to Dr. Seuss.
Let’s celebrate the Birthday
Of a world famous poet;
His name’s Dr. Seuss
Didn’t you know it?
Please join us in Miller Library for a Birthday celebration March 3 at 7pm.
Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax” will be shown in the media room, and Birthday cake and ice cream will be provided!
The auto room is making more progress. Additional copies of magazines are now entering the catalog and hitting the shelves. Soon we should have all of the magazines on the back shelves in the system and accessible to students. We’re also getting lots of our odds and ends materials like aftermarket brochures and event pamphlets organized. We’re also going to have the desks at the back freed up soon, and they will move to the front of the room for easier, more convenient access.
We would also like to start getting some feedback from those of you that use the auto room and read these blog entries. Is there anything you’d like to see here? Is there anything that you want to know more about? We’d also like to start receiving answers to the trivia questions as well. We’re considering offering some prizes for correct answers. If you’d like to send your thoughts and answers to us send them to email@example.com.
And on that note, here’s the latest trivia answer to last week’s question:
C. Renault Alliance. Fun Fact: Car and Driver later admitted in a 2009 article that giving the Renault Alliance a 10Best award was a pretty terrible decision. Though they also brought up egregious award winners from other magazines to show they weren’t the only ones to show poor judgment.
And here’s this week’s question:
Malcom Bricklin was associated with a number of car companies. Which two of these companies did he introducing to the US market?

Well the semester is winding down quickly all around campus, but we’re still staying busy in the auto room. We’ve been sorting through quite a few more materials, among which are the many duplicates of magazines sitting in the back. We’re getting close to having that part of the sorting finished, and following that we should have more copies of magazines on the shelves, some new, some duplicates. The other good news about that is once most of those duplicates are in the system, we should be able to finally start putting more service manuals into the system so that they can be searched for and located more easily.
Speaking of searching, I felt like it would be worth mentioning that we do have a searchable library catalog on the McPherson College page under the library section. This search engine is really helpful for finding books, and we have a few manuals in the system, as well as most of the periodicals. It’s also helpful in that it lets you know whether something is located in the auto room or in the general collection upstairs. Of course not everything is going to be able to be easily found on the database, or you might not be able to get the information you need, but it’s not a bad place to start. And if it doesn’t work out, you know how and when to find us.
It’s also worth mentioning that soon we will be adding a few more hours in the auto room to help make things more accessible and get more work done in there. Stay tuned for an official schedule.
Here’s the answer to the last trivia question:
Answer: 1985 VW GTI. Fun Fact: The VW GTI was eligible to receive the Car of the Year award thanks to the fact that, although it was designed and engineered in Germany, all Mk1 Golfs and GTIs in the US were built in Pennsylvania.
And here’s the next trivia question:
1. Which of the following was a Car and Driver 10Best winner in 1983?
a. Chevrolet Camaro Z28
b. Ford Thunderbird
c. Renault Alliance
d. Fiat X1/9
