This new Falvey Library Blog is dedicated to library news of special interest to Communication faculty and students. Check in regularly to find out about new books, library events, changes to resources, database trials, and other news.
For those of you I have not met, my name is Kristyna Carroll, and I am the new Communication liaison at the library. I started at Falvey in April, and as a Villanova alum, am excited to be back on campus! Although I will be the primary librarian, Linda Hauck remains part of the team that provides services to the Communication Department. To read a little more about my background, check out this post in the Library News blog.
Although I have already had the pleasure of meeting several faculty members, I look forward to working with many more of you. And, since this is my first semester on campus, I am very excited for the students to arrive!
As the new semester begins, please keep in mind the services the library offers. The library’s instruction room is booking up fast, so please let me know if you would like to bring your class to the library for an information literacy session. We would also be happy to come to your classroom to speak with your class. Furthermore, please let me know if you would like me to create a Course & Topic Guide specific to your class.
If you would like to be involved in the selection of new books, please contact me to receive notifications from our book vendor. These notifications can be tailored to very specific areas of study and sent out as frequently as you would like. Suggestions for books, journals and other resources outside of this system are also appreciated. Volunteers to assist us with the removal of outdated materials from the collection are always welcome.
I hope your semester gets off to a great start, and that you enjoy your new library blog!
