Library Tip of the Day #3 (4/11/12)

TIP #3 - If we don’t have the item you need, we can request it from another library that owns it (Librarians are good at sharing):

Our Interlibrary Loan service allows you to obtain books, journal articles and other materials that are not available in Brown Library.  Student requests are honored for materials needed to fulfill the reading and research requirements of the College's course offerings.  Faculty and staff requests are honored for materials used for work-related inquiry or to support the mission of the college.  Get more information here: http://virginiawestern.edu/library/ill/index.php

It's National Library Week! Brown Library has a few things cooked up in order to celebrate.

  • Six Word Memoirs: Write your life in six words, and be eligible to win a “Writer’s Gift Basket!” Examples can be found here: Six-Word Memoirs: Life Stories Distilled on NPR. Enter to win online, or pick up a paper entry form in the library (one student and one faculty/staff winner).
  • Library Find-a-Word, main floor
  • Special Displays on the Writing Life, top floor
  • Library Tip of the Day, direct to you by email!

We’ll also have a table at Spring Fling on Friday, April 20th, where you’ll be able to create your own Newspaper Poems as well!
