The CFAL is giving away some excess music books in the Listening/Viewing Center, near the Service Desk. They’ll be there until Friday or until they are gone. After that, any leftovers will be moved to the give-away shelves on the Garden Level.
Visit Crouch and take a look at our display of winter sheet music from the Spencer Collection.

We have brand new, lightening-fast iMacs in the META lab! Go to the Crouch website for more information about software installed on these new machines.
3 new iMacs have replaced the mac mini’s near the Crouch Circulation Desk.
The biggest news is that all three iMacs have most of the same software available in the META lab a few feet away (they will not have Pyware) INCLUDING MIDI keyboards for use with programs like Finale and GarageBand.
… the iMacs in the META lab will be upgraded very soon as well :)!
We have another new piece of equipment to crow about! This beautiful, museum-quality exhibit case that has been provided through the generosity of the Baylor University Women’s Association of Houston.
We will use this case, which has a much taller display area than the old one, to display treasures from our Special Collections and works of visual art. What would you like to see? Suggestions are welcome.
The CFAL staff is excited about receiving this new compact shelving unit. We have some of these for videos, but this is the first for CDs. It will provide some much-needed growth space for our ever-expanding collection of recordings. Over the next few days, we will be moving and reconfiguring the entire CD collection, but should still be able to retrieve any that you request.
Mari Eckstein Gower’s beguiling creation Lost in the Book of Kells graces the Crouch Fine Arts display case through the remainder of summer 2013. Drawing inspiration from the original Book of Kells (8th century illuminated manuscript), Gower fascinates with intricate patterns, imaginative creatures and poetic verse.
