A TOUR OF THE ROBBiNS iN THE DiGiTAL AGE
Michele Meagher says that based on a survey last spring, many visit Robbins Library regularly during its normal hours. Yet how many of you log in to the library from your computer? Do you get the same kick out of entering the library at any hour and from anywhere, that I do?
If you have let your fingers do the keyboard tapping, you may already know just how rich the Robbins database collection is. However, that's only scratching at the very tip of the proverbial iceberg. What we have available to us is far beyond the databases we are familiar with and the beloved books that fill our shelves.
What better way to kick off the new season of PLUGGED iN than with a tour of the ROBBiNS in the digital age.
Our guides will be Andrea Nicolay, assistant director of the library, and Linda Dyndiuk, head of adult services. They're both eager to share some of the new and exciting additions to the digital collection (think movies, music, books in all kinds of formats).
Here are just some of the highlights of this virtual tour. You'll learn how to:
- Get your favorite audiobook on your smartphone.
- Load up your e-reader before your next vacation.
- Brush up on your high school French through interactive movies.
- Listen to the hottest new music without having to wait on the holds list.
Join us Wednesday, Oct. 8, for an evening roaming the electronic collection. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for networking. The program will begin at 7 p.m.
