Julie Gilbert and Anna Hulseberg (both library) presented at the 9th annual "Brick and Click" Libraries Symposium on Nov. 6 in Maryville, Mo. Their presentation, "Collection Development in Tight Economic Times: A Homegrown Workflow Analysis Program," explored the changing nature of library work and presented two projects the Gustavus library has undertaken to meet those challenges. Their paper was also published in the conference proceedings.

David played this same concerto with the same conductor, Robert Bergt, as part of his master's degree at the Seminary 40 years ago!

News & Announcements

St. Lucia Court Named... The Guild of St. Lucia proudly announces the 2009 Court of St. Lucia: Mary Dierkes, Jennifer Fox, Rebecca Hohag, Whitney O'Connell, Colleen Peterson, and Anna Swenson. Please vote for St. Lucia on Monday, Dec. 7, or Tuesday, Dec. 8, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. outside of the Evelyn Young Dining Room. Lucia Day is Dec. 10 this year. The Court of St. Lucia will be caroling in the residence halls beginning at 5 a.m. The Festival of St. Lucia will be marked at 10 a.m. in chapel with a service that includes a procession of the court and the sons and daughters of faculty and staff members as star children.

In the Event of a School Closing or Delay... Now that we've had our first snowfall, it seems like a good time to remind the community of the College's policies and procedures in response to inclement weather conditions. When College facilities will be closed or classes delayed or canceled during a work day due to inclement weather conditions, announcements will be made as soon as possible via campus communications as well as on the following media:

  • WCCO radio, television, and Web, Twin Cities (830 AM, Ch. 4, and wcco.com)
  • KEYC-TV (CBS/Fox), Mankato (Ch. 12 and keyc.tv)
  • KRBI (105.5 FM or buzzard105.com)
  • KEEZ (99.1 FM or myz99.com)
  • KQYK (95.7 FM or 957theblaze.com)
  • KYSM (103 FM or country103.com)
  • KNUJ radio, New Ulm (860 AM/107.3 FM or knuj.net)

If the College makes the decision to close, individuals will be paid for regularly scheduled hours for that day. If the College remains open but individuals choose to leave early due to inclement weather, the time off should be taken as unpaid leave, vacation, or PTO time with supervisor approval. Factors that influence the College's decision to delay or cancel classes include the following: expected precipitation, road conditions, visibility, and wind-chill factor. Be aware that the College's decision to delay/cancel may differ from area K-12 schools; Gustavus is influenced by the needs of the more than 2,000 students who live in campus housing, as contrasted with different factors and conditions at K-12 schools (e.g., busing, young children, etc.).

Still Seeking Ushers... Ushers are still being sought for Christmas in Christ Chapel services this weekend (Friday, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 5, at 3:30 and 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Dec. 6, at 3:30 and 7:30 p.m.). Volunteers would need to be at Christ Chapel 90 minutes before the service starts and may stay for the service or leave once the service begins. This is a great option for getting into a service if you forgot to order a ticket! If interested, contact Dana (x7550 or dlamb) or Lorie (x7520 or lsiebels) at your earliest convenience.

Parking Enforcement Changes for This Weekend... The Lund parking lot and the Norelius Visitor parking lot will be closed from Thursday, Dec. 3, at 11 p.m. through Sunday, Dec. 6, due to Christmas in Christ Chapel and the President's Dinner. With the exception of the Visitor lots, all parking lots will be considered "open parking" this weekend. Vehicles may be parked in any red, yellow, or green parking space without regard to permit color Friday, Dec. 4, until Sunday, Dec. 6. Overnight parking will still be enforced: green and yellow lots are posted for no parking 2-7 a.m., and Visitor permits are required to park after 2 a.m. in Visitor parking. Contact Campus Safety at x8809 with any questions.

Test of Gustavus's Emergency Communication System... Sometime this afternoon (Thursday, Dec. 3) by 3 p.m., the College will conduct a routine test of its emergency mass communication system. In the event of an actual campus emergency, timely communication can make a critical difference to health and safety. To this end, we must test our mass communication systems and protocols. If you have shared your emergency contact data with the College, you will receive automated voice and text messages via landline phones, mobile phones, and e-mail. Your off-campus emergency contacts will not be included in this exercise. You will not need to take any action in response to the test communications that you receive. If you have not already done so, please take this opportunity to enter or update your contact information in Gustavus's password-protected emergency communication database: https://gustavus.edu/gribly. We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation on Thursday afternoon. If you have any questions before or after the test, contact Lisa Octigan (eoctigan) in the Office of Campus Safety.

Nominate a Book for 'Reading in Common'... The New Student Orientation program invites you to nominate books for consideration for the 2010-11 Reading in Common program. A selection committee of faculty, staff, and students will meet for the first time in the next few weeks to begin the months-long process of reading and debating the merits of many great books! Go to Reading in Common and scroll to the bottom of the page to find a list of past titles, criteria we look for in books, and a suggestion form. The deadline to submit is Friday, Dec. 4. This link is active year-round, so if you come across a great book at any point in the year you can nominate it and it will be saved for the next year. The Reading in Common program, which is now entering its second decade at Gustavus, has supported the Global Insight focus the past few years and this is a consideration, though not a requirement, when choosing a book. Next year's Global Insight focus is food/nutrition.

Holiday Schedule Reminder... Due to the way the Christmas and New Year holidays fall on the calendar this year, the College will be officially closed from Dec. 24 until Jan. 3. The following holidays and floating holidays will be observed for Christmas and New Year:

  • Christmas Holiday - Friday, Dec. 25
  • Floating Holiday - Monday, Dec. 28
  • Floating Holiday - Tuesday, Dec. 29
  • Floating Holiday - Wednesday, Dec. 30
  • Floating Holiday - Thursday, Dec. 31
  • New Year's Day Holiday - Friday, Jan. 1, 2010

Grant a Wish... The Angel Tree is up in the Jackson Campus Center outside the Evelyn Young Dining Room. This is your opportunity to help a St. Peter area child in need by granting one special Christmas wish. The Angel Tree was started 12 years ago by a Peer Assistant, and has grown throughout the years to service approximately 200 children. You can participate by taking an "angel ornament" from the tree, purchasing a gift, and returning the wrapped gift to the Peer Assistant Office. If you don't have time to shop and would like to support this effort, monetary donations are also helpful for purchasing gifts for unreturned requests. For more information, please call Deb Reichel at x7607.

The performance is a collective creation, structured by the director, ensemble, and designers. Flashlights, furniture, and the surfaces of the performance space serve as simple props to help portray the complicated emotions of human beings in a unique and unforgettable way. Tickets are available online at gustavustickets.com or by calling 933-7590.

Michael Johnson Returns... Singer and guitarist Michael Johnson, who has delighted Gustavus audiences annually for 40 years now, returns to Björling Recital Hall, Friday, Dec. 11, for an 8 p.m. concert.

Johnson first performed at Gustavus in April 1968 with the late John Denver as part of the trio of Denver, Boise, and Johnson. Following his departure from the trio one year later, he spent a year acting with an off-Broadway company before returning to Minnesota and to singing. Since that time, he has studied and toured internationally eight times and has recorded 11 albums, which include ten hit singles and two #1 country songs of the year. Tickets for Johnson's annual winter concert are $20 for adults and $17 for students, senior citizens, & Gustavus faculty and staff. Tickets are available at gustavustickets.com or by calling the Gustavus Ticket Center at 507-933-7590. Any tickets remaining will go on sale one hour prior to the concert in Björling Recital Hall box office.
