The theme for National Library Week 2022, “Connect with Your Library,” promotes the idea that libraries are places to get connected to technology by using broadband, computers, and other resources. Libraries also offer opportunities to connect with media, programs, ideas, and classes—in addition to books. Most importantly libraries also connect communities to each other. Overall, the theme is an explicit call to action—an invitation for communities to join, visit, or advocate for their local libraries.
The College Library subscribes to Credo Reference, a database of reference sources. Credo Reference is interested in getting feedback from students on the new Credo search results page. Email by April 15, 2022.
