In This Edition:
It's only a couple of weeks into the school year, and already the library is busier than ever! Join us for some special events and peruse some special displays at the library this semester:
On your next visit to the library, take part in our Great Book Exchange, a chance for you to pick up a new (gently used) book or two and, in exchange, leave a couple for others to peruse and possibly take home. The book stand is in the hall near the Spoede Lounge. Decorative sign by student Melinda Fitsimmons
Editor's note: Watch for the Staff Spotlight once per quarter, in which we shamelessly promote our friendly library staff, accompanied by an embarrassing photo or two.
Tell us about your family: My husband Steve also works at the college (as the Director of IT Services). We have two children: Lucy (6) and Peter (5).
From The New York Times:

Library Hours for the Fall
Archivist Stephanie Wood recently attended Librarian's Day, hosted by the Federation of Genealogical Societies, in Knoxville, TN, where one of the speakers was the Archivist of the United States, David Ferriero. She also participated in a webinar on digitization by the leaders in the Digital Archives initiative on August 25.
Polly Revis attended a cataloging webinar entitled "Controlling Headings in WorldCat" on August 31. Topics discussed included the scope of current controlling functionality and the benefits of incorporating controlling into one's cataloging workflow.
For those who are taking things more in stride this year, the library is offering special opportunities on select Monday nights this year. Hopefully you received and at least considered our invitation to be a part of our People Books Collection coming Sept. 20th. Later on this semester be looking for another invitation to read aloud in one of our Evenings of Readings. We hope that you will not only volunteer to participate, but also come to enjoy and encourage students to do the same. They will have a chance next semester to do the reading aloud.
We are always open to suggestions for services, programming, and resources to offer, so contact us with yours, and enjoy this busy semester with us!
