You’ve Got Mail: New Books In Graduate Services In June

You can say that four books is not a lot to get in a month. But what if two of those books were collections of letters? Would you still say that? I mean imagine how much mail this would be if each one of the letters in these two books arrived at your door. You’d think you were a teen pop star, or at least some sad public figure who survived a tragedy and ended up on a day time television talk show. Either way lots of mail would be coming your way and you would probably have your own mail room section at the local post office. That’s the way I like to think about these four books: two books plus the condensed intensity of years of mail service. Enjoy.

So, take the Re-Envisioning The UC Berkeley Library online survey. The survey can be found on the Re-Envisioning The UC Berkeley Library webpage. The undergraduate version should take about 5 minutes; the other versions are likely to take around 10 to 15 minutes. The survey closes on May 31, 2012. Let Your mouse clicks be heard!

It’s The Season Of The Shark: Summer Hours in Graduate Services

It’s time for fun and sun. It’s summer break unless you have to go to summer school. Then its just summer. Even though there are not any summer graduate courses in the Humanities and Social Sciences, we understand graduate students don’t need no stinking classes to get there study on. And with this in mind, we are still open, but with limited hours. Until the first week of July that is. Then Graduate Services goes back to its normal semester hours you are used to.

Now, let’s cut to the chase: From May 13th through July 1st, Graduate Services will be open from 10am to 6pm Monday through Thrusday and 10am to 5pm on Friday. Saturday and Sunday we will be closed. July 2nd to August 10th Graduate Services will return to its normal semester hours: 9am to 9pm Monday through Thursday, 9am to 5pm on Friday, and 1pm to 9pm on Sunday. Saturdays we are always closed.

And that brings us up to the Fall 2012 semester and the beginning of a whole new academic year.

If you really want to cut to the chase and avoid everything I said above, check out the hours for Graduate Services online.

Februready Or Not, Here We Come: New Books In Graduate Services In February

Like almost always, some great books made it to the Graduate Services shelves in February. And being February, the month of the valentine, why not come down and be a part of the letters of T.S. Elliot, Langston Hughes, and Gertrude Stein. You’re the reader, they are the writers, and with a little imagination these letters could be their valentines to you. Strike up a bond and in the process be woohooed. No need to limit yourself to books of letters though, jump on into any book here in Graduate Services and be a part of the February experience. Because like a valentine given needs a valentine given back to really be a worthwhile valentine, books need readers to really be worth their weight in dead treeness. Enjoy.

The Emperor’s New Year’s Clothes Rack: New Books In Graduate Services In January

The New Year brought resolutions to some of you, while it also brought new books to Graduate Services for some of you to use. What’s more, these books have a shelf life longer than most resolutions, as they are usually much harder to break. I mean, just look around Graduate Services. You don’t see many broken books lying around do you. There might be books about breaks, gaps, and various lacunae. But not many broken books. No, not very many broken books at all. And speaking of books, some good ones arrived while most students were still enjoying their winter break. The Baudrillard Dictionary came in holding hands with the new revised Deleuze Dictionary, and both were being escorted by a few new Foucault books. Poor little Les Annees d’Hiver, 1980-1985 by Felix Guattari followed hurriedly behind in his ill fitting English attire wondering what that damn Deleuze Dictionary had to say about him. Books by Alain Badiou, Jean-Luc Nancy, and Jacques Ranciere strutted along in their au naturel French laughing a laugh no one could understand, while the volumes of animal poems by Ted Hughes ran wild around Allen Ginsberg’s If Not Forever: A Letter to Jack Kerouac, which Wendell Berry’s WIndow Poems pleaded with to be a bit more transparent as an animal poem nudged his nose between his pages. Yes, it was a crazy January here in Graduate Services and many other books had a good time too. Too many to talk about them all right now though. Let’s just say The Empire of Signs might or might not have played a part in The Original Accident. Oh, and by the way, the Foucault books seemed to really like their ill fitting attire. Enjoy.
