The Reference Shelf Series
Each 200-page volume provides comprehensive, balanced coverage of an issue of importance in modern society. Each volume contains 35-45 notable documents and articles (complete or abstracted) from highly respected periodicals and media outlets. In addition, the Preface introduces the reader to the topic and 5-6 chapters within the text provide readers with thoughtful guidance on how to approach a particular aspect of the topic. Each chapter’s introductory material provides guidance and guarantees success in using these carefully-selected materials. A bibliography, index and important websites enhance further research.
Meet your Library Staff
Each month we will feature a Q&A with a Buhl permanent staff member or student from the library.
Senior Student Worker Spotlight
Meet Caroline Kaucher!
What is your major? French
Do you have any post-graduation plans? I will be starting a Construction Engineering job in the DC area this December.
What is one of your favorite books and why? I just read The Color Purple by Alice Walker this past summer and it quickly became one of my favorite books. I really appreciate how Walker, from the style of writing to the characters themselves, wrote a "real" story that was up-front, in your face, and there was nothing to hide. She presents the readers with an honest portrayal of people, showing the good and the bad, but also allowing for some form of redemption for each character.
How has the library helped you during your time here at Grove City College? Working at Henry has been one of the biggest blessings at Grove City College. The people here, librarians and fellow student workers, are unbeatable and I wouldn't trade my time with them for the world. The kindness and just general care to get to know one another is something I appreciate most about this library. After graduation, I will definitely be missing all my chats with the librarians during shifts.
Buhl Library staff wish to sincerely thank Caroline for all of her hard work over the past few years while working at the library. She has been a wonderful asset to the library assisting patrons, library staff and fellow student workers with kindness, a helpful attitude, and a great sense of humor. Caroline, we wish you all the best on your next adventure! It has been a joy working beside you. Thank you for all that you do.
