Apples, again? It's tradition!
September is Apple Month
At Southworth Library Learning Commons, thanks to the generousity of College Association, we have a tradition of giving out free apples all week during the first week of the month! Thank you CA! Let's also think of it as App-le Week this week and give some thought to the apps we use and love, the ones we'd like to try, tricks we've learned and would like to share, and apps we've seen used by others that we'd like to learn more about. Please take a moment to leave us a comment letting us know if there's an app you'd like to see made available, or one you use that you'd like to recommend. You can leave a comment here, tab over to the technology "page" of the newsletter to leave feedback, post something on our facebook page or leave a message in our digital suggestion box online; and of course you can always just stop and chat with one of us.
And be sure to stop by the Fishbowl on Wed., 9/4, between 1 and 3 p.m. as we celebrate another Apple Week tradition: Diversity Day! Apple are so diverse. There are so many flavors, colors, textures and sizes, which is why they make such a deliciously fun object lesson on the value of diversity.
ILLiad Quickens Interlibrary Loan Process
ILLiad, a resource management software system that libraries use to automate a lot of their interlibrary loan processes, is up and running at Southworth Library Learning Commons. Our patrons have always been able to borrow books, articles and other circulating materials from outside libraries using an online request form on our website. The new system ensures patrons will receive their materials as fast as possible by putting their request directly into the ILLiad system. First-time users will have to fill in their account data, including NetID and contact information, which takes only a moment. Patrons may access ILLiad through the library home page. Alternatively, they may wish to go directly to WorldCat (a world-wide library catalog that is available online) to request materials through interlibrary loan. You may access WorldCat on our A to Z Databases page of the library research guides.
