What library eCollections did you love?

  • Over 887 statistical charts retrieved using Statista.
  • Searched ArtStor 1,885 times.
  • Searched JSTOR 3,048 times.
  • Opened eBooks on the ebrary platform 6,835 times.

 

 

Collectively, you asked me more than 200 research questions, mostly via email (over 150), and also via Canvas, office hours in the Schoolhouse and in-person at the Library.

 

And finally, another year has gone by in which every SPS student has had a Ms. Sanborn research class (at least one!) during the school year.

 

I heart your research!

Your favorite Kanopy titles

By - Research & Instruction Librarian May 26th, 2016

In January 2016, the library bumped up its Kanopy educational video offerings from a few hundred to 26,000.

 

There have been 486 plays in those 5 months, totaling 8,021 minutes of viewing time.

 

 

 

What films have been most-watched in that time?

Dear Hum. V,

By - Research & Instruction Librarian May 12th, 2016

Great to see you this week!

 

I loved your mind-mapping of the ‘Scholarly Conversation.’

 

When you’re ready to leap into the academic literature, here’s the page in the research guide (screenshot below) listing four databases providing just that.

 

As always, please be in touch with any research-y queries!  I love hearing from you. 🙂
