omar winner 1 omar winner 2Congratulations to Zachary Ward and Bobby Ley for entering the Special Collections Starbucks gift card contest and answering the question about Omar Ibn Said correctly!

The question was: “What language did Omar use to write his autobiography?” Omar Ibn Said, a West African Muslim and Arabic scholar, wrote his autobiographical narrative of his life in his native Arabic.

This interesting exhibit featuring the manuscript written by Omar is currently displayed in the Special Collections Library. All are welcome to come view the exhibit, but you need to hurry! It will only be displayed through graduation.

Technology to Borrow @ Cooper Library

We just finished our survey all about technology — what you want AND what you need. (Thanks for helping us out with it!)

While we’re picking our winner, reviewing all the results, and making our shopping list; we wanted to remind you of the sorts of technology we already have.

Check out this video!

Survey Says…?

DocumentWe need your input!

We are in the midst of a technology equipment survey. We’d like to know just a few things; like have you borrowed any technology from us, did you use the reservation system, what technology would you like to have that we don’t have…stuff like that.

You can find the surveys in front of the Circulation Services desk. Fill one out, drop it in the box, and earn a chance at a drawing for a gift card!

Thanks for helping us out!



Earn a Chance to Win a Starbucks Gift Card

CoffeeThe Special Collections Library, located in the Strom Thurmond Institute, is giving you a chance to win a Starbucks gift card!!  All you have to do is come on down to the Special Collections Library and answer a question (listed below) about the current exhibit on display to enter the drawing for a chance to win a Starbucks gift card!

The fascinating exhibit in the Special Collections Library is a one-of-a-kind slave autobiography written by Omar ibn Said.  Omar could read, Omar could write, Omar was a slave.  Omar’s manuscript, “The Life of Omar Ibn Said, Written by Himself” (1831), is a deeply religious and personal text, quoting both the Christian Bible and the Islamic Qur’an, and asks fundamental questions about what it means to be truly free.  You can actually come see this manuscript on display in the Special Collections Library AND enter to win the drawing for a Starbucks’ gift card at the same time! (Drawing will be held the end of April)

Here is the question:  What language did Omar ibn Said use to write his autobiography?  Know the answer?!  Then come on down to the Special Collections Library (located in the Strom Thurmond Institute) with your answer and enter the drawing!  We’d love to see you and we’d love to show you the fascinating exhibit on display about Omar ibn Said.
