Ready for a little escape reading? We’ve refreshed our collection of popular books in the library and in our tablet-friendly Overdrive collection (http://hnu.lib.overdrive.com ). (The Cuckoo’s Calling? Yes, we have it in paper and as an ebook!) If you’d like to recommend books for us to buy, see the “Recommend a Purchase” form on our website.
Ready to stop being frustrated by APA/MLA citation? Then you need to attend:
NEW! Text, chat, or email a librarian! Get your research help online from wherever you happen to be. From our main webpage (Cushing Library) see the grey “Ask a Librarian” tab on the right. You can also text the librarians from your phone at 510-746-8103. They will respond to chats and texts right away when the desk is covered (most afternoons and evenings) and within a day or two when it’s not.
New education resource! The Teacher Apprenticeship Program (TAP) grant has graciously underwritten the annual license for Education Source, a much more robust version of Ebsco’s Education Full-text, with Lots More Stuff. See it on our databases page: http://hnu.libguides.com/databases (also linked from our main page, Cushing Library).
VALENTINE’S DAY LUNCHTIME DESSERT CONCERT
When/Where: Thursday 2/14, 12:30 – 1:30 PM, Library Piano Lounge
HNU’s campus webmaster, Jesse Loesberg, has rolled out a spiffy new public events calendar with several delightful features, including the ability to sign up to send yourself an event reminder. See the links under each event below. Big thanks to Jesse!

Wed, January 30, 2013 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
EVEN MORE BOOKS: Yet more bestsellers and annual “notables” are here — and we are offering extended holiday checkouts. Library books, DVDs, and board games you check out or renew from now through December 20 will not be due back until Monday, January 14, 2013.
Also visit our Overdrive collection at http://hnu.lib.overdrive.com to see the newest additions to our tablet- and Kindle-friendly ebook service — books you can check out any time, any place!
Recent purchases: the Library just purchased 5 Overdrive ebooks by Mo Yan, winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize for Literature. His titles are hard to come by in print, but we were able to acquire these ebooks immediately, including the novels Life and Death are Wearing Me Out and The Republic of Wine. Find these and more good books to read at http://hnu.lib.overdrive.com — or stop in and browse our new popular reading.
