Summer 2012 issue of eSynapse now available

logo for library newsletterThe Summer issue of eSynapse highlights two special people: Gerrie V. Barnett, College of Nursing faculty and this month’s Library Champion; and Jeff Folsom, Computer Professional and Systems Administrator for Eccles Library, who has a wealth of computer experience.

Do click on the link to the Mauger: A Father and Son Dabbling in Landscape article to see a collage of pictures of notable folks who attended the Friday afternoon reception. It was a lot of fun and instructive.

This issue includes the results of our eReader and Tablets user preference survey. Not surprisingly – the iPad was the favorite tablet and the Kindle was the favorite eReader. Click the table of contents link to learn more.

The table of contents also links to various announcements about library services (like JoVE), professional activities (NANOS, AAMC WRC, personnel transitions, library faculty output), and upcoming events and celebrations (InfoFair 2012, National Library of Medicine Changing the Face of Medicine exhibit, Library Grand Re-opening, etc.)

It is a big issue, filled with lots of information. Please enjoy the read!
