Becoming Personal

You will notice new signs on the reference desk in the morning when librarians are "on call" rather than sitting at the desk. Each sign will have a picture and name of the librarian on call, and tell you how to get a hold of her. Please do not hesitate to dial extension 4086 if you need help between 8-12 during the school week, we are are always very happy to come out and help you. It's what we're here for, and it's what we like to do best!

Blogging for Jobs

On Wednesday, February 13 at 9 p.m. in the library instruction room, the library will be co-hosting a program with the Career Development Center. The program is called Blogging for Jobs and will discuss how to use free, no-technology-knowledge-required programs to create a positive Web image of yourself for your job search. Refreshments will be provided.

This is not just for seniors. Planning ahead can help you organize the best stuff to put on your blog or social networking profile, and could help you with summer jobs and internships. So regardless of what year you are in, join us for this fun and educational program!

Google Gadgets for the Snowden Library

I have created two special Google Gadgets that will search the Snowden catalog for books we have, and another to search Reference Universe for reference articles. The Reference Universe gadget only works on campus, we are working to correct that.

You can find the Snowden catalog gadget here.

You can find the Reference Universe gadget here.

I suggest making a Library Resources tab with these two gadgets, and a bookmark gadget where you can add links to the library home page as well as the databases you use most often.
