YOU CAN’T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT…
…unless, of course, you want free access to back issues of Rolling Stone! Librarian Sarah Wingo lets us know that Rolling Stone‘s archive is coming to Google Play for free including, evidently, its very first issue. Can you imagine who was on its very first cover? Answer here!


NOW THROUGH 3/27: NEW TRIAL DATABASE THAT CROSSES DISCIPLINES

BLOOMSBURY

Philosophy, Theology and Humanities team coordinator and librarian Nikolaus Fogle, PhD, tells us that now until March 27, the library has a trial subscription to Bloomsbury Collections. This is a collection of e-books from Bloomsbury Publishing, which incorporates the previous Continuum, Methuen, and Berg imprints, among others. The collection is strong across a wide range of humanities and social science disciplines, including classical studies, history, literary studies, philosophy, political science and religious studies.

Click here to access the collections and watch our blog for more info on this wide-ranging digital collection.


QUOTE OF THE DAY
“My advice is, never do tomorrow what you can do today. Procrastination is the thief of time.” – David Copperfield by Charles Dickens


DO IT NOW!

If you have ideas for inclusion in The 8:30 or to Library News in general, you’re invited to send them to joanne.quinn@villanova.edu.
