Your Professors Are Between the Covers!

-- of a good book, we mean! Match faculty members with books that they've recently read for fun and you could win a $100 shopping spree to Barnes & Noble (or Walmart) - just in time for Christmas!

You can ask each professor up to three yes-or-no questions about his or her book (except identifying information such as author, title, year, publisher, etc.) to help you make your choices. When you're ready to make your choices, click on the link below. Only one entry per person.

Entry form    If you have any problems accessing the form please email us.

(If you get any security messages, click "Allow" or "Add exception." We apologize for the inconvenience.)

Contest is limited to currently registered students. Entries must be received by 8 a.m. on Thursday, December 4, 2014.

The student who makes the most correct matches wins. In case of a two-way tie each winner will receive a $50 shopping spree. In case of a three-way (or more) tie, one winner will be randomly selected. Winners agree to have their name and picture used in QEP publicity.

Questions? Contact Arleen Fields, QEP Director.

Here are the professors and books (NOT matched yet!):

Get Between the Covers!

Looking for a good book to read for fun?

Our beloved and well-frequented Novel Brew Cafe is no more, but you can always grab a cuppa Starbucks in Berns or Trustees' and find yourself a quiet reading nook anywhere in the library you'd like. Most of our QEP books (popular novels) have been integrated into the call numbers 813.54, 813.6, 823.914, and 823.912 in the main collection. They have red fiction stickers to help them stand out from those oh-so-important but sometimes less-than-exciting classics of literature.

Comics!!! I mean, Graphic Novels!!!

Our graphic novels and comics still have their own space - on the movable shelving unit facing the Bell Tower. Check 'em out for great illustrations combined with compelling stories.
