ALDERMAN GRADUATE CARRELS
You know you’ve seen them, the small desks along the perimeter of the book stacks in Alderman Library. The desks have attached bookshelves, often with many books stored on those shelves. They are the library’s study carrels and graduate students can request one for their personal use during the school year. If you are interested in obtaining the use of a carrel for the coming school year and want to know more, the Alderman Graduate Carrel policies are now available online. To request a carrel contact Stephanie Hunter at email@example.com.

EXPANDED ACCESS IN APA PsycBOOKS®
Does it frustrate you to be unable to access the full text of an online book because it has an embargo period? If so, this news from APA will be of interest. The content included in PsycBOOKS® has been expanded so that there are no more embargoes on new APA-published scholarly and professional books. They will be available as they are released.
In addition, PsycBOOKS® now includes all volumes of the APA Handbooks in Psychology Series, offering immediate access to reference books covering a wide array of disciplines. Just go to the PsycBOOKS database and search by the title. For example, one of the APA Handbooks in Psychology Series is the APA Educational Psychology Handbook. When you search for this title, your search results will include citation information for each of the book’s chapters and access to a PDF of each chapter.
Throughout the semester, we will be highlighting information about finding, organizing, analyzing, managing, displaying, and preserving research data. See this week’s featured data information below.
FOLLOW-UP REPORT RELEASED
The Principal Follow-up Survey (PFS), first conducted in school year 2008-09, is a component of the 2011-12 Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS). The 2012-13 PFS was administered in order to provide attrition rates for principals in K-12 public and private schools. The goal was to assess how many principals in the 2011-12 school year still worked as a principal in the same school in the 2012-13 school year, how many had moved to become a principal in another school, and how many had left the principalship.
EMPLOYMENT REPORT RELEASED
Baccalaureate and Beyond: A First Look at the Employment Experiences and Lives of College Graduates, 4 Years On (B&B:08/12) presents initial findings about the employment outcomes of bachelor’s degree recipients approximately 4 years after they completed their 2007–08 degrees. These findings are based on data from the second follow-up of the Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:08/12), a nationally representative longitudinal sample survey of students who completed the requirements for a bachelor’s degree during the 2007–08 academic year. The study addresses questions related to bachelor’s degree recipients’ education and employment experiences.
