I've got four things for you in this edition of Mantor Monday. First, a pair of new tutorials to help you with your research. The first tutorial covers primary sources. What is a primary source? If your professor tells you to use primary sources, where would you look? How would you access a primary source? Would you know how to evaluate a primary source? If you need the answers to any of these questions, (or if you just want to tool around in some interesting hisory websites), take a look at this tutorial libguide:

The second new tutorial covers scholarly sources. What are they? How do you find scholarly articles in the databases or on the web? What's the difference between a scholarly journal and a magazine? All this and more is covered here:

The second item on the list is....new books and movies! Yay! Don't you just love the new acquisitions list? I sure do. Go to the library's What's New page, and then click on "New Acquisitions". That will bring up a list of 266 brand spanky new items - all for you. You're welcome.
Third on the list: Food for Thought Films. Tuesday the 12th we'll be showing the last film of the series in Lincoln Auditorium, 7pm. It's called Good Food. It's about good people producing good food in good ways. It's all good. And if you can't make it Tuesday night, as always we will encore the movie here in the Mantor browsing room Wednesday at 2 and 6 pm.
Lastly, I want to give you a head's up on the library hours for spring break week:
