Picturing Our Library: Watercolors by SJSU Art Students (Gallery Shows)

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library and San José State University Department of Art and Art History are honored to present Picturing Our Library: Watercolors by SJSU Art Students, an exhibition in celebration of the library’s 10th anniversary. The exhibit was displayed in the library from September 3-30, 2013.

Rendered by San José State University art students under the instruction of Professor Gale Antokal, a collection of eighteen watercolors captures the remarkable vantage points of interior and exterior landscapes of the King Library. Our library is a center for knowledge, a symbol of innovation, a place of reflection, and it is a playground for the curious and imaginative. Highlighting the multiplicity our library, each watercolor presents our library as a monumental feat of architecture, intellectual resources, and cumulative experiences from our community. Our library gives its patrons as much as we give it, and the heart of our library is the bond we have chosen to cherish and develop over the past 10 years. Our library is a hub of possibility—whether inside it, outside it, or beyond it—our library is always with us.

To recognize and celebrate this milestone, the SRJ’s fifteenth issue features contribution by Dr. Mary C.

Dr. Sandra Hirsh’s, iSchool Director, Reaching New Scholarly Heights, takes an in-depth look at the SRJ’s publishing characteristics, contributor attributes, and article topic trends.

The SRJ advisor, Dr. Anthony Bernier’s, Leaning Forward, focuses on the importance of collaboration and teamwork, and how the Journal staff exemplifies a cohesive unit that consistently yields a bi-yearly student-run product, the only such publication at SJSU.

In her culminating editorial, former SRJ Editor-in-Chief, Holley Cornetto reminds readers and authors of how far the Journal has come with more than 100,000 downloads, and counting. Cornetto leaves the position of Editor-in-Chief having expertly guided the SRJ’s growth and influence.

Secrecy and Society (School of Information)

ISSN 2377-6188

The catalyst for this special issue of Secrecy and Society stems from a workshop titled “Secrecy and Intelligence: Opening the Black Box” held at North Carolina State University, April, 2016. This workshop brought together interested scholars, intelligence practitioners, and civil society members from the United States and Europe to discuss how different facets of secrecy and other practices shape the production of knowledge in intelligence work.

World Map

This dialogue is reflective as to how the closed social worlds of intelligence shape what intelligence actors and intelligence analysts, including those within the intelligence establishment and those on the outside, know about security threats and the practice of intelligence. The papers in this special issue reflect conversations that occurred during and after the workshop.

The guest editors for this special issue of Secrecy and Society are Kathleen Vogel and Brian Balmer.
