That’s right, it’s Party Time at the Music Library again.

Wednesday, September 7th from 3pm-6pm, The Katzen Music Library will be hosting their second open house! Stop by for a few minutes to snack on some refreshments, chat with their friendly staff, and learn more about the Music Library’s holdings and services.

If you’re a new student at AU, or if you’re a returning student that’s never made it over there, this is the perfect opportunity to check out what they can do for you, and to enjoy some cookies while you’re at it.

If you’re a regular at the Music Library, consider bringing some friends to introduce them to this valuable campus resource.

The Music Library is located in the Katzen Arts Center, Room 150.

Hope to see you there!

The video essay Chaos Cinema, administered by Indiewire’s journalistic blog PRESS PLAY, examines the extreme aesthetic principles of 21st century action films. These films operate on techniques that, while derived from classical cinema, threaten to shatter the established continuity formula. Chaos reigns in image and sound. Part 1 contrasts traditional action films with chaotic ones and takes a close look at the “sound” track, especially its use in car chases.

Lynda.com – + new features, – confusing interface

For a number of years, Lynda.com‘s online tutorials have been AU’s primary resource for software training.

For a number of years, Lynda.com‘s online tutorials have been AU’s primary resource for software training. These excellent online training tutorials offer thousands of hours of instruction for AU faculty, students and staff. AU has a multi-year license to provide these, free of charge, to the AU community, whether they are on campus or off.

Recently Lynda.com changed their interface as they introduced their Lynda Campus product. The good new is that for the first time this lets users track which videos they have watched, bookmark videos to review later, and save certificates of completion when they finish tutorials.

Unfortunately, to do this Lynda.com makes it mandatory for users to create a personal login before they can go to the tutorials. Poor design makes it look like a user is signing up for an individual account with Lynda.com. Don’t worry, once you create a login, you will still have access through your AU affiliation and there will be no charge.

For information about accessing Lynda.com, you can search ALADIN for Title = Lynda.com.
