This month the library is celebrating "Happiness." This is in support of the Happiness Index Project (HIP), an interdisciplinary research initiative Marymount California University is conducting on the well-being of the people that reside in Lake County, CA. This initiative will utilize Marymount students and faculty in field research efforts aiming to identify metrics of well-being for Lake County residents assessing their overall quality of life and regional identity. The initiative beginning this Spring will continue through 2014 and beyond.
