Besides the static links, the site will also feature a dynamic blog that will include book reviews, media center related news, information literacy tips, videos, reference resources, and more.

Finally, you’ll find several social media icons on the upper right side of the page. These will be used to keep our patrons current with what’s going on in the media center. If you have one of these social media accounts, we’d love to have you follow us.
