There are many ways to stay up to date with news from the Library, from following us with social media to talking with a librarian one on one. Arguably, the easiest and most in depth method is reading the multitude of blogs the Library manages. The library news blog is the best place for general news and events; this blog is maintained by the Communication and Service Promotion team. The following are the research related blogs different departments curate:
Blue Electrode: Sparking between Silicon and Paper is all about Digital Library news. Michael Foight is in charge of this blog which features recent content updates, such as new e-books added to the Digital Library and the completion of a podcast. Business Reference, on the other hand, is the premier destination for business information maintained by Linda Hauck.
Merrill Stein and Jutta Seibert contribute to the History & Political Science blog, which is gearing up a for a massive World War I exhibit; please follow this for more information in the future. Nursing keeps you up to date with all news in the nursing world. A recent blog post revealed which county in Pennsylvania is the healthiest. The Social Sciences blog offers updates on new videos and books that were recently ordered, among other things. Kristyna Carroll, the communications liaison librarian, contributes to this blog the most.
Falvey’s Technology Team created the Library Technology Development blog to keep patrons in the know about recent updates to Vufind and other library related software. The Philosophy blog is mainly geared towards graduate students in that program but welcomes all readers. Content is usually generated from the Department of Philosophy with occasional stories from the liaison librarian, Nik Fogle. Golden Electrode: the Aurelius Digital Humanities Initiative Blog was created by Laura Bang to cover all things related to Digital Humanities.
Whatever your area of interest, the Library has you covered in a multitude of outlets: blogs, social media, events, and, in the near future, podcasts.
