Scout Report

Friday e-mails aren’t always welcome as we try to empty our inboxes before the weekend.  But one Friday e-mail that I look forward to receiving is the Scout Report.  This University of Wisconsin-Madison curated resource is “one of the Web’s oldest and most respected current awareness services. Published every Friday since 1994, it is received by more than 50,000 readers every week.”  It is a great way to stay informed about valuable online resources.  Sign up for the always interesting Scout Report.

Classics at the library

By Janelle Yahne
Library Circulation Associate

After weeks of reading textbooks, it is time to curl up with something fun to read. How about a classic? The library is home to numerous classics, including banned books, old and new. Here are two of my favorite classics to get into the mood for leisurely reading.

Emma is a wonderful light read and great introduction to Jane Austen’s writing. This might cause a small controversy, but I enjoyed this book more than Pride and Prejudice. I even enjoyed the movie adaptation of Emma, starring Kate Beckinsale. The book is available as an eBook (through Modern Library, Penguin Books, and Project Gutenberg), a physical book, and as another BBC movie version from the 1970’s.

A Room with a View makes me dream about Italy. E.M. Forster, also known for Howard’s End, has a light writing style, floating the reader around Italy as the main character gains her independence. This book is available as a physical book, eBook, and as a Merchant/Ivory film starring a young Helena Bonham Carter. We do not have the film, but it can be found in MeLCat and sent to the library!
