BookWise for April 8 April 9, 2008Posted by mplibrary in weekly BookWise.
New at the BookWise Blog: Photos of students in action, plus:
*Student Assistant Autumn Lowry describes what she has learned about the library.
*Two free database trials to use through April 30:
AP Images – for thousands of Associated Press photos from 1840’s through today
CQ Researcher – Congressional Quarterly Press’s database of in-depth reports on American government, public policy, politics, history, and current affairs. Leave comments to tell us what you think of these databases.
Student survey is on its way:
Watch your email for your online student library user survey and let us know how we’re doing! Do you need more books on certain topics? More journals? More fines? Submit the survey and be entered in a drawing to win a $50 Amazon gift certificate.
Not sure which books or databases to choose for your topic?
Use the library web site’s Research Guides by Subject to see which reference books, databases, and web sites are best for that topic. You’ll find help with history, business, English, psychology, and every other field of study.
Quotation of the week:
“The day computers completely replace librarians, I shall stop researching history.” -Dr. Durwood Dunn, TWC Professor
