Ever wonder about keeping up with everything we have going on her in the Engineering Library? It is easy – just follow us on social media!!
Follow us on Facebook and find out about special don’t-want-to-miss events – like Pi Day! On a weekly basis we “Spotlight” resources we have – you may discover lots of resources that you didn’t know we had – and maybe didn’t even know you needed!
We also post “What will they think of next?” on a weekly basis. Find information on lots of new technology being developed and the resources we have that are directly related to these innovations. Resources that will help you learn more about the technology and give you the tools you need to be creative, explore and expand on that technology.
We also keep track of special “National Holidays” – like ‘clean your virtual desktop day,’ ‘Star Wars day,’ and ‘ chocolate day,’ to name just a few. And, yes, we do have resources about chocolate!!
Follow us on Twitter (@UIEngLib) and get brief updates on the latest happenings here at the library. We do post “Spotlight,” “What will they think of next,” and national holidays here, too, like on we do on Facebook. But since Facebook is usually more in-depth, check Twitter for those quick updates!
