Did you know there is a new book display in the library now? One of these new books is So You Want to Be a Teacher?: Teaching and Learning in the 21st Century, by Janice Koch (call # LB1775 .K635 2009). Are you thinking about a teaching career? Check this book out. (Another great resource for guidance in any career choice is the Occupational Outlook Handbook.)

The second is an eBook titled Reform of Eyewitness Identification Procedures by Brian L. Cutler. The author looks deep into the issue of eyewitness identifications. Are you interested in psychology or a career in justice administration? You might find this book helpful. To find it, search in the APA PsycNET database, choose PsycBOOKS at the top, and set your search for book title.

New Student Art for the Library!

 This is one of our favorite days of the year. Why? Library staff members get to shop for student art at the Spring Fling Art Show! We love supporting VWCC student artists. These two new works of art will grace the library permanently. Congratulations to Caitlin Smith (“Utada Hikaru” Mixed Media) and George Kelly (“Tone Study II” Painting).
