Airbears will be retired in May 2015, so now is a good time to finally set up Airbears 2. You can follow these simple instructions to connect to Airbears 2 from your personal computer. You have to create a key before signing into the network. After making an Airbears 2 key, just select the appropriate wifi option and sign in with your CalNet ID as the username and the generated key as the password. Once you do this the first time, your computer should automatically connect to Airbears 2 anywhere on campus.
The campus will continue to offer other viable wifi options like Eduroam and Calvisitor. Learn more about campus wi-fi options via Information Services and Technology (IST).
Story Hour in the Morrison Library resumes this Spring with Maria Hummel, author of the award-winning poetry collection House and Fire and two novels, Motherland and Wilderness Run. Hummel will be reading from her work on February 12, 2015 from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Her poetry, fiction, and nonfiction have appeared in Poetry, New England Review, Narrative, The Sun, The New York Times, and an anthology, The Open Door: 100 Poems, 100 Years of Poetry Magazine.
Each year, the Library asks about 100 first year students in the College of Letters & Science to explore a campus library they've never been to before and take a picture of "something interesting." See the funny, creative and interesting results on the Letters & Science Library Tumblr page.
February is the final month to stop by Doe Library to check out the Birds Do It, Bees Do It exhibit! The exhibit explores the many ways Americans have taught and learned about sex in the last century, covering everything from the conservative early twentieth century to the beginnings of self-love and the sexual revolution in the sixties and seventies. It draws from the resources of campus libraries, from academic programs, and from social services provided by and for the Berkeley campus community.
The physical exhibit will be available until February 28, 2015 in the Doe Library's Bernice Layne Brown Gallery. If you miss it in the Library, you can always check out the online exhibit.
