This March, the Nahman-Watson Library, in collaboration with the GCC Education Department, is celebrating World Book Day (March 1st) with a month-long display of alphabets from across the world. We are celebrating this building block of literacy by displaying alphabets from many different world languages in picture books, posters, and interactive displays.
Join us to browse our display, share your alphabet knowledge, and create some alphabet art!
This display can be found in the library solarium and on the bulletin board, just outside the library front doors. It will be up from March 3rd through March 31st.
What the heck is MLA? APA? What does it mean and, more importantly, why does it matter? Learn about what citations are and how to make them correctly, for beginners or as a refresher for the start of the new year. MLA and APA styles will be covered.
Food and beverage available for participants.
Join us next Tuesday, February 25th, from 12:30 to 1:30 pm, in the MacLeish room (C307).
Questions? Contact Liza at email@example.com or 413-775-1836.

Are you working on a research paper right now? Have you put in a lot of effort on a class project, but aren’t sure how you could use your work after the semester ended? Consider presenting your work at the 2014 UMass Undergraduate Research Conference! Presenting at a conference can help you showcase your work and network with other students – and would be an incredible addition to a resume or transfer application.
What do you need to do to participate?
You can use the work you are have already done, or will do this semester. This may be a research paper you have written, an independent study you’ve worked on, a community service project, or a creative work in the arts.
Join us this spring to learn more about the conference and get support on completing your application. The spring workshop schedule for interested students begins this Wednesday:
- Wednesday, January 29th , 12:00 – 1:00, MacLeish Room: Information Session about the UMass Undergraduate Conference and Overview on how to write an abstract

What is the Undergraduate Research Conference? Who participates?
Each year undergraduate students of diverse backgrounds from across the Massachusetts Public System of Higher Education gather to present the results of their original work in oral and poster presentations before their peers, faculty, and the public. Community College students present along with 4 year students. GCC has had past successful student presenters!
Students present work related to:
- Thesis research
- Creative work in the visual and performing arts
- Independent study
- Community service
- Study abroad
First held in 1995 for the four undergraduate campuses of the UMass system, the conference has grown to involve more than 600 students from nearly all of the public colleges and universities in Massachusetts.
