there's a new blog on campus and it's called gleeson gleanings.
collectively written by various USF librarians, including debbie benrubi, jessica lu, debbie malone, and kelci baughman mcdowell, gleeson gleanings is off to an excellent start and promises to present "news and factual nourishment from the library’s collections and services."
the blog's scope appears to be as diverse as its authors' interests. it includes announcementy entries on topics like library hours, scheduled power outages, and job openings ("Part-Time Library Assistant IV for Digital Projects"). it includes resource information on projects like the AJCU digital repository. And it includes instructions for students on checking out DVDs and videos and instructions for faculty on ordering new journal subscriptions.
gleeson gleanings also gives us a lot of reasons to go - physically - to the library. after all, in gleeson library's thacher art gallery there's between the lines, featuring paintings, prints, photography, sculpture, installation works, and architectural and graphic design from USF faculty. there's the USF book club, which meets this coming tuesday on the second floor to discuss gabriel garcía márquez's masterpiece love in the time of cholera. and on the third floor, in the donohue rare book room, there's books (?) by poets (!), an exhibit of books made by the students in jaime robles’ MFA workshop. gleeson gleanings reminds us that the heart of campus is the library.
welcome to the blogosphere gleeson library!
