Hi, my name is Ed Eckel and I am a new engineering and applied sciences librarian at Waldo Library, Western Michigan University. This is a new blog that will primarily be for communicating new engineering information to students and faculty of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. However, if I see really interesting news in the applied sciences or that deals with science/engineering librarianship, I will probably post that information here also. I’ve learned alot from many other science/engineering blogs, so it is now my turn to pass that information on. Plus, I would like to experiment with sending out current awareness information via this blog rather than through email newsletters.
Anyway, whoever is reading this, I hope to meet you someday and share ideas regarding engineering education and how the Library can be an integral part of introducing engineering students to the literature of their field.
