We have the latest titles on display for National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, including Dr. Adam Segal’s book “The Hacked World Order: How Nations Fight, Trade, Maneuver, and Manipulate in the Digital Age.” Dr. Segal spoke about the “hacked world order” and the geopolitical climate of cyberspace on Oct. 17th at Bazarsky Lecture Hall. The display also features novels, including “Daemon” by Daniel Suarez, for those students looking for an escape from their studies.

The display is located just to the right of the Info Desk when you enter the library.

Usability Testing will take place in one 30-minute session during which you will be asked to complete various tasks using the library website while speaking aloud about what you are doing and why.
