With input from faculty we have made some some changes to our streaming video resources. As of July 1, 2018 we have access to the following:
Catherine Wong, Liaison Librarian for the School of Health Sciences, took part in a panel discussion at the Fellows Forum at the 2018 Health Literacy Leadership Institute at Tufts University School of Medicine on Health Literacy Partnerships and Collaborations. Catherine spoke about her Plain Language for Health and Medline Plus workshops she developed for students and librarians.
Farmer Dave's Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Share Outs began on June 13 and will continue until October. If you are looking for an easy way to increase your fruit and vegetable intake and support a local, sustainable farm, then visit Farmer Dave's CSA page to sign up and select Merrimack College as your pick up location. Vegetable shares are available in small and large sizes and fruit shares are also available. The full season is 20 weeks, but you can sign up throughout the season. Contact Librarian C.J. Wong at McQuade if you are looking to share a share.
Congratulations to Librarian C.J. Wong for celebrating 5 years with the Merrimack community, as well as Access Services Manager, Chris Condon, and Acquisitions and Serials Specialist, Chris Coflan for celebrating 15 years! Thanks for your dedication and all your hard work. The time you put in and the thoughts and ideas you bring to the table do not go unnoticed- we appreciate all that you do!
Kathryn Geoffrion Scannell and Lyena Chavez contributed a poster at ACRL's 2018 New England Chapter Annual Conference held in Plymouth, Massachusetts in May. The conference's theme was "Failing Forward: Experimentation and Creativity in Libraries." The poster entitled "Pivot, and Pivot Again: Ever-Nimble Library Leadership" highlighted examples of "pivoting" in response to space-re-purposing and evolving curricula, and showcased unexpected opportunities for collaboration.
Merrimack has a new Overdrive site which highlights Overdrive titles of specific interest to Merrimack. Merrimack users will have prioritization on holds for select titles purchased with McQuade funds, for titles such as Tattoos on the Heart and Betsy Myer's Take the Lead.
Log into Overdrive with your library barcode on the back of your MACKcard. And use Overdrive's Libby - the new app for downloading ebooks.
Keep your eyes peeled for our awesome book displays this Fall! Past displays included: Pride Month, Library Recommendations, The Great American Read (PBS), Social Justice Week, and Banned Books.
