Every week this semester, we will be highlighting one of our subject liaison librarians.

Hotty Toddy Reader's Spotlight

The Hotty Toddy Reader's Spotlight is a new library video series using STUDIOone to create short book recommendations (less than 5 minutes) by members of the UM Community (faculty, staff, and students). We recognize that reading is still important and want to provide a spotlight for anyone who wants to share great books with others. We hope you can help us spread the word about this exciting project and volunteer to plug your favorite book (old or new, academic or just for fun)! While we are extremely proud of all our UM authors we do ask that volunteers not recommend their own book.
