Librarians @ Colloquia

Colloquia_logo We are busy this month in the Library. A number of us attended the Colloquium in Lansdowne in early October and new a couple other librarians are packing their bags for Orlando next week.

At each Colloquia we teach sessions about the Library and scholarly research including the informal brown bag session called Librarian’s Cool Tools. In the session, we demonstrate a cool tool we have been using such as RSS feeds, WorldCat (www.worldcat.org), podcasts, and social bookmarks (like del.icio.us).

The other major thing we do is to meet one-on-one with students about their topics. It is great to talk with students that we usually just talk to over the phone or via email. If you are a PhD student on your way to Colloquia stop by the Library and say “hello”.
