Celebrate Poem in Your Pocket Day (Thursday April 24)

It is Poem in Your Pocket Day!  Stop by the library and receive a poem to read and share with others on campus.

And because poetry belongs to everyone why not share your own poem - you can leave your verse at the library for others to enjoy.

We will have paper and pencils for you!  The only thing you  need  bring is your inspiration and creativity!

The Charles Darwin Correspondence Project

Technology has made effortless communication possible at the expense of in-depth correspondence. During earlier periods letter writing was the primary mode of maintaining contact with friends and colleagues. In these letters authors revealed their thoughts and feelings in often lengthy discourses that provided insight on their thoughts, social network, and culture. One would think that with the advent of email and social networks modern writers would not be hesitant to expend the effort needed to produce more than a few lines of prose, but some of the most popular messaging systems have shrunk communication to no more than 140 characters. Thankfully the correspondence of many influential thinkers survive leaving a wealth of knowledge for us to enjoy today.

The Charles Darwin Correspondence Project is a digital archive of more than 7,500 letters written or received by the prominent scientist. Currently the collection consists of letters written from 1844 to 1869 with more being added. The web site is fully searchable by keywords and subject terms. Readers may also search by theme such as Darwin's personal/family life, Geology, Life Science, Gender, Human Nature, and Religion. A great place to start reading is the top ten editor selected  letters for each theme or the mailbox where readers may view the letters Darwin sent or received each day between the years of 1844 to 1882.

Celebrate Earth Day by exploring the letters of this great scientist!
