National Library Week – Tip of the Day

Information literacy is a core component of undergraduate instruction. Brown Library wants to partner with faculty and staff to promote information literacy. Here’s one of the ways we can work together:

Tip #3: Request a LibGuide for your course

LibGuides are librarian-created websites that include resources from the library’s databases and book collections and reliable resources from the Internet. A library staff member will create a specific LibGuide for your class or for a particular topic; contact Dale Dulaney to request a custom guide. Or you can refer your students to existing LibGuides from the library’s website.

Library Contest!

Students, faculty, and staff --- Enter the library’s “How Many Books?” contest. Guess how many books in print are in the Circulating collection on the top floor of the Brown Library Building. The student and the faculty/staff member who makes the closest guess (without going over the actual number of books) will win a prize! Go to the top floor of the library and look at the Circulating collection; then submit a contest entry form at either the Reference Desk or Circulation Desk. The contest runs April 15 through April 19, 4:00pm. Winners will be notified on Monday, April 21.

Happy National Library Week!
