What a week! Phoebe Mae was born on Wednesday, 11-9-11 and now home with her sister and brother. She's being pampered by lots of family locally and at a distance. We are farther away than we like, but with technology we can see her from afar. Our plan is to be all together at Christmas with our children, their spouses, and our grandchildren! What an anticipation :-)

Each semester our library provides research training for our English 102 students preparing to write their required research paper. This semester we created an online sign-up form that made contacting the students much easier. Communication with both students and faculty has been superb. Introducing the wealth of information that our students have available both on and off campus is one of the enjoyable duties that I have each semester. We set aside time for 28 workshops over a 2-week period and staff the sessions with librarians who enjoy the challenge. We are now down to the last 2 days. Fall 2011 has been a success and I look forward to recording the stats. The next added value will be a rubric to track use of resources used in the papers. Maybe next semester.

I've been reading Steven James: The Pawn, The Rook, The Knight, etc. He writes thrillers with cutting edge information.

On the recommendation of my daughter, Tricia, I'm reading Jill Ker Conway's book, The Road from Coorain, about her growing up years and schooling in Australia to be followed by True North, her memoir in the academic world of America. I borrowed both books via PASCAL, our academic library consortia in South Carolina.

Snow in Greenville, SC is quite the event. We just received an emergency call saying that the campus is closed! Woohoo! We can enjoy the 6+ inches from our warm apartment :-) In a city that rarely gets more than a dusting, this is quite the snow emergency. Even though we as northerners think we know how to drive, we don't want to be on the road with those who don't!!! I just saw a semi stop on the side of the road. The snow is now coming down heavy again; I'm curious to find out how much we'll actually get.
Happy Birthday, Darrell
