The William R. Jenkins Architecture and Art Library invites you to stop in and venture upstairs to the newly inaugurated A2Alcove, a gallery and lounge space. Currently featuring the (appropriately themed) Library Series by Nabila Dadhaboy, this cozy nook affords a complement of Barcelona Chairs on which to relax, contemplate the vision of UH student artists and/or peruse a current issue of one the library’s architecture or art periodicals. We hope to provide visitors with an on-going, rotating display of exciting, new student work, and our student artists with an ongoing opportunity to have their work hung and exhibited. Interested in exhibiting your work? Artist inquiries can be directed to Chris Conway at firstname.lastname@example.org
A new student organization has formed to support the mission and services of the William R. Jenkins Architecture and Art Library, located within the College of Architecture. The William R. Jenkins Library Ambassadors are students who are enthusiastic about the library’s collections and services. They sponsor events and activities that highlight library resources, promote student research, and integrate the art disciplines at the University of Houston. Each of them receives advanced research training, so they can instruct their fellow students on the use of library resources and communicate the benefits of library use. They also serve as an unofficial advisory board to the Architecture and Art Librarian, their faculty adviser, who involves them in the planning and improving of services. The William R. Jenkins Library Ambassadors are an independent student organization, supported by the Center for Student Involvement, with elected officers and regulated by their own constitution.
The Ambassadors are actively seeking new members. If interested, please contact Joshua Hollie, President, at email@example.com or visit their website: https://uh.collegiatelink.net/organization/libraryambassadors.
The Architecture and Art Library received over 90 submissions from a wide range of undergraduate, graduate and post-baccalaureate students enrolled in studio art, art history, architecture, media production, environmental design, applied math and biology, to name a few.
Kathryn Kelley (MFA ’06), a regionally-based, multidisciplinary artist and instructor, graciously served as judge and curator of this year’s exhibition, which will be on display on the third floor of the M.D. Anderson Library.
The opening event is Wednesday, February 12th at 3:00 p.m. You are invited to experience this stunning collection of original artwork created by UH students, and to mingle with the artists and curator Kelley.
The exhibition will be on display on the third floor of the M.D. Anderson Library through April 25th.
Three new iMacs have been installed in the Architecture and Art Library. There are now four additional workstations that require no login, in order to expedite printing. Printing, copying and scanning services are now consolidated in a single room adjacent to new PC and Mac workstations on the upper mezzanine, so students can work seamlessly and efficiently.

We are looking for student ambassadors, who can advise the library on collections, services and promotions, and help the library communicate with other students and alumni. Spaces are limited to 10 students from each major field of study. We have enough participants from architecture and interior architecture, but are still looking for students in other majors. Consider joining if you are looking for opportunities to:
· Serve as a student leader.
· Make library services more student-centered.
· Help the librarian develop the library’s print and online collections.
· Build your resume.
· Network with other students and alumni.
· Help your fellow students find and access information needed for their research.
The ambassadors will work with the library staff to develop activities and a schedule for the academic year. We anticipate no more than one meeting a month or less, under normal circumstances.
If you are interested in serving on the first Student Ambassador Board, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, October 31st. Please include the following information in your message:
