As you are reading this, regular classes will soon be over and finals will begin. For those of you who have some last-minute assignments or who have begged extensions on papers, the library is open with librarians standing by to provide research help. Our electronic databases with full text options may be the best way to find those last minute sources.

Whether you love your local library, come in only when you need help with research, or just view the library as an electronic database aggregator, we hope that you will help us celebrate National Library Week during April 13-19, 2014. The honorary chair of this year’s national committee is Judy Blume, well-known for her juvenile fiction that contains a blunt treatment of the social problems that are faced by young people today. Some of her most famous works are: Are You There God, It’s Me, Margaret, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, and Blubber.
