*We get to see all the sections of HPHY 102 this week. I’m having them use laptops and complete challenges to find information on their topic and use some of our specialized databases.

* Where can I find these articles on handed-ness?

* Where is the ITC/photocopier?

* Where are the KCs?

* Can I check out an older edition of this geology textbook?

* How do I use Interfolio for letters of recommendation

* Where are those reference books that are in multiple volumes and start Langen… something? (Landolt-Börnstein and Springer currently has a free electronic index for them here:

My how time flies.

*What American Sign Language DVDs are good for learning sign? [Actually that’s my own question. But, I’m asking it and will post answers as I can.]

*Do you have a book on Excel ™ that can help me with a Chi squared analysis? [A trick question, SPSS is much better for this sort of a thing.]

*Where are the QK1001-2999? [Uh, this seems to be a trick question, as we don’t have that call number range. Is it a typo? We’re trying to find out.]

*Where are the CRC Handbooks?

*Where can I find information about homeotic development in fruit flys?

*I need recent articles about insulin and diabetes.
