Trexler Library Scuttlebutt

Biweekly Update from the Library

Recent Developments


At the annual NITLE conference in San Francisco last week, Joyce Hommel and Jen Jarson presented a well-attended poster session titled “Developing an Integrated Approach for Information and Technology Success.”

Their attendance at the conference also provided an opportunity to explore the possible ways that the college might benefit from resumed membership in NITLE, an organization specifically geared toward the needs of liberal arts colleges.

Try when researching real estate values.

Zillow will help you find property values (est.) when comparing home prices in your own neighborhood or most anywhere in the country. At the website, just type in a residential address and then move the cursor over the satellite image to reveal prices.
