The Official Newsletter of the FBA Library


Welcome to the first edition of the new FBA Library newsletter. I'm going to use this as a way of communicating with you information about the goings on in the library throughout the year. Included will be a few tech tips I've stumbled across, new titles I've added to the library collection, and important information about the library's digital access. If you have any questions or comments, please let me know!

See my wiki ( for a few files to help guide you through the creation of a digital field trip.
