Classes, happy hours, meetings, water cooler chats, birthday parties, group study sessions. What do these all have in common? These days, they’re all taking place over digital conferencing software like Zoom. One fun advantage to these digital conferencing tools is that they allow you to upload images to use as your backgrounds. Want to join your class from Mars? Play board games with friends from the Wild West? Zoom backgrounds make it all possible! And maybe you’re feeling a little homesick for your favorite study spot in the Leatherby Libraries. Never fear! We’ve got a whole album of images of the Leatherby Libraries, perfectly sized for Zoom backgrounds, available for download on the Chapman University Digital Commons.

Maybe you miss the peaceful studying solidarity of the Doy and Dee Henley Reading Room.

Perhaps you’ve written your best essays tucked into the corner on the first floor that houses the Graphic Novels Collection.

Or, now that it’s spring and the weather is warming up, you possibly would love to just hang out with friends enjoying the sunshine on the steps of the Leatherby Libraries.
