CMS Library Newsletter

What's new in the library?

What Is This?

Happy new school year! This year the library staff will keep you up to date with all the latest library news. This week the newsletter is compiled by Bonnie Echmalian, assistant at Peabody. *Fun fact - Bonnie "starred" in an HBO commercial in the 80's.


Did you know: we added over 285 books to the collections between September 2012 and June 2013. We'll try to highlight a few in each newsletter. Here are just a few of my favorites.




Spotlight on LIBGUIDES

The CMS Libguides contain so much useful information, including our catalogues, databases, book reviews, trailers and more. The pages are updated regularly.


For example, the Citation/Noodletools page contains tutorials, directions for setting up a new account or project in Noodletools, citation worksheets, links to websites and videos about copyright laws and resources to prevent plagiarism.


The YA World page is loaded with new YA books, trailers, non-fiction suggestions, links to author websites and blogs, and links to review websites. Whew!!


Go to cms.colonial.net, select Library, select "here" to go to libguide.
