INSTRUCTORS, PLEASE NOTE – New E-Reserves Procedure for Summer & Fall 2017
After the Spring 2017 semester, the Library will be moving to a new LMS (Library Management System) called ALMA. The current e-reserves system, ONCORES, is not compatible with ALMA, so there will be some changes. Library Reserves will continue to offer digitization and accessibility processing and provide files to the requesting instructor, but the ONCORES site will no longer function. The instructor can then post files to Canvas or share via Google apps.
Follow this link for information on linking readings to your Canvas course: ONCORES to ALMA Resource.

Shahid Buttar
Electronic Frontier Foundation, Access Humboldt, and the Humboldt State University Library are collaborating with local media outlets this month to explore the frontiers of surveillance, privacy and free speech during a series of Sunshine Week events in Arcata and Eureka from March 16-21.
Shahid Buttar from the Electronic Frontier Foundation will be the keynote speaker for a forum on “Surveillance, Privacy and Free Speech” at the HSU Library on Monday, March 20, from 4:30-7:00 p.m. Shahid Buttar is the director of grassroots advocacy at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the event will feature practical workshops on topics including Web Browser Privacy Settings, Smartphone Encryption, Virtual Private Networking, Encryption and Security, Digital Rights Management and more.
Buttar graduated from Stanford Law School in 2003 and became immersed in the movement to stop the war in Iraq. He is a constitutional lawyer “focused on the intersection of community organizing and policy reform as a lever to shift legal norms, with roots in communities across the country resisting mass surveillance.”
From 2009 to 2015, he led the Bill of Rights Defense Committee as executive director, and he has also championed causes including campaign finance reform, marriage equality for same-sex couples, and combatting racial and religious profiling of Muslims.
Outside of work, Buttar also “DJs and produces electronic music, writes poetry and prose, kicks rhymes, organizes guerilla poetry insurgencies, plays capoeira, speaks truth to power on Truthout, occasionally elucidates legal scholarship, and documents counter-cultural activism for the Burning Man Journal.”

Transformation & Healing Workshop
Dr. Lilia Chavez will lead this workshop to help recognize yours and your students strengths, gifts, and talents and utilize your talents to empower yourself. The workshop will be in the Library Fishbowl from 2:30-6:30 on Thursday, March 9.
Monday, March 6, 2017 to Thursday, March 9, 2017

White Privilege
Join us for an ongoing discussion Thursday at Noon in the Fishbowl.  This is part of a series of discussions that are intended to inform people about the issues surrounding whiteness (white privilege, white fragility, white spaces, etc.) and to bring up questions and challenge us about our role in our communities and in our day-to-day lives.
These discussions are uncomfortable and challenging by design- beware of triggers and emotionally-charged content. However, you are encouraged to get uncomfortable. By engaging in these honest discussions you will exercise your 'racial stamina' and become more comfortable with being uncomfortable.
