straight to your account, upload them to a USB drive or download them on your phone. You also don’t have to take up an extra computer when using the scanner since everything can be done using this new device.
Of course, we have new material including a book titled, The Fifty Fashion Designers That Changed the World by Lauren Cochrane. 

Stop by soon and check out all of these new features of the library!

Couture Wedding Gowns

Recently, while shelving new books, I came across a brand new reference book entitled, Couture Wedding Gowns by Marie Bariller. This publication immediately caught my eye. What girl doesn’t like to fantasize about her dream wedding? While some may ponder tulle vs. lace more than others, almost every girl must admit that they love looking at wedding gowns.

As I flipped through the book, I was thoroughly impressed by its variety of styles and the designers it featured. Couture Wedding Gowns includes designers from Alexander McQueen to Coco Chanel to Vivienne Westwood. While most of the designs are extremely eccentric, they are still fun to look at. I found myself getting lost in the glossy pages of this publication. The book, also, features biographies on the designers featured.
After enjoying Couture Wedding Gowns so much, I decided to search the library catalog to see what other books we have on wedding gowns. I found that we have a plethora of options. Publications include, The Wedding Dress by Maria McBride-Mellinger, An Event to Remember: Designing Spectacular Occasions by Sibal Jerry and Vera Wang on Weddings by the queen of wedding dresses herself, Vera Wang.

If you are ever looking for something to do in between classes and love immersing yourself in all things wedding, stop by the library and check out some of our publications.
