Take a Cookie Break and Check Out the New Careers & Majors Research Guide

Last month we told you about our new Careers and Majors research guide. Now we are inviting you to the Library to see it in action! If you are undecided about your major or nor sure what career to pursue, come to our Cookie Break on Tuesday, March 20, at 3:00 PM in the Library's Information Commons. Ashley Lierman, our Information Technology/Technical Services Librarian, will be on hand to walk you through the Careers and Majors guide, which will identify resources on campus, on the web, and in the Library to help you with your career and major decisions. We will be serving cookies and lemonade, and all participants will have a chance to win a $25 gift card.

New in the Library: Archives Unbound

A new resource is available on the Library's Electronic Databases page. Archives Unbound presents topically-focused digital collections of historical documents that support the research and study needs of scholars and students at the college and university level. Collections in Archives Unbound cover a broad range of topics from the Middle Ages forward-from Witchcraft to World War II to twentieth-century political history. Collections are chosen for Archives Unbound based on requests from scholars, archivists, and students. Kistler Library's collections include The Southern Literary Messenger: Literature of the Old South and The War Department and Indian Affairs, 1800-1824.
