Library honors courageous women of the Bible

by Ellen Cox, Business Manager & Special Projects Assistant

In observance of Women’s History Month, the Library has a new display: Courageous Women of the Bible. Six of the Bible’s most courageous women are displayed in the cabinets near the Gallery. Sarah, Deborah, Esther, Ruth, Mary, and Anna all answered the call of God on their lives. Through the ages they have inspired women and men to be brave and trust in the Lord. By their examples of faithfulness to God’s call, they remain a blessing to us today. The Lord continues to choose women of courage who will fulfill His purpose every day. Join us in celebrating God’s courageous women.

Road 2 Regent Multimedia Exhibit

Written by Leanne Hillery, Assistant Librarian

On September 10, 2009, the Road 2 Regent Multimedia Exhibit opened in the 1st Floor Exhibit Area of the University Library. The exhibit, consisting of photographs and video, chronicles the journeys of ten individual students and one couple: from their decision to come to Regent University through the impressions they have formed since their arrival. Both on-campus and distance students took part in the project undertaken last summer by assistant librarian Leanne Hillery and Library systems manager Mark Zillges. The project grew out of the Library’s desire to support the University’s global competency initiative and to celebrate the diversity of its student body.

According to Library dean Sara Baron, “The subjects of the posters were nominated by their deans because they represent a variety of stories and backgrounds. The Library was thrilled to work with these students on a fun exhibit that highlights diversity in our student body. We know there could have been many more participants.” The exhibit will run until October 30, 2009 and can also be viewed online by clicking the Road 2 Regent icon on the Library homepage.
