coffeebreakFaculty & Staff Campaign Update
Thank you to all who have participated in our annual faculty and staff giving campaign so far. We are now four weeks in and currently more than 35 percent of our faculty and staff have given during the campaign. Your gifts send a powerful message to other donors and your generosity inspires them to continue supporting Averett and our students.

coffeebreakCool Tools in the Library
The library has cool tools for selecting new and notable interdisciplinary and curriculum-related books. Check out the Fiction Connection, Nonfiction Connection and Books in Print 2.0.

Developing library collections for an academic program? Search in Choice Reviews Online, or create a personal log in and custom profile by subject, reading level and level of recommendation in choice reviews. Sign up to receive monthly reviews in your profile via email.

Averett librarians invite faculty, staff and students to participate in book selection. To recommend a title, email a citation to the liaison librarian for your academic program, or to libselect@averett.edu. Be sure to send a complete citation with ISBN number.

For serendipitous discoveries over morning coffee, we offer a web order form under the new sources tab discover.averett.edu/library. There is no need to complete the form if you download and email a citation from Books in Print or Choice Reviews.

Happy reading!


coffeebreakPlanning for Retirement?
Whether you're older and looking to retire soon or are younger and have just started your career, everyone wants to know they will be able to retire in style. The hard part is knowing how to do it. On Wednesday, Nov. 9 you're in luck! From 4-6 p.m. in the conference room on the fourth floor of the Student Center, some experts will be on hand to talk about a retirement planning program. Topics include retirement funds, long-term care and Medicare. Companies that will have representatives on campus are Millenium Advisory Services Inc., BB&T Insurance Services and Valic Financial Advisors Inc. The representative from Valic will only be available at 5:30 p.m. for a general session.
