3 Cheers for CC students

Students in Linda Miller's Accounting Information Systems class and Erik Kaarla's CREW2 class, thank you for your participation on Thursday the 13th and Friday the 14th as we milked those library databases! We discovered ways to find reliable and useful accounting websites and which databases can turn up valuable reports on topics ranging from physics to alien abduction. We covered the invisible web, a list of evaluation criteria to use when reviewing websites, I highlighted databases ranging from Mergent Online to MarketResearch.comAcademic, I shared my funniest (of the month) YouTube--"The Best Horse in Europe"--and we listened to Goldfinger on the library's Naxos Music Library database. I received a round of applause from the accounting students, and I saw many of Erik's students printing reports from (Yes!) library databases rather than Google (Google, of course, turned up some good reports as well). Go figure.....can life at the library get any better than that?
