Fogler Library Faculty Newsletter | October 19, 2022
In this issue:

  • STEM in Horror!
  • Digital Commons Reader Snapshot
  • Featured Resource: HeinOnline Academic
STEM in Horror!Beginning October 17th and running through November 18th, the Science Reference Librarians at the Raymond H. Fogler Library will be hosting a display on the theme of STEM in Horror. Located in the hallway connecting the main library entrance and the Information Commons, the display will feature horror novels that employ some aspect of science. Each title will include a link in URSUS for curious readers, as well as a brief list of scientific principles employed in the novel. The goal is to celebrate the Halloween season by demonstrating how science has been used to create a suspension of disbelief in Gothic and horror stories.

For more information on science resources and instruction at the library, the science reference librarians—Lindsay Decker, Heather Perrone, and Christopher Clark—are here to help. The display books might be scary, but our librarians are not!
