Newsstand Spotlight: Washington Post

News Body:
This week, the library is spotlighting the Washington Post. A very popular and important newspaper, the Post is the 7th most widely circulated newspaper in the country. Due to it being located in Washington, D.C., the Washington Post places greater emphasis on national politics than perhaps any other newspaper. It has also garnered 47 Pulitzer Prizes through the years, including six alone in 2008. Through our Newsstand subscription, students can access full texts of all the articles published since 1987 as well as articles posted to the Washington Post blog since 2013.

Veterans Day

News Body:
Tomorrow is Veterans Day, so please take moment to thank those you know who put country above life. The author's own father served in Vietnam, and while he has a difficult time discussing his experiences there, he takes immense pride in serving and sacrificing so others didn't have to. This weekend, let's put aside our differences, reach across the aisle, and show our gratitude in some meaningful way.

Hidden Treasures of SHARC, Part 2

News Body:
One of the lesser-known treasures of SHARC is the Videos and Webinars section of Career Services. In the Videos and Webinars area are found previous Soft Skills webinars from this year back to 2015. If you're not aware of the Soft Skills series, we highly recommend you check it out as our Career Services team has put together a cool series helping students to develop their "soft skills" or skills such as working on first impressions, building your organizational skills, fostering a good professional attitude, and other skills useful for the workplace that are not generally taught in the classroom. There is also a link to the Professional Development series where Career Services discuss networking, dressing for success, managing stress, and resume basics, among other videos. In the Videos and Webinars section, you'll also find links to the Graduation video, a series of training videos, and a past community involvement series Career Services ran. So if you haven't seen it yet, be sure to check out the Career Services' Videos and Webinars!

Newsstand Spotlight: Roll Call

News Body:
With all the recent talk about possible tax cuts, changes to healthcare, and even the scandals, this week's Newsstand Spotlight is especially pertinent. Roll Call is a Washington, D.C. newspaper founded in 1955 devoted exclusively to Capitol Hill news such as coverage of nation-wide elections, political maneuverings, new legislature, and breaking political news. If you want to learn how recent legislature can affect areas of your interest or just want to be politically informed, Roll Call is a great resource. Through Newsstand, students can access Roll Call articles going back to 1998.

Doing It Yourself

News Body:
Sometimes, the librarians just aren't available. Maybe it's the weekend or late at night, but you still need help with the library. Maybe you're not even sure where to begin, or maybe you're the type that would rather figure it out on your own. Regardless of the reason, the Library is excited to announce a new way to Do-It-Yourself!
Library DIY is the newest piece of the IU Library, and we think it'll be the perfect tool for when you can't get ahold of the librarian. Replacing the old FAQs, DIY is an intuitive, simple to use resource that starts with 8 basic categories but branches out into more than 80 answers as you respond to prompts. We hope you find it as useful as we do! This doesn't replace the librarians, of course, we are ALWAYS happy to help, but it's good for those late nights and weekends when we're not around.
