Apr. 7 crime and detective fiction talk and Apr. 8 homicide talk

Mon, 03/31/2014 - 08:10

It looks like there’s a twisted web of murder this April at Mortola Library. The Library hosts two talks on homicide and detective fiction.

The first on Monday, April 7, from 12:10 p.m. to 1:10 p.m., will feature English Professor Rebecca Martin, PhD, who will discuss her experiences researching and editing the book Critical Insights: Crime and Detective Fiction. The book, which examines practices of crime writing in American literature and as far as Japan, China, and Scandinavia, features essays that offer an introduction to the detective genre including chapters on Steig Larsson’s bestseller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Then on Tuesday, April 8, from 3:25 p.m. to 4:25 p.m., retired Detective Richard Sabol will discuss homicide investigations during his years with the Yonkers Police Department at Homicide: The Forgotten Victims. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, contact Danny Sabol at dsabol@pace.edu.

New charging lockers

Wed, 02/19/2014 - 12:40

New secure mobile device charging lockers are now available in the Birnbaum and Mortola Libraries.  Funded through the Student Technology Fee, the lockers enable users to charge various devices without needing charging cables.  Here are some simple instructions on how to use:

●  Available lockers are already open.  Ones in use are locked and have a red blinking light on the lock

●  Select an available locker and plug your device in

●  Close the door, hit “C,” then type in a 4 digit code of your own choosing, and then hit the key symbol.  The locker will now lock

●  When you come back to collect your device, follow the same process as locking the device to unlock (“C,” 4 digit code you created, then the key symbol)

 ●  After the locker opens, the lock resets and is now available for the next user to create their own code

 All lockers have Android charging cables available, the left side lockers have iPhone 4 charging cables and the right side lockers have the iPhone 5 charging cables (in addition to the Android one.)
