Introducing: University Libraries Blogs!

Hunt Library

Welcome to the University Libraries Blogs! These blogs arose out of a need to create an online venue for our on-staff experts to do a deep dive into their topics of interest. Unlike the News section of our website, which offers timely updates of events and services, the blogs are a space for specialists to post what’s current or noteworthy in their subject areas, providing readers with an expert’s view of library services and collections.

We’ve organized this blog into nine blog channels. A blog channel is like a television channel in that it presents curated content around a specific theme. Read on for a description of each of our blog channels and make sure to subscribe to our RSS Feed to make sure you don’t miss a post!

  • Back in the Stacks – Sure, you’ve heard of the current bestsellers, but what about books from previous years that you never had a chance to read? Rediscover some great titles you may have missed.
  • dSHARP – The dSHARP center, co-sponsored by the University Libraries and the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences, promotes innovative digital research by connecting scholars to collaborators and resources; researching original questions relevant to the arts, humanities, and sciences; and educating the community about digital tools and research methods.
