Thanks to your loyal patronage of this site, the MW Library blog crossed the 100,000 visits mark this week! To celebrate this milestone, I wanted to take a moment to thank you AND to get your input about how to continue refining the library’s online features to meet your needs.
Launched in September 2007, the MW Library blog averages about 3500 visits per month, with the Databases page being the busiest. But there’s always room for improvement. What would you like to see on this blog – or its companion collaborative site, the MW Library Research Commons?
Would you like to see more screencasts (like “How much of the URL do I need to cite?“) to answer pesky FAQs like that one that might plague you at 1 a.m. on Saturday when you’re working on a paper – or similar tutorials to help you search databases (like JSTOR) or the open web more effectively? Would you like to hear podcast book reviews by your peers, hear about cool new tech tools to enhance your research or presentations, or read about a featured book-of-the-week connected to the current global studies rotation or a timely topic associated with current events?
Please participate in the poll below to help shape future online features for the MW Library. Due to the Internet filter at school, you might need to complete this on your home computer. If you don’t have a home computer, please stop by the library to share your feedback in person or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
