On exhibition in the Donohue Rare Book Room through January 15th is Notes of Beauty, a selection of illuminated gradual leaves from the rare book collection. Graduals are liturgical works that were used by choirs during Mass. The vellum leaves are manuscripts; the notes, text, and decorations were all done by hand. The works on display date from the fifteenth to the sixteenth century.
The exhibition is curated by Fahimeh Rahravan, a Library Student Assistant and graduate student in the University’s Museum Studies program. Please consider attending a gallery talk at which the Guest Curator will be available to introduce the exhibition:
Wednesday, December 2 at 2:30 p.m.
Friday, December 4 at 2:30 p.m.
Wednesday, December 9 at 2:30 p.m.

This holiday season, Gleeson Library wishes you much warmth and happiness.
Help us share the warmth with our Gleeson Library, St Anthony’s Sock Drive. Donate warm socks to someone in need. Drop off socks at the Library anytime now until the end of finals.
Homeless men and women have limited access to clean socks, increasing the risk of infections that can cause serious health issues. This season Gleeson Library is collecting clean new men’s socks, especially white athletic or outdoor socks to help St. Anthony’s socks in the city program https://www.stanthonysf.org/socksinthecity/ give socks today! Look for the “Sock Hamper” in the Gleeson Lobby 11/19/2015 through the end of finals
Please also join us for other Share the Warmth events

This week (November 13-21st) is International Education Week at USF, and across the United States. IEW is a national celebration of education exchange.
International Education Week encourages American students to consider studying abroad and welcomes international students who are studying abroad here. The week reminds us that we are a global community that learns from the meaningful connections that we make with each other.
Here at Gleeson, we’re celebrating IEW with a display and activity called “Only Connect,” which highlights letters, postcards, and mail art — with the idea that mail exchanges can be an exciting part of one’s study abroad experience, and have long helped to facilitate connections across continents and cultures. Look at an epistolary novel told in postcards and letters, write a note to a friend on a Gleeson Library postcard, or create some mail art of your own!
USF has several other IEW events planned this week. Check them out:
