Hats off to Stanford’s own Andrew Luck for promoting the love of reading. Mr. Luck has started a book club via social media. He plans to introduce a book he enjoyed as a child for younger readers, as well as a book for more seasoned readers. According to his web site he’ll introduce a new book in stages that correspond with the NFL schedule: off-season, mini-camp, summer training and pre-season. He plans to bring in guest athletes to take over until after the Super Bowl. Participants may follow along on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter using #ALBookClub.
This month, Stanford Libraries posted two new videos on its YouTube channel. They are targeted for new undergraduate students, and have been introduced this term to the Program in Writing and Rhetoric (PWR) students, who come to the library for workshops on information literacy. These videos are part of the department of Learning and Outreach's effort to "flip the classroom".
