“The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.”
― Albert Einstein
Research is a must for fiction and non-fiction writers alike, and though most people know the basic functions of a library, few know all that is available or the best way to make use of digital, historical, and special collections. Join SBWC and Thayer Memorial Library Director, Joe Mulé, for a discussion on how to make the most of your local library’s extensive print materials, technologies, and on-line resources, essential supports for your creative work. Director Joe Mulé will provide a broad overview of the bibliographic tradition of libraries in America and the challenges of retrieving knowledge in the 21st century.
