On February 1st, I’ll be moving to the position of Interim University Archivist and Special Collections Cataloger at McKillop Library.  I will no longer add new releases to this blog, although I will keep the blog online for now, since I have created some instructional content (linked in the “Information” box in the right column) that may still be useful.

Once I am settled in, I’ll decide what to do with this content, and whether I will do any blogging in the future.

I appreciated the feedback I received on the blog.  It’s been a great experience.

The library has a list of new arrivals that is updated each month, so be sure to check it out:

Long winter’s nap


It’s time for me to take a break, and hopefully that’s true for you, too.  Here’s to hoping we can at least pile some interesting reading materials on our beside tables.

Looking for something to read?  Here are a few suggestions on books about the internet. Here are some websites to help you find what to read next.

If you plan to visit our library between semesters, please check our hours first.

Have a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year!
