SHAMELESS SOCIAL MEDIA PLUG ☺
Do you follow the library on YouTube? We have a great array of Falvey-produced videos old and new that are instructional and entertaining. Newcomers to the channel are archival copies of Gerald Dierkes’ Highlighter videos, which debuted last semester, featuring helpful insider tips on getting the most out of the library’s resources. View and rewind to your heart’s content!
QUOTE OF THE DAY
“The great secret, Eliza, is not having bad manners or good manners or any other particular sort of manners, but having the same manner for all human souls: in short, behaving as if you were in Heaven, where there are no third-class carriages, and one soul is as good as another.” – Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
