New Book Out

Embedding Librarianship in Learning Management Systems: A How-To-Do-It Manual for LibrariansYour Gardner-Harvey librarians John Burke and Beth Tumbleson have just published a new book on the information literacy work we do in the learning management system with faculty and students, available through the American Library Association store.  Embedding Librarianship in Learning Management Systems: A How-To-Do-It Manual available at

The Gardner-Harvey librarians are privileged to work with faculty who understand the importance of developing information literacy fluency in undergraduates.  This 21st century skill strengthens academic achievement and prepares Miami University students to succeed in the workplace.  Now librarians worldwide are adopting this innovative method of delivering library resources and services to students within the LMS, whether they are registered for online, hybrid, or traditional courses.

Library materials added in May

To bring you up to date on what has recently been added to the collection, a new materials list is now available that reflects additions during May. We added 154 books, DVDs, and other items during that time, thanks to your selections and suggestions. The list is sorted by call number, with items grouped roughly by subject area.  

This tag will show you all of the prior lists of new materials.  

Have a suggestion of something to order? Use our online request form, email Jennifer Hicks or one of our other staff members, or drop by the library with your request at any time.  We are wrapping up our ordering for this fiscal year, but if funds do not remain to purchase an item we can hold your request until after July 1 when we receive our new budget. 

We've added 1171 items to the collection so far this year, and I expect we'll end up at around 1200 items once all ordered items are received.

Thanks again for keeping our collection vibrant and your information needs met!
