We hope you all enjoyed the Thanksgiving break. As we head into the final stretch of the semester, we’d like to remind you of just a few ways that the library can support your work.
Research Appointments! Are you working on a research project this semester? Why not talk to a librarian about research strategies? Librarians are available to discuss your work at any stage of the research process, from developing your research question to organizing your findings. Sign up for a half-hour appointment here.
Research Help on the Web. The library website has a collection of help menus, subject guides and tutorials to help you get started.
As always, librarians are available to work with you at the reference desk during library hours.
Ever wondered why you feel so tired on Thanksgiving?
If that’s not enough, you can learn about the history of food and holiday traditions by visiting our e-book collections!
Have a great weekend. We’ll see you when the library reopens on Monday, Nov 26th.

Mastering library tools and resources can take time. If you are stuck, or if you’re not sure where to get started, take a minute to look through our growing list of tutorials! We are working to develop and expand our collection of online tools, so let us know what kind of online research support YOU would like to see on the library website!
Contemporary computer art, fine art, and archaeology/anthropology-related collections highlight recent additions to ARTStor. Text below from ARTStor has been edited for brevity.
Rhizome ArtBase: a Web-based archive of works that employ technologies in significant ways and contains more than 2,500 artworks by artists from around the world who use materials such as code, software, websites, games, and browsers to aesthetic and critical ends.

Last Tuesday, November 5, 2012, we presented a workshop entitled Strategizing the Literature Review and Identifying Publication Venues for the NYCCT Faculty Commons in their series on publishing teaching and learning research. We are pleased to share our slides as a .pdf.
Have you voted yet? Do you know where your polling place is? If you are unsure, or if your polling place has changed due to the aftereffects of Hurricane Sandy, it’s not too late! To find out where YOU can vote, simply type your address in to the NYC Board of Elections Poll Site Locator to find out where to go.
Reminder: Anyone who is registered to vote in NYC is entitled to vote in NYC. If you arrive at a polling place and your name IS NOT on the books, ask to be given a PROVISIONAL BALLOT. You will be able to submit your vote, which will be filed with the appropriate jurisdiction. If you are told otherwise, speak to a manager or look for an election observer outside of the polling place.
If you couldn’t make it to our faculty workshop on Understanding and Protecting Your Rights as an Author during Open Access Week, never fear! Here’s a copy of our handout and presentation for you to share, use, and remix as you’d like.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask a librarian! We’re happy to help with any and all questions about open access publishing and strategies for keeping your rights as an author.
It’s that time of year again. Don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour this coming Sunday, November 4th.
