Evaluating information is a core life skill academic librarians teach students. Here's the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions' (IFLA) handy tip sheet for "How to Spot Fake News."
Pressed for time? So are we, but that doesn’t change the fact that we want to read it all. A good way to read for pleasure and still fulfill an extra busy schedule is to pick up a shorter book, many of which rank among our greatest classics. Once a month, the Library will recommend a title that is 250 pages or less in order to promote leisure reading, which can help the daily grind to be—well, less grinding. Our pick for March 2017, The Abbess of Crewe, is only 106 pages—whet...her you read it over the month, or devour all it in one sitting, we hope you enjoy!
The Abbess of Crewe by Muriel Spark
Religious houses are not free from politics, especially when there is a vacant abbacy. At the Abbey of Crewe, two popular nuns rise up to become the main contenders for this important office, and not unlike some of our congresspersons, turn out to be terribly corrupt, handing out bribes and engaging in other behaviors decidedly ill-suited to religious life. When the book was published in 1974, reviewer George Stead (writing for The New York Times) connected Muriel Spark’s work with the distressing political situation in America at that time: “The setting, to mention names, is the Abbey of Crewe, the immoralities are those of Watergate.”
