Library News | August 2016

In this issue: 

Graham Library with Pidgey

In the last few weeks a lot of ink has been spilled trying to make sense of the current Pokémon Go phenomenon.  One of the best insights I’ve seen is that players of the game naturally expect that everything they need to succeed can be accessed on their device. This has interesting implications that go beyond the game.
 
This expectation increasingly informs our users’ expectations of how they access the resources they need to succeed academically. The Library’s challenge is make as much as we can available to our students on the devices they use, while at the same time ensuring that important print materials that require a bit more effort to access remain in the student’s consciousness. After all, unlike a game, success in academics will always require looking beyond what is easy to find.
  
In this month’s Newsletter we provide more detail on our course reserve services - including digitization of class readings for easier access. We also highlight more gems in our collections – gems that do require a visit to our Library or Archives in order to fully appreciate their value.

John Papadopoulos, Nicholls Librarian & Director

New this year: Course reserves online

The Graham Library is pleased to offer processing of electronic course materials for the upcoming academic year. To make your course readings available electronically via Blackboard, send your syllabus to our Courses Reserves Coordinator, Lia Ferrari at lia.ferrari@utoronto.ca by Sunday, August 21 to guarantee processing for the start of the semester. If you have questions about this new service, you may also contact Lia. Our existing services for print materials on course reserve are still available. We look forward to hearing from you!
