Hope to see you there!
The Pride of Our Nation…Pride of College exhibit in Marvin Library Learning Commons, honoring our campus community veterans and active duty service men and women, has become a very special annual event on campus.
This year’s exhibit will run through Saturday, Dec. 7. If you haven’t yet seen the exhibit, don’t miss the opportunity to do so. For those of you who have visited the exhibit in previous years you will want to walk through it again to see the new additions to the collection. Please don’t forget to sign the comments book.
The exhibit includes photographs, personal stories and artifacts belonging to the families and to the veterans who served or are serving in the United States Armed Forces from the Civil War up to the current conflict in Afghanistan.

Field Elevations, a one-person exhibit of video, sound and photographs by Providence-based artist Ed Osborn will be on view Thursday, Oct. 21 through Saturday, Dec. 7 in the Teaching Gallery, located in the Administration Building.
Osborn will present an informal talk from 3 to 4 p.m. on Thursday in the Bulmer Telecommunications Center Auditorium, followed by a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Teaching Gallery.
Osborn’s videos, still imagery and sound works present quietly meditative images and environments awash in contrasts and contradictions. Slow, repetitive movements cycle throughout his video works without end or product, while the soundtracks offer diverging explorations. By electing to either unite the audio and visuals or to shift attention between these elements, the audience is able to stake out their own territory of experience. The works are meditative and beautiful, but Osborn’s subject matter ranges from the industrial to the banal.
Osborn was born in Helsinki, Finland and grew up in Philadelphia. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Wesleyan University and an MFA from Mills College. A 2012 artist-in-residence at EMPAC in Troy, Osborn has exhibited extensively with solo exhibits at Issue Project Room, NY; Catherine Clark Gallery, San Francisco, CA; Radio Brandenburg-Berlin Klanggalerie in Berlin, Germany and Artspace in Sydney, Australia, among others. He is an assistant professor of Visual Art at Brown University in Providence.
Monday, November 25, from 1 – 2 p.m.
Tuesday, December 3, from 1 – 2 p.m.

Course Files, What’s That? Intro to Working with Blackboard Course Files
Each Blackboard course/organization has an area called Files (Course Files), which stores any file that is attached, imported, inserted, etc. into a course. By understanding the course files area you can better manage your Blackboard course materials. Within the files area you can: organize files, upload one or many files at once, link to one file many times, overwrite files so changes are reflected within the course, link to one file from many courses, create HTML objects, and more.
This workshop covers the basics of working within the Course Files area and you will learn how:
- the Course Files area is set-up
- to create and edit folders
- to add files and overwrite existing files
- to link to files and folders
