Google Something Beautiful

A few years ago Google quietly unveiled a new search tool, Google Cultural Institute, which lets you search, explore, save, organize, and share images of art and culture from around the world. It’s really quite beautiful, and could offer inspiration or topics for students writing about fine art, history, and many other topics. Check out the video above, or go to http://www.google.com/culturalinstitute.

There will drop-in help tonight in Digregorio library. Our fabulous line-up includes Foundations of Math peer tutor Stephanie Lewis, social scientist and ASC staff member Trish Moore, and Gladys Nielsen, the very able and helpful research librarian who captains the reference desk most nights here on the Rindge campus.

Staff from the DiPietro Library and the Center for Academic Excellence are hosting drop-in hours on Tuesday evenings 7-8 pm for the rest of the semester (April 27, and May 4) to help students with library research and to provide support for students at all stages of the writing process.

For those that can’t attend in person, the reference librarian remains available during other regular reference desk hours by IM, email, and phone. Visit http://library.franklinpierce.edu/research/askalib.html for more information. For students at CGPS campuses, the Wensberg Writing Center is available by email.
