Abstract

As technology progresses, what once were our libraries are now Learning Commons and Academic Resources Centers. Gone are the days of scouring through the stacks looking for books, photocopying your resources, and searching through microfiche. Librarians are very skilled professionals with a high level of aptitude for research and citing. As an English Professor my relationships with the college's librarians and even the local libraries has expanded into a partnership whereby we are able to construct and compose courses that provide students with the utmost level of productive and useful information for the classroom and beyond.
