Did you know that the Washington University Libraries are giving away cash prizes of $1,000 and $500 to the students who write the best short essays about their own personal library of books? Any full-time WU student—grad or undergrad—may enter to win. There’s no restriction on subject matter. Any collection of books will do as long as it reflects your personal interests. The competition deadline is Monday, March 2 at 5:00 p.m. For official rules, entry forms, and examples of past winning essays, visit the Libraries’ website at http://library.wustl.edu/neureuther or pick up an entry form at the Olin Library checkout desk.

Please send me a list of books you would like placed on reserve. If you are keeping the same books for spring that you used for fall, let me know. You can use the Online Reserve Request Form, send me an email, or put a note in my mailbox. If you are making a web page for your class, you can link your page to the class' reserve list after I put the books on reserve. There is no need to retype them. Just ask me if you have any questions.
Over 1,000 popular Hollywood feature films, from Criterion On Demand, have been added to our catalog. These are streaming files, requiring Silverlight (which is probably not availalble on older Macs) and a good Internet connection, but they can be used off-campus with WUSTL key authentication. Our catalog entries are very simple; they can be searched by title and genre/summary keywords, but not by standard subject headings or credits that you might expect. This is a pilot subscription arrangement through Spring, 2015. For more information, see the blog post here.
