New Library Newsletter

It happened again. You'd think I would learn. I sent out a mass mailing announcing the latest library newsletter in which the links to it didn't work. I don't know if the issue is Mac/PC related. I do know that it is stupid to do an email to the whole university if you haven't checked the links on another computer.

Anyway here is a link to the newsletter. I hope it works online better than in email.

Mindset for the class of 2012

Beloit College has just come out with their annual list purporting to offer insight into the mindset of the entering college freshman. Always interesting; often surprising; perhaps not so relevant as suggested. But I do wish that I knew what some of the items referred to.

Netlingo--Yesterday's Word of the Day


Boolean and Boolean Logic
Note: this is not just a library concept. Boolean is a powerful way to give your web searching more focus. More time strategizing mean less time evaluating.Always go to the "Advanced Search" option to make use of a form that employs Boolean.
