Fall Semester 2008 - Welcome Back!

Welcome back Art faculty!

It's a new fiscal year, which means we have money budgeted to spend on library materials that support your classes. I'll be posting reviews of books and other media on this blog throughout the upcoming academic year. Please let us know if there's anything you think we should add to the library or instructional media collections.

Since the first of the year, we've added 48 items to the Art section of our collection (the Ns). If you're interested I can email you a list of the all the new art titles.

This semester we've started using a new feature of our online catalog called "Featured Lists." We've been able to pull a group of catalog records into a live list that connects directly to the individual cataloging records. You can check out our first six featured lists on the Alpine Campus Library page of the CMC Virtual Library. The Make a Purchase Suggestion link is located directly above the featured lists.

Please notice the New Instructional Media featured list. These items were purchased to support your classroom instruction. They are sorted by locally assigned call number and general subject area. (The art videos display first) .

The Eco Focused Resources are titles we selected this year to support the greening of our curriculum. This Featured List is sorted first by item type (books before DVDs) and then by Library of Congress call number so similar subject areas are listed together.
