We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.
Students in French 442 (Parisian World’s Fairs: 1855-1900), in collaboration with Gelardin New Media Library and with support from the Department of French, worked in groups with iPads from Gelardin to download L’Illustration’s app and to read issues from 1900, the year of Paris’s last nineteenth-century Universal Exposition. Incorporating text and image from the journal, students created videos using iMovie treating different aspects of the representation of the 1900 Exposition in L’Illustration.
