Teaching Students Beyond LMU
By Raymundo Andrade

Over the summer, the William H. Hannon Library partnered with the LMU School of Education to offer research assistance and provide an introduction to college library services for two of the School's residency programs: the Undergraduate Research Scholars Academy (URSA) and the Upward Bound Summer Seminar. Programming Librarian Ray Andrade worked alongside faculty from each LMU college to teach and mentor three cohorts of URSA students from local community colleges. These students conducted research on current social issues and presented potential solutions at the conclusion of their ten-day residency. 

For the Upward Bound Summer Seminar, Ray introduced thirteen students (pictured above) from Westchester Enriched Sciences Magnets to library services. He taught them how to locate, evaluate, and use resources to successfully complete their summer project: i.e. to examine and profile their top two choices for potential universities to attend. The students will present their findings at the conclusion of a four-week residency.

Meet the Parents (of the Class of 2020)

LMU Librarians are an integrated part of Summer Orientation for the incoming class of 2020. If you participated in the festivities, you probably met Librarians Ray Andrade and John Jackson (who couldn't resist the opportunity to get a selfie) and Library Student Ambassador Lauren Brown, who gave a series of presentations about library services to both students and parents. When you finally get to campus in August, stop by and say hello!
