New Films from Bailey/Howe’s Media Resources

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Don’t forget to de-stress with some new films from Bailey/Howe Library’s Media Resources, located on the Ground Floor. A complete list of new movies can always be found here, but below are a select few!

 

The Wailing –  DVD 11866

wail

“The Wailing” is an expansive and often excruciating horror film from South Korea. It is the work of the director Na Hong-jin, whose 2009 debut feature, the action thriller “The Chaser” made a huge impression not least for its almost staggering flouting of genre convention. “The Wailing,” about demonic possession, is similarly uncompromising… I was so invested with Jong-gu and his family that as the suspense, violence and worse ratcheted up, I was not merely scared, but heartbroken…Handle with care.” – Glenn Kenny, The New York Times

 

Hunt for the Wilderpeople – DVD 11894

hunt

The coming-of-age tale, the on-the-run road movie, the buddy comedy, the boy’s adventure story — all genres that require a steady hand and a singular sensibility, and all of which you’ll find in Taika Waititi’s goofy, giddy mash-up about two fugitives fleeing authorities in the New Zealand bush. – David Fear, Rolling Stone

 

Night Will Fall – DVD 11872

night

As the WWII tide turned in their direction in 1944-45, the Allied forces had more than military liberation on their minds: They wanted to win the propaganda war as well, to forever discredit Nazism in Germany and around the world. Commissioned by the Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force, shot by combat and newsreel cameramen accompanying troops as they liberated occupied Europe, and supervised by a remarkable team, the film “German Concentration Camps Factual Survey” was intended to be their weapon. But politics prevented the pic’s completion and distribution, as recounted in British helmer Andre Singer’s powerful, must-see documentary “Night Must Fall,” which chronicles the untold story of the film’s history. – Alissa Simon, Variety

 

OJ: Made in America –  DVD 11874

oj

Ezra Edelman’s stunningly ambitious, eight-hour documentary is a masterpiece, a refined piece of investigative journalism that places the subject it illuminates into the broader context of the end of the 20th century. You may think you know everything about The Trial of the Century, …but “OJ: Made in America” not only fills in details about the case but offers background and commentary that you’ve never heard before. It is an examination of race, domestic abuse, celebrity, civil rights, the LAPD, the legal process and murder over the last fifty years, using the OJ Simpson story as a way to refract society. Its length may seem daunting, but I would have watched it for another eight hours and will almost certainly watch it again before the summer is over. It’s that good. – Brian Tallerico, Rogerebert.com

Restrooms for all!

Friday, August 26th, 2016

Restroom signage

The UVM Libraries are proud to be introducing some new non gender-segregated restrooms (also sometimes known as “all-gender,” “gender-neutral,” or “gender-inclusive” restrooms) as we start the fall 2016 semester.

These restrooms are the result of student demand, a campus-wide effort to expand access to restrooms that aren’t segregated by gender, and the library’s long-standing commitment to ensuring that all people have equitable access to information.

A few of the benefits of non gender-segregated restrooms are:

  • Safer spaces for trans and gender non-conforming library users
  • Less waiting for restroom availability based on gender
  • Easier access for caretakers of different gender presentations
  • Easier access for custodial staff

We’re also proud to uphold guidelines from the Department of Justice ensuring that trans students can use the restroom that’s consistent with their gender identity.

Basically, you get to choose what’s right for you!

You can find new non gender-segregated restrooms on the second and third floors of Bailey/Howe, near the elevators at the top of the main stairway (Rooms 251 & 252; 351 & 352). We’re currently completing Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant renovations to room 252 to increase accessibility.

We also have a pre-existing, non gender-segregated restroom on the ground floor (Room 026). To find it turn right at Media Services and follow signs for Acquisitions. It’s across from Acquisitions and next to the Free Book shelf.
