Banned Books Week is just around the corner!
This years theme is Comics and Graphic Novels. Not sure what the difference is between a Comic or a Graphic Novel? We can teach you! Stop in to the SAU Library and check out our display on how to tell Comic Books, Comic Strips and Graphic Novels apart. Once you’ve done that, stick around for our displays on Banned Graphic Novels, the Anatomy of a Comic, and Comics From Around the World!

Check back here in the next week for news on contests and events to help us celebrate Banned Books, Comics and Graphic Novels!
Before the Month is out, don’t forget to nominate a student for
The SAU Library Student Worker of the Month
Please help us to identify a student worker who best represent the SAU Library and its mission. A student who possess qualities such as friendly attitude, reliability, detail oriented work and helpfulness were repeated by staff and students.
If you have noticed these attributes, or have had specific incident of great service from a student worker, please fill out one of the Student Worker of the Month Nomination forms located at the Circulation Desk.
All nominations will be reviewed and our Student Worker of the Month will be selected at the beginning of October.
However, to keep standards high, a student will be selected only when the nomination criteria are met or exceeded.
We hope this will continue to be a great way to reward those who best represent the SAU Library, contributing to a better work environment and a welcoming place for patrons.
Collections Clam is here to welcome all incoming freshmen! Did you know that freshmen had to wear beanies such as these? Beanies were used to identify the freshmen so upperclassmen could welcome them to campus or “haze” them.
When St. Ambrose went coed in 1969, female freshmen were also made to wear beanies. However, some of the guys used the hazing custom to harass the female students. At that point President Rogalski worked to discontinue the customs of wearing beanies and hazing freshmen.

7:45am – Midnight
