Make sure to check out Sunday’s edition of the Springfield Journal Register for an article about your home town library!
The Virginia Memorial Library will be giving away new books in April! Why am I telling you this in early February? Because I couldn’t keep it to myself any longer!
We are back. AND may I add ever so glad to be!!
I am really excited about 2014 at the library. We have some great programs coming up and will be working hard on getting great materials in here for your use! If you ever have any suggestions, please share! You can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, comment on the blog here, or give me a call at 452-3846. I would love to talk with you!
This email recently came through and I thought this could be a wonderful opportunity to borrow new and relevant titles in the field of nursing for any of those currently in school or brushing up on their skills.
There is a printable list of books if you follow the link listed below. Email follows:
In May, WIU was awarded a Back to Books Grant LSTA Grant through the Illinois State Library. The grant was titled Nursing Resources for a Rural Academic Library, we were awarded the maximum award of $5000. Eighty-five titles were purchased. Please take a look at the title that were purchased with Illinois state funds. These resources can be found searching through CARLI as well as through WorldCat. Please request any items that will be of use through ILL.
I created a LibGuide for this collection that offers a subject list, individual pages by subject that include the book cover and library location information with a link to our catalog and a printable list of the items purchased. Please share this with anyone that may be interested. http://wiu.libguides.com/
