TH_PR_080812profguidelogo.jpgWe're always excited when a mainstream news outlet talks about using the library and features all the latest ways to access the great content available through libraries.

The popular Professors' Guide blog reminded their readers last week to use e-resources, WorldCat.org (tip #3!), ILL and living, breathing reference librarians in their post, Writing a Paper? Try these 7 Research Tips.

You may remember that the Professors Guide featured ways to get more out of your college library last March (2009), so it's definitely one to watch if you have rising high school seniors or first year undergraduates in your midst!

The Library (with a capital L) was the lead Education story on the US News & World Report Web site recently. The Professor's Guide entry this week is titled "Getting the Most Out of the Library." The article is geared to help students make the most of the abundant library resources available to them and yours truly is mentioned and contributed to the content.

As you might expect, the post includes WorldCat.org and highlights some of the great ways to save time and energy doing academic research. If you know someone who is college-bound--or maybe someone who has midterm exams coming up--this could be a good article to send to them.

If you really want to help your favorite student out (after you drop numerous WorldCat.org hints), you could locate the full book Professor's Guide to Getting Good Grades in College and send them the link.
