National Library Week - The Saint John’s Bible Heritage Edition
The Saint John’s Bible Heritage Edition is a monumental work capturing the spirit, scale, materials and techniques of the great medieval European Bibles, while bringing them into the present with a New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) text. This exceptional new addition to Samford’s collection is the culmination of more than 40 years of research and artistic labor by Welsh artist Donald Jackson and a host of theological advisers and craftspeople.

Samford University Library will join libraries nationwide in celebrating the American Library Association’s National Library Week April 14-20. The university will highlight unique gifts to its collection each day of that week.

National Library Week - “The Pilgrim's Choice” Display
This unassuming little collection of 266 hymns and spiritual songs is one of only four known extant copies of the first Baptist hymnal known to have been published in Alabama. David W. Andrews compiled the work and Jacksonville, Ala., printer J.F. Grant printed it in 1843. The only other known copies reside in the Alabama State Archives, the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and a private collection.

Samford University Library will join libraries nationwide in celebrating the American Library Association’s National Library Week April 14-20. The university will highlight unique gifts to its collection each day of that week.

National Library Week - C.S. Lewis Display
It’s hard to overestimate the influence of C.S. Lewis on multiple generations of readers. His science fiction, children's literature, and devotional writings persist in popularity, while his scholarly works continue to be studied and analyzed. Films and plays based on his work entice young audiences and lay the foundation of a generous and beautiful Christian theology.

Samford University Library will join libraries nationwide in celebrating the American Library Association’s National Library Week April 14-20. The university will highlight unique gifts to its collection each day of that week.

National Library Week - Alfa Presentation Room Open House
In February, Samford dedicated its new ALFA Practice Presentation in library room 214 . With funding from the ALFA Foundation, the facility was renovated and outfitted with the latest technology to help students practice and refine presentations for classes, seminars, conferences and thesis defense. In addition to dedicated recording software, the room features an electric screen, projector, video camera and confidence monitor.

Although the room is reserved for student use, this open house will introduce the facility to the entire university community and public.

Hellenic Scholars Library
In partnership with the Birmingham Philhellene Society, Samford University Library is developing a collection dedicated to Greek culture, thought, art and letters. “The Hellenic Scholars Library has been a wonderful resource for our faculty and students, providing many rare and unusual texts for our study and research,” said Samford Classics Department chair Randy Todd.  He noted that the collection also has facilitated many positive connections to Birmingham’s Greek community.
Samford classics professor Doug Clapp noted that although pride in Greek culture was exaggerated for comedic effect in the film “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” “it is no stretch to say that we can trace our ideas, our ways of thinking, back to their ancient Greek origins through the writings of, among others, Homer, Plato and Paul. “By preserving a multitude of Greek voices,” Clapp said, “the Hellenic Scholars Library can help a twenty-first century world maintain access to ancient wisdom that can help us thoughtfully consider our modern quandaries.”

The Hellenic Scholars' Library is located on the lower level of the library, adjacent to the Special Collection department. Its materials are accessible through the Samford Libraries Catalog.

Samford University Library will join libraries nationwide in celebrating the American Library Association’s National Library Week April 14-20. The university will highlight unique gifts to its collection each day of that week.

Healing Ethics and Law Institute (HEAL) Annual Conference

The Healthcare Ethics and Law [HEAL] Institute was created as an interdisciplinary effort within Samford University in 1999. Its mission is to better support the unique and complex relationships between patients and health-care providers, the individuals who make patient-care decisions, and the institutional ethics committees who offer them advice and counsel. In keeping with the central mission of Samford University, the institute supports patients and health-care professionals primarily with educational programs. At present, the institute is the only program within the university that builds upon the cooperative spirit of faculty and fellows from the Howard College of Arts and Sciences and issue-related professional schools (business, law, nursing, pharmacy and divinity). The institute was established through a challenge grant from the principal benefactor/alumnus of Samford's pharmacy school, R. Clayton McWhorter. McWhorter founded and was chief executive officer of HealthTrust, Inc., which owned and managed acute care facilities. He founded LifeTrust America (a senior services corporation) that operates throughout the Southeast.

Lay Academy of Theology : What Became of Creation
This class will be a detailed study of Genesis chapters 1-11. Dr. Allen Ross will help us grasp the seriousness of what happened to God's creation after sin entered the world – a contamination that that forced God to bring judgment upon the earth and mankind. But, at the same time, necessitated a plan of redemption to restore blessing to the world…a plan that God chose to put into place because of His great love for the very people who rebelled against and refused to obey Him. Join us for this exciting study that reminds us that there is always hope when that hope is placed in The Creator.

Managing Violence In the Workplace
Has anyone not been disturbed at the acts of violence we have witnessed in the past several months? Not only have we witnessed violence in our schools, theaters, etc. but many of us can provide illustrations of workplace violence and many of us talk about how violence seems to be increasing. I doubt many of us are now saying "it can't happen here". We are all asking how can we address our exposure and what can we do to minimize acts of violence at our work place.

We invite you to participate in a three hour seminar designed to help you recognize signs of potential violence; develop a strategy to curb violence and to help you develop a plan to foster a safer work environment.

You will hear presentations from professionals who deal with this issue every day and you will learn best practices for creating and fostering a safe work environment, gain an understanding of monitoring techniques, learn how to lower your exposure through the use of properly designed employee assistance programs, and gain an understanding of compliance responsibilities. 

Deadline for registration is April 10 at 4pm. Please note: Parking instructions and room information will be provided after registration. 

Fee: $95 per person.
