About this Blogsphere:

This blogsphere attempts to capture, catalog and share resources relating to visual perception of information. It is about a world mostly dealing with Physical (Touch, Taste, See/Sight, Smell and Hear) and sometimes Metaphysical (and that is none-of-the-above category). Physical, for instance, touch (e.g., feel, felt, found), look and visualization, is here with an attempt to combine verbal, vocal and visual--to synchronously see, hear, share and do much more. Interestingly, in order to visualize one does not need special skills, competencies, etc. It is all about common sense, especially with human visualizations. In short, "information is in the eye of the beholder." Continue reading much more all-ado-about this Blogosphere

  • Add your name to the Popular Reading waiting list

    Have you been waiting to catch the latest best-seller on the popular reading shelf, but someone else seems to beat you to it every time? A new feature has been added to the online catalog, allowing you to request popular reading books. Previously, patrons had to ask Library staff to request these books for them.

    If the book you request is available on the shelf, Library staff will hold it in your name for one week at the Circulation Desk. If the book you request is currently checked out, your name will be placed on a waiting list, and the Library will e-mail you when the book is available for you.
