Someone has sent us another photo of our bulldog. This time he is in Paris! A student’s comment suggests that our little chien is doing research for Dr. Duncan’s History of Paris seminar.
Need Books or Articles from Other Libraries?
Did you know that the Library borrows and loans books with other libraries all over the country? We can also get copies of articles for you from journals we don’t have. For example, you may find a citation for a book in WorldCat or an article while searching InfoTrac Onefile that we don’t have. You can fill out an Interlibrary Loan request form from our web page and we will beam your things in from another library. The cost is $.10 per page for photocopies, and usually no charge for books. Allow a week or two to get most items in. Complete ILL policies are here. Make sure the library has your correct email address so you’ll be notified when the book or article is here.

Quotation of the Week:
“All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language; and every chapter must be so translated.” John Donne from Meditation 17, Devotions upon Emergent Occasions
