ANDREA FINGERSON is currently completing her MFA in Fiction at CSUSB. She is a fiction editor for Ghost Town
and the High School Outreach Coordinator for The Pacific Review
. She is currently working on her debut novel, a young adult story where education proficiency is mandatory and those who aren’t proficient are removed from society. The main character takes it upon himself to discover what happens to those who are removed when his younger brother fails his proficiency exam. Andrea teaches literature in the Moreno Valley Unified School District.
DONNA HILBERT’s latest books are The Congress of Luminous Bodies, Aortic Books 2013, and The Green Season, World Parade Books 2009. In 1994 she won the Staple First Edition writing award resulting in the publication in England of the short story collection, Women who Make Money and the Men Who Love Them.

She has served as Vice President for Programs of PEN Center USA West and she is a graduate of CSU, Long Beach.
In mid-August 2012, ERIC removed all free full-text ERIC Documents from the web.
In September 2012, approximately 20,000 ERIC Documents were restored. These come only from peer-reviewed journals and from publications of the Institute of Education Sciences, a government agency.
In March 2013, an additional 21,000 documents published from 2005-2013 were returned to the web. These represent documents that were never available in any other format.
Other documents are being returned to the web on a case by case basis, at user request. The best guess is that ERIC takes 4-6 weeks to respond to user requests.
For current information on the status of the ERIC Documents, please check the message on the ERIC web site and ERIC News. Additional information may be available from the ERIC Weeding Project blog.
Pfau Library still has its microfiche collection of older ERIC Documents; however, no microfiche copies have been produced by ERIC since 2004. Ask at the Check Out Desk to have an ERIC microfiche document retrieved from Storage; you must supply the 6-digit ED number for the document you are requesting. Microfiche documents may be printed or scanned using the microform readers on our 4th floor.
In cooperation with the Art Department and the Vital Technology Initiative, the ARTstor database of art images is now available through Pfau Library!
ARTstor offers images provided by numerous museums, artists’ estates, special collections, and more. In addition to fine arts such as painting and sculpture, ARTstor covers the traditional arts of numerous world cultures, archaeological sites, architecture, design, fashion & costume, and even images from the history of science.
A few examples of ARTstor’s variety:
Images in ARTstor are for scholarly and educational use, not for advertising or promotion. For information on acceptable reproduction of ARTstor images, see Permitted and Prohibited Uses. Selected images are licensed for reproduction in non-commercial scholarly publications, such as journals. For details, see Images for Academic Publishing (IAP).
Funds from the Vital Technology Initiative paid for the initial archiving fee and first two years of access to this database. Our thanks go to VTI and the Art Department, which initiated the VTI request, for enabling us to offer this resource.

May 10, 2013, is the release date for the movie “The Great Gatsby” starring Toby Maguire as Nick Caraway and the amazing Leonardo Dicaprio as Jay Gatsby. In the 1920s, Nick Carraway, a Midwesterner now living on Long Island, finds himself fascinated by the mysterious past and lavish lifestyle of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. He is drawn into Gatsby’s circle, becoming a witness to obsession and tragedy.
Author F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote the novel the film is adapted from in 1941 for “the youth of his own generation, the critics of the next, and the schoolmasters of ever afterward.” However, the novel failed to secure a position as a masterpiece of American literature until the 60’s. Find out for yourself what all the fuss is about! Read the novel (4th Floor PS3511 .I9 G7 1995b) then explore some of the abundant critical and biographical sources on Fitzgerald and his best-known novel.
See what was daily life like some 90 years ago? Stop by the library to view our display on the first floor to feel like you’re in the roaring twenties with Gatsby and his friends.
