April 6 National Library Week - Careers in Libraries & Archives Join the staff of Gordon Library to learn about what sort of careers are possible in the fields of libraries, archives, and other information professions as part of this year's National Library Week celebration. Hear how we got started in the field!
April 20 Evaluating Your Sources: The CRAAP Test and More Has a friend ever sent you an article that seems fishy?
