Cushing Library Hawk Squawk for 2-17-2010

Dan Schmidt's Reading

Dan Schmidt's Reading

A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL (or should we say, “Oh Bacon, My Bacon”): Last week’s reading event at the library was a great success! Thanks to the many folks who showed up (especially the author, Dan Schmidt). See more pictures on Flickr.

WEB OF SCIENCE DEMO On Monday, February 22 12:30 – 1:00 PM, faculty members and anyone else interested are invited to a webinar demo of Web of Science, which offers strong citation linking and “authoritative, multidisciplinary coverage from nearly 9,300 of the highest impact journals worldwide.” Attend this demo in the library training room (no RSVP necessary, just show up), or email Karen ( for instructions on how to access the Webex demo from the comfort of your home, office, or even your iPhone.

RESOURCE OF THE WEEK: When you have an exact citation for a journal article you need, or you want to browse an entire issue of a journal, get to it quickly with the Journals by Title feature in the Library Information Portal. (Journals by Title is also handy when you are waiting for a journal or magazine that hasn’t arrived; who wouldn’t be the first on the block to read Management Secrets of the Grateful Dead?)


There’s still space in the next Faculty Development workshop on file management (Thursday, February 18, 12:30-2 in the Technology Support Center, Brennan 80), so contact Nicole Greenland at to sign up.


  1. We have a small card catalog with one broken leg. Since this one is damaged we’d prefer to just give it to someone rather than sell it damaged or try to fix it. Great for crafts and hobbies!
  2. We also have several small bookcases, nice sizes for offices.

Email Karen at if you’d like these, or call or stop by.  First come, first served!
