Book Madness

You’ve heard of March Madness, but this year the Nielsen Library is doing Book Madness!

We’ve selected 64 books in 4 divisions for you to vote on. Fill out your ballot by the bracket on the first floor of the library and put it in the ballot box. Or fill out our online ballot.

We’ll tabulate the results at the end of each week and the winning books will move on to the next round.

Include your name and email address on your ballot if you wish to be entered in a drawing for a copy of the winning book. Please limit yourself to one vote per round.

New Website!

The Nielsen Library’s website has undergone a significant transformation this summer, and the new and improved version went live this morning.

The navigation has changed and is now divided into 4 main categories:

I’m Looking For… is where you’ll find links to our articles, databases, books, and other resources.

I Need Help… has tutorials for using our most common databases, using the library, citing sources, and doing research.

Information For… has information about library services, including checking out books, getting materials from other libraries, and getting reference help.

About the Library has information about the library, including contact information, hours and location, and library policies.

The homepage has the same address, but the addresses for other pages have changed, so you’ll want to update any bookmarks you might have.

If you have any questions or comments about the new site, or just need help finding your way around, please fill out our Website Feedback Form.
