"On the night in April 2015 that Baltimore went up in flames, Carla D. Hayden, the city’s chief librarian, was under pressure to board up a neighborhood library branch and wait out the violence...But she had other ideas."
Carla D. Hayden, sworn in to oversee the library’s 162 million items, is the first African-American and the first woman to hold the position.

Dr. Hayden, who was sworn in yesterday, is the first African American and first woman to lead the Library of Congress. She is also the first professional librarian (she holds a Ph.D. in library science from the University of Chicago) to lead the institution since 1974.

Expanding on the spare Biblical narrative to bring King David to life in Iron Age Israel, Brooks traces the arc of his journey from shepherd to soldier, from hero to betrayer, from beloved king to murderous despot, and into his remorseful old age. We see David through the eyes of those who love him or fear him—from the prophet Natan, voice of his conscience, to his wives Mikhal, Avigail, and Batsheva, and finally to Solomon, the late-born son who redeems his old age.

WHAT’S NEW AT THE LIBRARY
 
If you thought that One Search™ was a great discovery tool, wait until you try Summon™.  Summon™ is accessed from the Library Home Page. We just rolled it out and are still tweaking it, so we would love your input. Contact us at  librarians@regent.edu. 
 
Summon gives you the power to search nearly all of the Library’s print and online resources at once, including items such as:
Print and electronic books
Scholarly journals
Magazines and newspapers
Dissertations and theses
Streaming videos
Open access collections
Summon’s filters and limiters allow you to search millions of items on your topic and zero in on the most relevant books, articles, and videos in the Library’s collections. Summon is a great place to begin any research project because it searches easy-to-overlook databases and e-book collections.
 
Please visit the Link, our Library blog, for further information about Summon™. (http://librarylink.regent.edu/?p=3027)
