Events at the Library and Movie Notice

Langsdale Library would like to make you aware of a couple of fantastic events coming up. This is a bit of a short notice, but for those of you checking the blog between now and 12:30 p.m., there is a Lunch and Learn with Carol Molinari from the school of Health and Human Services at 12:30 p.m. in Langsdale Library Room #319 today (Thursday, November 20th, 2014). For those of you who do not know, that is the room to your right just as you are entering the library.

This lunch and learn promises to be fantastic, as Carol Molinari will discuss a study that she conducted with students in UB’s Healthcare Management program on the effects of a structured mindfulness meditation exercise on online learning. 

More details about the event are here.

Carol Molinari’s biography is here:

Did you miss Carol’s lecture today? You can still support the library. If you are tired, stressed, or pulling an all-nighter, come to the first floor of Langsdale Library (third floor of the Learning Commons) during finals week. We will be providing FREE coffee and hot chocolate to students on Monday, December 1st-Thursday, December 4th from 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m. More details about the event are here.

Don’t drink coffee or hot chocolate? Are the lectures too poorly timed for you? Langsdale Library still has services for you. If you are a movie buff, we would like to make you aware of a new movie we have on shelf:

Obvious Child-Are you having romantic or professional problems? Are you still figuring out your love life or career path? Do you need cheering up for some other reason? Are Jenny Slate and Jake Lacy among your favorite actors? Do you just love a good comedy? If you said yes to any of the above, Obvious Child is the perfect movie for you. It is about a Brooklyn comedian who has a one-night stand and ends up pregnant on the worst Valentine’s Day of her life after getting dumped and fired. After all this happens, she has to face independent adulthood for the first time in her life. Feel free to check it out after Monday, November 24th, when I will be done with it. A more detailed description of the movie is here:
