IMC Feature – Nina Simone

In 1999, VH1 debuted a five-hour television special, “The 100 Greatest Women of Rock & Roll“. An interesting facet of this survey was the latitude contemporary artists took in crediting women outside the genre for their impact and influence – Billie Holiday #6, Ella Fitzgerald #13, Bessie Smith #26. However, there was one most egregious and incongruous oversight – no mention of Eunice Kathleen Waymon, aka Nina Simone, The High Priestess of Soul, musical voice of the civil rights movement, piano virtuoso, and singer-songwriter of over 40 albums. In some ways, this trivial lapse mirrors a pattern that the iconic female tenor faced her entire life, beloved by critics and fans but never fully embraced by pop culture. For those unfamiliar with the music, life and times of Nina Simone, let the following resources be your guide. For long-time fans, revisit the classics and feel free to suggest additions to the collection!

Spring thesis desk lottery

Random numbers for the Senior thesis desk lottery will be drawn from the official 470 list. If you are a senior, but are not yet registered for 470, and want to be included in the drawing, please come to the circulation desk and have your name added to the lottery list by Monday, February 6th. Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Studio Art, and Psychology, majors are not eligible for thesis desks in the Library.

The list of numbers will be posted Tuesday, February 7th along with a map of thesis desk locations so that you can have preferences in mind before the actual selection.

The choosing of desks will begin at noon on Wednesday, February 8th in the library lobby. You, or your proxy, must be present when your name is called. Lottery numbers are not transferable.

NOTE: Some desks, as indicated on the map, will be shared. In order to help create the most pleasant sharing arrangement possible, the person with the better number may bring in as a partner another senior on the list who has a less desirable number. Please make those arrangements before the noon time selection and let us know that is your plan when your name is called.

IMC Feature – Happy Holidays!?

This holiday season IMC feature comes with help from guest annotator Robin Tovey ’97.  In addition to classics of the Christmas variety, the Reed College library has quite the collection of odds and ends, documenting the multifaceted holiday season.  Some of these are musical selections, which are housed in the PARC (the branch library in the Performing Arts Building).  As always, if you notice any glaring omissions from this list and wish to correct such an injustice, please email me your suggestions.  Enjoy!
