William Dwight Chandler, Form of 1880

By - Library Web Services / Archives Assistant May 4th, 2017

Here is a cabinet card portrait of William Dwight Chandler, a St. Paul’s School student from 1875-1881, for #throwbackthursday . A few years after graduating he became the publisher of the Concord Monitor and later in life was the Postmaster of Concord, NH. He is shown here with his high wheel bicycle – a very popular item at SPS during that time. #ohrstromlibrary #ohrstromlibrarydigitalarchives #spshistory #iamsps #throwback #tbt #pennyfarthing #highweel #bicycle #highwheelbicycle #williamdwightchandler #formof1880 #concordnh #concord #concordmonitor @concordmonitor #postmaster #cabinetcard #kimballstudio

E-Journal Finder: What is it?

By - Research & Instruction Librarian May 4th, 2011

E-Journal Finder:  What is it?

The library’s database collection provides access to tens of thousands of digital magazines, newspapers and journals.

The library’s e-journal finder is a master list of all these thousands of magazines, newspapers and journals housed within the library’s database collection.

Use the e-journal finder to determine if the library’s databases provide access to titles such as: the Concord Monitor, American Fern Journal or Western Folklore.

The e-journal finder will not only identify if and where particular titles can be found, it will also link to that same title as housed within the associated database(s).

Periodical Pick: Newspaper Feeds

Lisa Laughy – Archives Assistant

The sidebar of Ohrstrom Blog now features feeds from all of the daily newspapers that we subscribe to with the exception of The Wall Street Journal.  If you are interested in a quick headline fix take a moment to check out today’s feeds, or add these feeds to your own feed reader using the links at the end of the post.

The Wall Street Journal doesn’t offer your average RSS feed, but instead has this overly clever flashy widget / gadget.  I can’t seem to format it to fit the width of the blog sidebar, so I have put it on this post page where it can spin and whirl in all its glory. You can change news categories by clicking on “Edit” in the upper right hand corner of the widget, which makes it whiz around like a slot machine.  You can then use the up and down arrows on the bottom to scroll through the headlines. I have included a permalink to this post in the sidebar with the rest of the RSS newspaper feeds.

Add these feeds to your reader and stay in touch with world beyond Millville:
