Congrats to Nina Slesinger and Lillie Jacobson for the snuggie-winning post in last week's Facebook contest, with 74 likes at noon on Monday. No faculty or staff posted so we awarded the bag of coffee tokens to Colin Jarvis, whose post also scored more than 70 likes. Thanks to all who submitted. Enjoy your coffee! Tokens are on their way via Mac SPO.

Did you know...

  • Most librarian positions require a 2-year graduate degree in library or information science.

  • In survey after survey, librarians report a high job satisfaction.

  • We don't shush people! (Usually, it is the librarians that need to be shushed).
