The library will be starting a new program in 2nd semester: Library Lunch Bites. These will be 15-20 minute workshops about a technology tool related to research or reading. They will be held in the forum during lunch on most Fridays, beginning Feb. 8 when the topic will be the library’s new online catalog, Destiny (which Mrs. Chappell and I will be installing over exam week).
From Feb. 29 through May 30 (with the exception of March 21 and 28), Library Lunch Bites will focus on the 12 Faces of Google series. Watch the blog for info about the top secret topic for Feb. 22.
You’ve probably heard that merry tune, Twelve Days of Christmas, and you may have seen one of the web sites that tracks what all that stuff would cost. Beginning in February, the MW library will be launching a new program called Library Lunch Bites and the first series will be Twelve Faces of Google. No cost calculations are necessary because all the sessions are FREE!
Library Lunch Bites will take place each Friday during lunch for 15-20 minutes. Each Lunch Bite session in this series will introduce one of the many faces of Google (twelve is only a fraction of what they offer). Most of these Google products require that you have a Google account, so if you don’t already have one, consider creating one.
The sessions in the Twelve Faces of Google series will introduce the following products (not necessarily in this order):
- Google Book
- Google Documents
- Google Groups
- Google News (including Google Alerts)
- Google Notebook
- Google Presentations
- Google Reader
- Google Scholar
- Google Spreadsheets
- Google Uncle Sam
Stay tuned to the MW Library blog for more info as February draws closer.
