What a wonderful academic year it has been at the FCO Library! It has been such a pleasure to be a part of the Family Care Office team and to manage the library’s collection.
Throughout the year, many changes and updates have been made to our library services to help meet your needs as new parents and caregivers! The layout of our LibGuide, the library’s online book and resource list, has been revised for easier navigation and resource allocation. In addition, our LibGuide now features rolling galleries of new, popular, and highly recognized books to keep you informed about bestsellers and guide your reading endeavors.
Aside from our LibGuide, you can stay up to date about the library’s collection and other library news by continuing to visit the Family Care Office’s blog Intersections, where you’ll find recent reviews of recommended books and announcements about new book arrivals!
In addition to this, we have been creating a new TipSheet for expectant parents that will soon be released, which highlights recommended books that every soon-to-be parent should read.
Finally, all of us at the Family Care Office are very excited, as this year our collection experienced a significant transformation. We are pleased to say that since last September, we have added over 90 new books to our collection, all of which have been published in the last few years.
Therefore, if you’re looking for the most up to date advice and tips on all aspects of parenting and elder care, the FCO Library should be your very first stop!
I want to thank you all for such a fantastic year. I am very sad to be leaving for the summer and will miss all of our staff and library patrons! It was wonderful meeting and assisting so many students, staff, faculty, and caregivers this year at the library!
If you still haven’t checked out our library then you’re missing out! Visit us anytime the Family Care Office is open to browse our collection and take some interesting reads home to enjoy. Also, be sure to check back for our upcoming post on suggested summer reads!
I wish you all a very happy and restful summer!
