Quarterly Faculty Newsletter Spring 2011

  1. 1. Harrison College Spring Quarter Fort Wayne Campus April—May—June 2011 LRC Corner FACULTY QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER From the Librarian’s Desk: Hello again from the LRC! We are getting ready for the Spring Quarter, and there are several points of interest that I want to make sure all of you are aware of. LRC Classroom Visits Will your class have a research project? Will your students be using online resources of ANY kind (or print for that matter)? If so… the LRC can help! We are committed to help- ing your students succeed in their classes, and part of the help we provide can be in the form of classroom visits. Cammi and I can tailor a presentation specifically for your needs—but we have to know in plenty of time in order to adequately prepare… and even though there is now an Information Literacy class on campus, that still doesn’t take the place of classroom visits! Book your classroom session today by stopping by the LRC. LRC Resources We have many new titles that will be cataloged for the LRC collection in the coming weeks. Please feel free to use these resources yourself, and pass along the titles to your students also. Titles include (a full list will be e-mailed to everyone when we have received the entire shipment): * HIPAA For Medical Office Personnel * Psychology DeMystified * Step-By-Step Medical Coding 2011 Edition * Medical Assistant: Preparation for the CMA and RMA Exams * Professional Review Guide for the CCS Examination NEW STREAMING ONLINE * Career Development for Health Professionals: Success in School & on the Job VIDEOS * Microsoft Word 2010 Plain & Simple We now have access to Films On * Microsoft Excel 2010 Plain & Simple Demand that give you, as instruc- tors, access to online streaming vide- Here’s to a GREAT Spring Quarter! os (better than youtube!)
