What is your favorite JWU memory?
Seeing the manatees in the canal behind JWU!
What is your favorite Tech tool?
Cell phones and all their expanding capabilities.
What library resource do you find most helpful?
I enjoy using the databases and the LibGuides, and since both are online, it makes research accessible both in the library and remotely. My favorite resource when I was in graduate school in Ohio was interlibrary loan because I could order obscure sound recordings and music scores from all over the state.
What is your favorite website?
YouTube -- I can listen to musicians, lectures, interviews, comedians, watch sports highlights and funny animals, and learn new skills all in one place.
