BookWise is now a blog, too! Our blog will have the weekly BookWise email information plus some other interesting library and book-related tidbits as they arise. This week read about library rock stars and ghosts. We’ll talk about books we’ve read, films, web sites, useful resources for your classes, and more. Your comments are invited.

The 2 top psychology databases, PsycInfo & Psychology and Behavioral Sciences Collection, are great for finding articles on psychology, sociology, criminal justice, and education. You can search them both at the same time, and they index over 2000 journals, many of which are full text. http://0-search.ebscohost.com.library.acaweb.org/

What Are You Reading? This week’s contribution is from Ashley Edwards, SGA prez:
“My newest endeavor is A Hundred and One Days by Asne Seierstad — it’s a story about a woman who lived in Baghdad and talks about the culture and events from the eyes of someone on the inside. I rarely get a chance to sit down and read it, though — Dr. Dunn and Dr. Ruleman have reserved my free time for Holocaust Biographies and Western Literature 🙂 ” Ashley, come by and pick out your button!
