Selfies in the Stacks

I wanted to let you know about my new Tumblr "Selfies in the Stacks" at . The idea of this Tumblr is to encourage students to experience the joys of seeing actual, physical books in the library.

Science of the Olympic Winter Games

Another Olympics games means a new installment of the National Science Foundation's "Science of Sports" series: Science and Engineering of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games! Each of the ten episodes presents Olympic athletes and the science and engineering concepts that underlie their performance. It's a great way to learn more about top NSF-supported research and the real-life applications.
