Digressions: A Fictional Look into the Fictional Mind of the Fictional
A Series by Benjamin J. Shaw, The California Poet
III: Living a Spartan Lifestyle
“Listen here, Shaw. It’s simple, really: you need to simplify
your life. You wonder why things get out of hand? Complexity. You need
to save complexity for the most important aspects of the life of the artist:
1) your hero’s quest. It must happen…if you wish to be a real
artist…like Morrison. He was completely conscious of his art. see
Tips for a More Effective Meeting
By Marianne Reynolds, Reference Dept
I attended a four-day intensive class at San Jose State University as
part of my Master’s program. The class was “Interpersonal
Communications for Librarians.” While some of you are snickering
at the title of this class (I myself was worried it might be the cheesiest

A DESTINATION FOR OLYMPIC TRAILS VISITORS
By Geri M. Welch, Director, Publications &
is quiet now, but for 10 days in July, it was the place to be for
thousands of track and field fans from around the U.S. and the world.
Although the athletes were deservedly at the center of attention,
the Library’s outstanding exhibits, talks, films and other
activities built around the Olympic Trials and the Athens Olympics
made the Library one of the top campus destinations for visitors.
On each day of the event, the most frequently asked question at
the CSUS information tent next to the stadium was “Where’s
During the Trials, the Library continued its
highly successful partnership with the University Library Gallery,
and also worked as partners with the University’s Showcase
committee, the University Bookstore, the Department of Music and
the Department of Anthropology’s Museum. The extensive displays,
exhibits and activities were the result of hard work by many Library
staff. I hope you agree that it was well worth it!
