Check This Out! — Relish: My Life in the Kitchen

Standard

If you’re looking for something to read to wind-down from the stress of the last week of classes, you should check out Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley. This book is a graphic novel memoir about Knisley’s experiences with food throughout her life, starting as a child with a mother who was a chef and a father who loves gourmet food. Though this book celebrates high-end, locally sourced foods, it’s not snobby—Knisley also describes the comfort of eating McDonald’s fries, and celebrates the act of making food together, regardless of the outcome. As a bonus, she also ends each chapter with an illustrated recipe so you can make these foods yourself!

Last chance to request books from other libraries if you need them this semester!

Standard

PLAN AHEAD! If you need any books from another college or public library, NOW is the time to order them! Some of these requests can take up to two weeks (14 days) to arrive here, so plan ahead if you have a report due, or need the items to study for exams. The longer you wait, the slimmer your chances of receiving the items on time. Please fill out an ILL request for all items needed from other libraries, or call us at 232-6125 for assistance.

We cannot order e-books from other libraries due to copyright restrictions, so make sure you’re requesting the print book format (or ask a librarian for help)!

*Articles usually take sooner to be delivered, so you still have time to order those.

“Fair Use / Fair Dealing” Week starts NOW! How can you participate?

Standard

A very important week is upon us all – it’s the “Fair Use / Fair Dealing” week which runs from February 26 – March 2, 2018.  It’s a week coordinated by the Association of Research Libraries, celebrating the importance of fair use in the United States and fair dealing in Canada and other jurisdictions. In it’s simplest terms, “fair use” and “fair dealing” are  the legal use of copyrighted materials without permission from the copyright holder under certain circumstances – something students and educators deal with on a daily basis. For more information and ideas on how you can be an active participator,  please visit their site: Association of Research Libraries
