The month is nearly over, but I wanted to put this pick out there, as it ties in with our celebration of Earth month.
The University of Chicago has created a repository, BiblioVault, that indexes books from scholarly and university presses.
People say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but let’s face it: it’s hard not to be intrigued by some of these covers. It’s almost like they are begging you to pick them! And no one at Meriam Library sees more interesting covers than Paula. Here is this month’s Paula Pick!
Where do you get your news and information in today's ever in your face social media world? Twitter? Facebook? Google? News website? NPR? TikTok??
Paula Scholtes has worked at Meriam Library for a total of 35 years, including as a student employee. In her current role as cataloger in the Library’s ACME (Acquisitions, Collection Management and Evaluation) department, she processes incoming books, entering them into our system, so they can be checked out by patrons. In other words, hundreds of new books cross Paula’s desk each month!
The library sends out notices to inform patrons of which titles they have out. Overdue items are considered lost if they are not returned after 12 days. If you still have items that were marked as lost, you may either return them or contact circulation to extend your due date.
All items are charged replacement fee when they are declared lost. Replacement fees are waived upon return. Overdue fines are not waived but are only applied to reserve and technology items.
Support Meriam Library in providing access to additional copies of the popular 2020-21 Book in Common, How to Be an Antiracist, by Ibram X. Kendi.
The Book in Common is a shared, community read, designed to promote discussion and understanding of important issues facing the broader community. It is chosen each year by a group of University faculty, staff, and community members.
Librarians are happy to help you out with the entire research process, from brainstorming and strategizing to finding, evaluating, integrating, and citing sources. Find your subject librarian below.
