The records of the New England chapter of the American Composers Forum (ACFNE) are now available for research in the Northeastern University Archives and Special Collections. The collection documents the role of ACFNE in promoting local composers and their music, and includes administrative records for the organization, as well as scores and recordings of original compositions. The collection also provides some interesting intersections with the Archives’ existing social justice collections. During the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, ACFNE’s Community Partners Program provided funding to place composers in diverse non-musical community settings in the Boston area, with the goal of integrating community participants in the making, playing and enjoyment of new music. Program participants in the Boston area included City Year, Casa Myrna Vasquez, and Inquilinos Boricuas en Acción. A flier for "Know the Ledge: An Expression of Afro-Caribbean Culture Through Hip-Hop," sponsored by Inquilinos Boricuas en Acción and ACFNE.
Snell Library is proud to welcome four new co-ops this semester: Marketing and Events Co-op: Emily Nehme My name is Emily Nehme and I am the Marketing and Events Co-op in Snell Library’s Communications Office. I will help to promote and organize events hosted by the library. I am currently a second year Business Administration major with a concentration in Marketing. I really enjoy traveling and have had the chance to visit and live in some amazing countries. I look forward to being a part of the library community! Graphic Design Co-op: Amanda Winfield My name is Amanda and I am a 3rd year Animation major with a double minor in Art and Interactive Media. My artistic interests are broad and I am always excited to acquire new knowledge regarding art & design. My hobbies include: painting, sewing, drawing, and occasional video gaming. Digital Media Commons Studios Co-op: Lucas LaScala My name is Russell and I am a third year digital art student in the animation program from New Hampshire. I started studying at Northeastern back in the Fall of 2010 as an engineering major. During my third semester in the engineering program I decided to take a year off to explore my passions. During that time I rediscovered art, which was a childhood passion of mine, and decided to leave the engineering college to pursue a career in animation. This is my first co-op. In my free time I enjoy composing songs on my computer, writing lyrics, playing video games, and binge watching television series on Netflix. Best of luck for a great co-op experience!
It's that time of year again... you're thinking about your syllabus for the spring semester! Linking to articles and e-book chapters on Blackboard is a great way to help your students save money on classpacks. It's also a good way to stay in compliance with copyright law. Check out our guide to help you find and create permalinks to articles and e-books in library databases - links that will persist over time and are best for including in an online reading list. We've recently updated our guide because creating permalinks is now so much easier - you can do it right within Scholar OneSearch!
