Lorraine Casey, Head of Acquisitions, has worked in the library since 1998. During that time she helped order and process 213,000 books, eBooks, VHS, DVDs, Cassettes, LPs, CDs, magazines, journals, microfilm, microfiche, bound periodicals,dissertations, slides, kits, games, manipulatives, textbooks, puppets, costumes, 2D, 3D, tests, and other formats you can't even imagine.
Lorraine came in with a typewriter and the card catalog and will be leaving with cloud based library automation. She has also weeded and discarded over 13,000 outdated titles and engaged in countless inventories..She has handled bills and renewals, correspondence, opened and closed the library, and worked the front desk. She also helped move the Olin D. Johnston Memorial Library to the Thrift Building in 2006. Throughout this time her smile and helpfulness has been one of the library's greatest strengths.
If you would like to stop by Technical Services to wish her well, her last day will be January 16. Lorraine works Mon- Thurs.

Have you told your students?
Which do you use more often to find and retrieve full text articles and eBooks? Google Scholar or the Thrift Library’s OneSearch? If your answer is Google Scholar, you are looking in the wrong place!
FYI - The Thrift Library has access to 260,00 streaming videos via a half dozen vendors. Some are free. Others cost between $135 and $135 per year. All you have to do is find the one you want and load the link into Canvas. The library does the rest - including paying for them!

The HeinOnline databases supports legal research in Business, Political Science and Criminal Justice. Beyond US Codes, law reviews, case law, and Supreme Court decisions, it also has a number of special collections including:
Last month HeinOnline added a new impeachment collection to the U.S. Presidential database. This collection now includes President Donald Trump, as well as access to the whistleblower documents.
Last year the library added JLG - Junior Library Guild - an inexpensive rotating collection of about 30 children's eBooks. Now the Junior Library Guild has backed out of the eBook market.
