Minor Library Construction

The library will be undergoing some minor renovations over the next day or two and will not be the quite place with which you are familiar. We are installing some power outlets in the floor on the 2nd floor of the library ease of patron access. We ask that you please excuse the mess and noise during this progress.

Bar Studying Extended Hours

Pig Book

Today we pass along a non-"official" source that is from the Citizen's Against Waste. The Pig Book is a 60 page or so accounting of Congressional spending as determined by their editors.

As part of sharing this resource it is important to remember the value and possible issues with unofficial sources. They can often be a place to find statistics, compilations, and materials not to be found elsewhere but use extreme caution when citing and do your best to verify the information from a more official source.

Streaming Music

A great many of our library users stay plugged into to their laptops and listen to music while studying. In attempting to assist with this I want to pass along a UBlog article of the 10 Best Streaming Music sites. The only one I am personally familiar with is Pandora (and I am a huge Pandora fan) so if you use one of these feel free to leave something in the comments.
