Our Fall 2016 Edition – Best of Circulation – is now live! Thank you to all of our contributors (past and present.)
We are always excited to see students publish during their time here at the iSchool. Recently, in the Washington Library Association Journal, Alki, published an article by Tigh Bradley. The article titled “Reimagining Libraries Large and Small: The University of Washington Libraries and Yacolt Library Express” explores how different libraries work to serve their community. Bradley contemplates how population size drives library design and services provided. Read the full article here on pages 18 and 19.
Tigh Bradley is an MLIS Candidate in the iSchool and works as the Library Intern for the Templeton Radiology Library at the University of Washington Medical Center.
Have you been published lately? Or have any writing/presentation that you would like to share with your fellow iSchoolers? Send us an email at email@example.com and we will share it here!
As we all barricade ourselves in for some quality study time, I have a riddle for you.
What do Star Wars, the first week of break, and the deadline for Circulation submissions have in common?
Answer: They’re all next week!
That’s right, the deadline for getting your academic works or peer reviewer volunteer requests submitted is December 18. Email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and your volunteer requests to me at email@example.com.
Remember, if you’re submitting a piece for publication, it doesn’t have to be a full length thesis on the ramifications of the small-worlds theory. If you have a class assignment you think we’d enjoy, email it to us and we’ll look it over.
If you’re interested in being a peer reviewer, simply put “Peer Reviewer Volunteer” in your email subject. The first round of submissions to be reviewed will be distributed January 9. Remember, just in case getting to read and edit your peers’ work isn’t awesome enough, it also looks great on a resume!
Mark your calendars, enjoy your week, and good luck with those final projects!
Whether you are currently job searching or nearing graduation and it’s on your mind, we can all relate to the job hunt in the information and library realm. S. Williams captures this environment extremely well in her blog post “Hungry“, as well as how to keep your cool in the process.
What do you think?
We’re getting excited for this month’s One School, One Story being held online this Sunday, October 26!
If you’ve already read the story and are feeling antsy to know more, check out the author’s notes on it over at her blog:
Here, she talks about the action and dystopian themes in the story (and future novel!). She writes that , “dystopia is about perspective,” meaning that some people are already living that kind of existence. It’s all to do with technology access and literacy.

Great news! We have just imported the Tumblr blog into our WordPress site. What does this mean for you? Well, less clicking, of course!
This is all part of our effort to integrate Circulation activities to one site. Please read back through our previous posts and check back for new ones! Happy Wednesday!
