The Long Walk to Freedom
" 12 ordinary people from different racial and economic backgrounds came to accomplish deeds which changed the face of the nation. Together with tens of thousands of other Americans they joined the Civil Rights Movement to protest racial inequality, segregation, and discrimination in the 1960s.The film demonstrates that the struggle of civil rights, justice, and equality is indeed a long walk - an ongoing challenge requiring the participation of successive generations. It shows how ordinary people can get involved in social change."

February One
"February One tells the inspiring story of four remarkable young men who initiated the lunch counter sit-ins in Greensboro, NC on February 1, 1960. Based largely on first hand accounts and rare archival footage, the film documents one volatile winter in Greensboro that not only challenged public accommodation customs and law in North Carolina, but served as a blueprint for the wave of non-violent civil rights protests that swept across the South and the nation throughout the 1960's."
Social Injustice: Your Turn To Act, an exhibit on student activism, will be on display in the Main Library, 1st floor West, January 9 through February 29.

Technology in Higher Education: The Future is Now
Wednesday, November 16th, 7:00 pm
Main Library, Room W449 (4th Floor, West Wing)

Free pizza! New York Times giveaways!

E-Books and E-Readers instead of paper textbooks. Course management systems and social media instead of face-to-face group projects. How is new technology affecting your education? Does it make your life easier or just add new stresses? It’s a whole new world out there, and it changes constantly.

Join us for an engaging, open-ended discussion with W. Patrick Dickson, MSU Professor of Educational Psychology, whose research focuses on human development and multimedia learning environments.

This seminar is inspired by the following paper: Schwartz, A. (2011, October 19).
Out with textbooks, in with laptops at one Indiana school district. New York Times, p.A 17. Retrieved November 7, 2011, from

The New York Times is brought to you in print by ASMSU’s Student Readership Program, and electronically by Michigan State University Libraries.

Michigan State University Libraries support the University's mission of preservation, creation, transmission and application of knowledge.
 Michigan State University Libraries are committed to the pursuit of excellence through diversity and pluralism. The Libraries are a partner in the multifaceted activities related to the University's mission, providing access to resources to serve the educational needs of the students, faculty and staff of MSU, the citizens of Michigan, and the University's national and international clientele. We accomplish this mission through broad, relevant and accessible collections, appropriate facilities and quality service by helpful and expert staff using current technologies, collaborative strategies, and expanding information networks. The Libraries advance the philosophy that a library is more than a collection of information and a knowledgeable staff; it is an essential facility where emerging and established scholars access information and gather in an atmosphere conducive to learning and other creative endeavors.
