Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at the Library!
For a number of years, the Library has collected donations of food and personal care items benefiting Community Action House. Please consider grabbing a few extra items below next time you go to the grocery store. The donations are very appreciated by CAH and are used for families in our own community. Donations will be collected through exam week at the display on the first floor of the Library.
The scholarly research you have worked so hard on should be available to the widest audience possible. The Open Access concept allows authors to share their research anywhere, with anyone. Open Access Week brings attention to the changes needed in academic publishing today.
Hope faculty affirms the core value of the college “to contribute to the body of knowledge in the academic disciplines” with a vision “to pursue truth so as to renew the mind, enrich the disciplines and transform the culture.”
In the last year alone, 6,206 faculty publications have been downloaded from Hope College’s Digital Commons, a repository of scholarly work from the Hope College community. Hope College Library would love to increase the number of submissions from faculty members! Our Open Access LibGuide has all the information you need to submit your articles to Digital Commons.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence:
- 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will experience some form of intimate partner physical violence in their lifetime.
- The prevalence of domestic violence transcends race, socio-economic status, gender, and religion.
- Domestic violence is most common among women between the ages of 18-24.
To help raise awareness, Hope College Library is proud to display “The Door,” an interactive art piece by artist and domestic violence survivor and counselor Stacy Dubay. Ms. Dubay’s artist statement says “Statements on the door illustrate experiences I have heard in my work and the suitcases reflect my individual struggles as a survivor. The exhibit is meant to be touched and accessible to the viewing public. Viewers are encouraged to ‘take the journey’ and walk through the door, open the suitcases and look at the contents. Survivors are invited to sign the back of the door.”
Near “The Door” is a display with resources on how to get help as well as some Library materials about domestic violence and its effects.
This exhibition includes images and language that may be upsetting or offensive to some audiences. If you choose to view the exhibition, please understand that it intends to promote awareness and provoke discussion about important issues among Hope College students, faculty and staff. The content of this exhibition may not be appropriate for everyone: parents or guardians of school-age children should preview the exhibition before allowing the children to visit the exhibition.
Hope College Library would like to thank their partners in bringing “The Door” to campus:
Counseling and Psychological Services
Center for Diversity and Inclusion
Women’s and Gender Studies Program
Center for Women and Transition

If you’ve visited our lower level this fall, you may have noticed some changes to the layout. Over the summer, we shifted the entire level so that the journals are now clustered together at the south end of the floor. Browsing the print books should be much easier without having to bypass long runs of journals. We are working toward separating the journals from the books on every floor of the library, and the fourth floor is now the only remaining level where the two types of materials are intermingled.
If you enter the lower level by way of the main staircase, the journals are on the shelves behind you. The print books start on the shelves immediately to your right with the “P” call numbers. The books continue around the north end of the level in a counterclockwise fashion, then loop out toward the Rare Book Room, and end near the elevator with the “Z” call numbers and the “OVERSIZE” books. Click on the annotated map to the right which shows the flow of call numbers as well as the location of books by subject area. The new subject labels on the end of each row of shelves, color coded according to this map, should also help you plot your course.
Whenever you’re browsing by subject area, please remember that you’re only seeing about half of the books we have available! The other half are e-books that can be accessed via HopeCat or with the help of our Research Librarians.
