Hello everyone, and welcome to another exciting edition of “New Library Resources” – because Acquiring Minds Want to Know!
To view a table listing the new print resources that the library received in March 2012, click Continue reading below. Most of the items listed there can be found in the General Collection and checked out for up to three weeks by members of the Coastal Community.
We also now have access to Covington & Burling’s prestigious collection of Congressional Hearings via HeinOnline’s U.S. Congressional Documents Collection. You can access HeinOnline through the Library & Technology Center’s Subscription Databases page.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to stop by the Reference Desk on the third floor of the Library & Technology Center or contact the Reference Librarians via email, telephone (904.680.7612), or the Ask a Librarian form.
Check back here for monthly updates on what the Library & Technology Center is adding. Updates will be published on the second Tuesday of every month.
If you think we should consider adding something to the collection, please feel free to recommend it here (Coastal ID login required).
Welcome to spring! What are some things I love about Spring? March Madness, movies and marshmallow bunnies! Take a minute this weekend to have some of all three: make sure you take in at least one of the last Elite Eight Men’s Basketball Games. The Hunger Games is the biggest movie draw this weekend (and, since it is based on a book, a Librarian’s favorite). Finally, learn how to make marshmallows (not quite bunnies, but once you learn how, just be creative!). Enjoy the first weekend of Spring!
Many of you have mid-term exams next week, so it might be a good idea to buckle down and hit the books this weekend! Remember that study aids from the Academic Success Collection can be checked out for 3 days at a time. Also, try to get some rest in between those marathon study sessions.
However, for those of you who are fortunate enough not to have mid-term exams and would like a fun, action-filled weekend, there are a couple of options! You could head to Daytona for the Daytona 500, or catch the NBA All-Stars in action in Orlando.
The Library has a blog. This is it. We will post announcements on Mondays (except for holidays). We will post some interesting things about law or libraries or books on Wednesdays. And on Fridays, we will give you some ideas of what to do for the weekend – which could range from looking for a topic for your ALWR to where to get good sushi. Librarians know all kinds of things.
Today, I would like to share with you the kind of things that Librarians watch when they are not answering reference questions or helping with research (which is not very often, that is why it is a short video): Here is what books do when you are not around.
