Best of APA

This week I am going to blog about another blog because the information is so great!  Thanks to the insight of our wonderful online librarian, Elaine Settergren, I have been perusing the various "Best ofs" for APA for 2013 that this blog offers.

It is a great resource, particularly at this stage in the quarter when students are often working on final papers and projects and may need a little assistance with APA.  It offers great explanations of what APA is, FAQs about APA, and some great sample papers.

I encourage you to check out this Elaine endorsed blog post and let Elaine, Alyssa, or I know if you have any questions.

Get Puffin! The Browser of Course!

Good Evening!

As you begin to receive and play with your new iPads, I encourage you to download the free version of the web browser Puffin (like the bird) from the App store.  This great browser will work really well with the GEN resources, CampusConnect mobile site, and the best feature yet, it allows Flash items to run on your iPad, which otherwise wouldn't.

So, I strongly recommend you download Puffin as soon as you get a chance.  It'll make many applications on your iPad run smoother and more effectively.

If you have any questions on this, please let me know.
