LIBRARIES GONE DIGITAL

Check out The Chronicle of Higher Education‘s video interview with Sari Feldman, president of the American Library Association, as she discusses library transformation  – a transformation that Feldman says is “so much about the people who work [at libraries] and the talent they bring to support student research, student researchers, and faculty researchers.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today in 1835, Mark Twain (aka Samuel Langhorne Clemens) was born. Twain, best known for Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, was a man of wit and, one could say, charm. Most of us have read at least one of his classics, but if you haven’t or you want to revisit them, check them out of our stacks today!

“I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.” – Mark Twain
