We have updated our general library handouts during the summer, and ask you to be sure you are using the latest versions dated 2000. If you would like copies to give to your classes, just call Alice Primack at 392-2822 and let us know how many copies you need and where to send them. Handouts cover the basics of using the Libraries, WebLUIS, indexes and other databases, electronic journals, research paper strategies, and tips for evaluating a web search.

A folder of library information, including a copy of each handout, has been sent to your Department Office for your quick reference use. Feel free to call an Information Desk for more information, at 392-0361 (Humanities and Social Sciences) or 392-2836 (Sciences).

Welcome(Continued from page 1)
to become the new Dean of Libraries at the University of Arkansas. Carolyn's ten years here have spanned the gamut from two years of heavy cuts in the early 90's to the steady growth of the past few years. There is no way that we can replace Carolyn's inimitable style and humor, her grace under fire, and her practical skills at wringing the most from our resources so that the library could make some progress each year.  But, we will conduct a national search and do our best to replace her intelligence, her savvy negotiating skills, and her extraordinary contributions to the libraries. Colleagues had a chance to say good by to Carolyn at a reception in the Reitz Union August 10th. Please send her off with our warmest good wishes for a happy and rewarding new challenge.
