We’ve been busy the last few weeks with the new semester. FIT students are back on campus, which means they’re back in classes, which means they are back to using the library non-stop. From library orientation classes to new books and a new online catalog of our materials, library workers have been super busy. While we were helping the students in front of us, we had to neglect you, our remote audience.
For the last seven years, Volumes & Issues has brought you information about our collections, New York City attractions and FIT events, and lots of other topics related to our programs and interests. We hope you’ve enjoyed our writing. Unfortunately, Volumes & Issues must go on hiatus for a while, so that we can work on other projects. We will miss writing for you every week, but you can keep up with the library’s adventures via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram until we meet again. You can also follow Material Mode, the blog for the Library’s Special Collections and College Archives. Also, there’s a lot to read here. Keep commenting on articles that interest you, because we’re still here!
We’re busy with other projects besides the blog this summer, but we didn’t want an important anniversary to go unrecognized. This summer is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall raid which began the Gay Pride movement.
I’ve written a lot about it before, and you can read that here:
