Corrected DEWEY award nominees list

My bad.

I left off Karla Duran, instead substituting the person who nominated her for the award, Kathy McCloskey. Kathy was kind enough to point out my mistake; she gets a special award in my book.

So here is the corrected final list:
Congratulations to the following faculty members were nominated by students, staff or faculty to receive the 2012 Butler Libraries "DEWEY" Award:

Freda Briggs, Susan Cecil, Susan Forrest, Ron Garber, Karla Duran, Troy Nordman, Michelle McClendon, Matt Webster and Bernie Wonsetler

Please join us in applauding their efforts and awarding the final winner during Spring 2011 Institutional Development Day Thursday, April 5, 2012.

Best Fictional Bookstores in Pop Culture

From Shelf Awareness:

Flavorwire showcased the "10 best fictional bookstores in pop culture," noting that "being as pop culture-minded as we are, we've found that we like the fictional shops almost as much as those we can visit in real life."

Happy Birthday, Dr. Suess

The celebration of the birthday of dear Dr. Seuss continues, I'm happy to report.

And The Lorax comes out today.. perhaps I'll head to the Warren Theatre to research the quality of the production.

Meanwhile, meet our own Dr. Seuss, a jolly Hypostomous plecostomus, in the library fish tank.
