Introducing our three newly sainted computers

Ireland Library would like to introduce the namesakes of the three new computers in the Reference Room.  They are Saint Jerome, Blessed Kateri, and Saint Lucy.

It was a hard fought race but these three candidates rose to the top to receive the honor of having a Personal Computing device named after them.  This might seem insignificant to some, but these indivduals will be implored every time a patron has only a prayer in completing a paper.

Thank you to all Ireland Library users who participated in the democratic process of nominating and voting for saints.  You make Ireland a unique place.

It’s time to vote for your favorite saint!

Ireland library has three new reference room computers — this comes with its benefits and challenges. On the one hand, people will no longer have to wait in long lines to check Facebook, but these new additions are nameless! While naming a child can in turn dictate the rest of their lives; naming our computers will allow staff to report problems with ease.

As the astute Ireland patron knows, each one of our computers is already named after a great saint in alphabetical order. The next letters up are J, K, and L.  The Ireland staff solicited names from the wider community and these are the top responses we received!  Below are the candidates with links to descriptions of each saint or blessed person. Also, check out the Reference room book The Book of Saints (BX 4655.2 .B66 1989) for a quick blurb on each candidate. And tell your friends to vote too! 

Under the J’s we have:

In the K’s, these names have been raised up: 

For the L’s, here is what was brought forward:  

As for voting, you have two options: 1) you can fill out the white slip of paper on the reference desk, and drop it in the jar there; or 2) go to the following Doodle polls and vote electronically.  Please cast one vote for each individual letter.  Polls close on Friday, May 11, 2012 at 5 p.m.  The new names for the computers will be announced during Finals Week.

  • Cast your online vote for your favorite “J” saint here
  • Cast your online vote for your favorite “K” saint here
  • Cast your online vote for your favorite “L” saint here

 Thanks for voting!  Rock the vote!

More computers at Ireland … help us name them!

Sick and tired of waiting to use a classic Ireland Library computer, well wait no more…WE GOT THREE NEW COMPUTERS…
 
But as the wise man once said, “more computers more problems.” We need to name each of the new additions to the reference room. As observant patrons, you might have noticed that each of our computers are named after a great Saint but in Alphabetical order, kinda like naming hurricanes but way cooler. The next letters are J, K, L.
 
So post your suggestions on this wall, or drop a note at the circulation desk and leave your legacy at the Ireland.
