Blogging the Library



Have you ever wondered what it's like to work in an academic library?
In Blogging the Library, Briget Creedon '14 and Molly Troy '12 dish on their experiences as Fortenbaugh Interns in Musselman Library's Music and Referece & Instruction departments, respectively. Briget discusses what it's like to take on a teaching role during a library session for one of her music classes, and Molly tells us about her experiences as a newbie at the reference desk.

Do Bridget and Molly's internships sound interesting? Stay tuned for announcements of future Fortenbaugh Internships, which are open to current Gettysburg College students. New openings are usually posted and filled each Fall semester.

Are you ready for spring break?

As spring break is approaching, keep in mind the fun things you can check out before you leave campus. The audio book collection on the ground floor next to the DVDs will help a long drive really fly by. You might also want to check out the CD collection located in the cases right before the DVDs to get your groove on in the car. If you’re looking for something fun to read, be sure to check out the Browsing Room on the main floor of the library. The collection contains many recent popular titles and all of the items check out for 28 days!

If you’re planning to be on campus next week, the library is still open for business! Come chat with a librarian if you need help with your research, or schedule a research appointment. The reference office is located on the main floor of the library and you’re welcome to come right in!
