Through blood, sweat, tears (ok, not really, but it sounds dramatic), I have finally been able to get some newsletters done for my staff and students. I would love to embed them into my blog so you wouldn’t have to follow links and go through all of the extra steps, but (alas) it will not work in WordPress. Sorry. Smore.com does a great job. I, of course, wish it would work more seamlessly with My Big Campus and WordPress. The issue doesn’t seem to be with Smore.

Here is the link to my October 2014 Student Newsletter
I am doing these newsletters for a few reasons.
1. It is part of my evaluation dealing with effective communication with staff and students (state-driven evaluation).
2. It is part of my evaluation with Individual Professional Development Goals (school-driven evaluation).
3. Most importantly…I just wanted to do this. The library has so many things to offer, but I haven’t really done a good job in getting that word across to the students and staff. This is just a small step, but hopefully it’s a step in the right direction.
Onward and Upward!!
