Greetings Fielding Library Users,
Hasn’t this year flown by? It’s hard to believe that it’s just about time for another Winter Session. As always, your friendly librarians will be on-site to provide instruction and reference assistance.
Can’t make it to one of our classes but have a burning library question (or ten)? We can still help! Feel free to email the library in advance or drop by the reference desk in the registration area to schedule a time to meet. We’ll be available for appointments from Thursday-Saturday during SLS week, and from Monday-Wednesday during Psych week. If for some reason we can’t meet during session, remember that we are always available to schedule a Zoom meeting!
If you’re chomping at the bit for some nerdy library-related news, why not check out Altmetric’s Top 100 of 2016? Altmetric does a lot of work to track how research is talked about in the news and on social media, and each year they bring you the 100 most-discussed articles of the year based on those metrics. In this year’s list you’ll find:
- The first academic paper published by a sitting President
- A work investigating the link between income-level and life-expectancy
- A study investigating the relationship between cell phone frequencies and cancers in rats
- And even a work about the relationship between smart phone user and children’s sleep patterns
Plenty of interesting reading to be had!
Have a safe and happy holiday season! We’ll see you next year!
