Scavenger Hunt Clue:  Locate Smart Suite 4 to solve the next clue!


Forecast: Changes are coming

Welcome to the updated Mother Theresa Hackelmeier Memorial Library blog! We've made some cosmetic changes, and we have some new content in store: book and movie reviews, tips for using library resources, in-depth cutting interviews with the librarians, an online suggestion form, and whatever else we think of.

Let me bring a few things to your attention. First off, you'll notice our hours are listed right at the top. Convenient, huh? Also, if you scroll down a bit in that same column, you'll notice links to the library homepage, the library catalog and course e-reserves. Click away! You'll also find the translation for the latin quote in the header, in case you're wondering what Habent sua fata libelli means.

We want this to be a blog that you check regularly. If you are interested in writing a book or movie review, contributing in some other way, or have any questions or comments, share them with us. We hope you like the new look! (And if you don't, tell us that too!)

Using Wikipedia

From an information literacy framework, what can we learn from this recent Internet hoax?

"The moral of this story is not that journalists should avoid Wikipedia, but that they shouldn't use information they find there if it can't be traced back to a reliable primary source," said the readers' editor at the Guardian, Siobhain Butterworth, in the May 4 column that revealed Fitzgerald as the quote author.

Wikipedia can be useful information tool, but only if you can confirm the information from an external primary source.
