Exhibit Celebrates Faculty Research and Creative Scholarship in the Library

The Library and TCU's Office of Sponsored Programs are excited to celebrate our faculty during the month of February 2021! Scholarly works of 123 faculty members are on display in the Mary Couts Burnett Library Sumner Room and Reference Reading area. This display showcases the myriad contributions faculty make in the realm of scholarly publishing: artwork, journal articles, books, book chapters, music and multi-media published in 2019 and early 2020.

The display also has an online portion that was beautifully crafted by senior library specialist Beth Callahan.

How do I Get Food in the Library?

Due to the pandemic, the Bistro is providing touchless service. You must order with the Grubhub app on Apple or Android and then pick your order up at the Bistro.

This LibAnswer contains instructions on how to use the Grubhub app to order from the Bistro.

If you are eating and drinking while in the library, please remember to wear your face covering as much as possible. Slipping the covering to the side while drinking is one way to limit aerosol exposure for you and others. Thanks!

Monday – Thursday: 7:30 am – 12:00 am
Friday: 7:30 am – 3:00 pm
