Comic Book Club Spring Semester Selections

Did you know the Engineering Library has a Comic Book Club?

This semester we will be reading Monstress, written by Marjorie Liu and illustrated by Sana Takeda.  Monstress is set in 20th century Asia and tells the story of a teenage girl who shares a psychic link with a powerful monster.  Gorgeously illustrated in a style best described as art deco meets steampunk, this comic has garnered awards for its art as well as its storytelling.  The story includes magical creatures, sorceresses, and cat wizards.

We will also be reading Trinity: A  Graphic History of the First Atomic Bomb by Jonathan Fetter-Vorm.  Trinity tells the history of the race to build and the decision to drop the first atomic bomb.  The story takes you from 19th century European labs to the various locations of the Manhattan Project.  It has been described as both a graphic primer and a philosophical meditation.

You do not need to be an engineering student to participate in Comic Book Club nor do you need to be well-versed in the world of comics and graphic novels.  We welcome all majors and all levels of interest!  Contact Mara Inge (inget@missouri.edu) at the Engineering Library if you are interested.

PSA : Remember Your USB Flash Drives!

Alright, that 29 seconds might be a bit of an exaggeration, but the Engineering Library does get a lot of USB drives turned in at the circulation desk! Please remember to take your USB drive out of the slot before you leave. We don't want you to lose your assignments!

Some tips:

  1.  Add a contact folder to your USB drive which contains your name and email so we know it belongs to you. We try our best to reconnect USB drives with their owners and it makes it much easier when we have a contact information.
  2.  Encrypt the most important files on your drive so nobody can steal your information if you do lose it.
  3.  Add a keychain to your drive so it is easier to see and remember.
  4. Consider keeping backups of your files in a cloud service. Humans are not perfect so the odds of losing a small USB drive can be high. It is good practice to keep backups of your most important work elsewhere in case your USB drive cannot be recovered.
