Update on Library Barcodes

Beginning Summer Semester, 2008, AUM Library patrons (faculty, staff, and students) will begin using their new Senator ID based barcodes. This new barcode replaces the old, SSN-based barcodes, and will be used for logging in to the library’s databases, for placing requests through the online catalog, and for checking out and renewing items.
These barcodes consist of a 20, followed by the Senator ID, followed by a zero (0) at the end. If you do not know your Senator ID, please go here to look up your Senator ID (please note: this page is Maintained by IT Services. If you encounter problems with looking up your Senator ID, please contact the IT Services HelpDesk at 244-3500).
If you have any questions about the library barcode changeover or need help logging in to the library’s materials, please feel free to contact Tim Bailey at tbailey1@aum.edu for more information.

Recipe for Reading

If the phrase “culinary mystery” conjures up the image of a search through your cupboards for that elusive spice, then you have not been introduced to a reading delight. A culinary mystery is just want you would think, a mystery developed around cookery. One of the best authors of this type of mystery is Diane Mott Davidson. Her heroine is a caterer named Goldy Bear Schulz who seems to always find herself in the middle of a mystery as well as a catering job. The books are “G rated” page-turners, and they even include recipes! Three of Davidson’s books, Dark Tort, Double Shot and Sweet Revenge are available in the Browsing Collection at the AUM Library. The books are on the second floor and are arranged in alphabetical order by author. If you find you like these mysteries, check your local public library for other titles by Davidson such as Dying for Chocolate and Chopping Spree. Ask your local librarian or check the Internet for suggestions of other culinary mystery writers. We love to recommend a good book! Library folks who recommend Davidson’s books include Betty Tims, Barbara Hightower, Diane Westfall, and Lucy Farrow.
Bon Appetit and Happy Reading!
