Student Bookplate exhibit poster

The Student Library Service Bookplate Program honors graduating student library employees by inviting them to choose books and other items for the Library’s collections. Each item will include a bookplate acknowledging the student’s selection and recognizing his or her service to the Library. Students are eligible if they worked at least two terms in any Library department, including the Student Center for Research, Writing and Information Technology (RWIT). This year Dartmouth College Library honors almost forty students from the Class of 2017 with selections including works of fiction, musical CDs, and classic works of the cartoon arts to a musical score and a history of makeup.

Each year the Library invites graduating student library employees to paricipate in an exhibit about the program. This year's participants are Beverly Alomepe, Reem Chamseddine, Eliza Grainger, Whitney Martin, Josefina Ruiz, Priyanka Sivaramakrishnan, Alexa Sonnenfeld, Fabian Štoček, Veronica Williamson, and Ran Zhuo.

Partnering for a Better World: The Matariki Network of Universities

Matariki exhibit poster

The Matariki Network of Universities is an international consortium of seven leading universities on three continents and in seven countries. It was established in 2010 to create new opportunities for collaboration in research and education, to foster faculty, student and staff exchange, create a forum for sharing best practices, and to promote local and global social responsibility . Matariki members are critical friends and trusted partners.

Matariki is the Māori name for the Pleiades star cluster, also known as the Seven Sisters. Matariki is also the word for the Māori New Year, which marks the rise of Matariki and the sighting of the new moon. 

The creation of the Matariki Network of Universities was inspired by the Pleiades, and represents the relationship between, and collaboration among, seven of the world’s leading universities.

Matariki member institutions include Dartmouth (United States), Durham (United Kingdom), Queen’s (Canada), Uppsala (Sweden), Tübingen (Germany), the University of Western Australia, and the University of Otago (New Zealand).

Exhibit offered in conjunction with Annual Meeting of the Matariki Network Executive Board at Dartmouth College, October 2017.

Curated by Laurel Stavis, Assistant Provost for Academic Initiatives and Jennifer Taxman, Associate Librarian for Research and Learning.
