By Candice Benjes-Small - Head of Research

 

Who needed help: Dr. Rowan Lockwood, Professor and Chair of Geology

Librarian problem solver: James Glosson, Collections and Discovery Librarian

Problem: Dr. Lockwood wrote to Candice Benjes-Small, Head of Research, to ask if we could find a reduced price for Dinosaurs: A Concise Natural History for her class in the fall. Candice referred her to James.

Solution: James searched our book vendor and discovered an e-book version was available in an earlier edition. Even better, further investigation by James revealed that W&M Libraries had the title in a couple of existing packages. Dr. Lockwood’s 100 students will be able to download the book in PDF at no cost to them!

Response: “Thanks so much for your help!”
