Dear Journalism Faculty,
Thank you for allowing me to visit with you last month to talk about e-books and their compatibility with tablets and other mobile devices. I enjoyed meeting everyone and finally being able to put faces to email accounts. Spotlighted in this edition of the newsletter is a LibGuide dedicated to faculty members. This is a general guide for faculty in all disciplines, so please take a look and if there is anything that you think should be added, please let me know. Also, just a reminder there are guides like this available for the School of Journalism as well, so if there is any topic or specific class that you would like a guide for, please contact me. I hope everyone's semester continues to go well and feel free to contact me anytime about any research or library needs you may have.

The Listener Historical Archive
This is a really interesting product that I think could be good for exploring the history of broadcasting. The Listener was a weekly publication, established by the BBC in 1929 as the medium for reproducing radio - and later, television - programs in print. It is our only record and means of accessing the content of many early broadcasts. Click here to access.

|Now there's an easier way to request items from the Library Annex
Have you noticed a location that says "Columbia Annex" in the online catalog? Don't let that stop you from requesting those items. The Library Annex provides a solution to the overcrowding at our libraries through the use of high-density storage. All the items stored at the Annex can be easily requested online through the catalog. Items can be delivered to Thomas Cooper Library for checkout or, if the requested item is an article, can be scanned and delivered directly to your desktop.
Click here to find out how to use the new request process.
