Even if you weren’t able to make it to the 2nd annual Pedagogy and Technology Fair earlier this month, you still can see some of the presenters online. We’re adding many of their stories to our Teaching with Technology blog. Learn about clickers, Wikipedia, the campus tree map and more (to come!).
Watch this short video for some tips on finding Music CDs in your language. (Click the Full screen button for a better view):
Don’t see your favorite band or musician in MIDCAT (go/midcat)? Try searching the NExpress catalog (go/nexpress). If you still can’t find what you need, place an online purchase request using our Music Request form (go/musicrequest).
Visit the Language subject guides (go/subsplus), select your language, and go to Tips on the right hand side of the page to find preset searches for foreign language music and videos. (Check out this other video for another approach to finding music CDs in foreign languages.)

An Outlook reminder just told Barbara, Linda and me to start preparing the next LIS eNewsletter, so now seems like a good time to give everyone else a reminder on how to get announcements into the eNewsletter.
Once a month, Barbara, Linda and I review blog posts and topic suggestions. In consultation with Mike Roy and the Area Directors, we compile a list of existing blog posts that would be of interest to faculty, staff and students, and we seek authors for suggested posts. We add the “eNewsletter” tag to the posts in our list, then send links out to the campus.
If you want to be sure we consider your post for the eNews, please write to us. We try to be inclusive as possible. We also try to keep the message relatively short and readable.
We look forward to hearing from you!

The library recently added a subscription to Social Explorer, which provides easy online access to demographic information about the United States, from 1790 to present. It allows for the easy creation of thematic maps and downloading into other software products such as PowerPoint. It also provides convenient digital access to two censuses never before available online: 1970 and 1980.
