Like almost always, some great books made it to the Graduate Services shelves in February. And being February, the month of the valentine, why not come down and be a part of the letters of T.S. Elliot, Langston Hughes, and Gertrude Stein. You’re the reader, they are the writers, and with a little imagination these letters could be their valentines to you. Strike up a bond and in the process be woohooed. No need to limit yourself to books of letters though, jump on into any book here in Graduate Services and be a part of the February experience. Because like a valentine given needs a valentine given back to really be a worthwhile valentine, books need readers to really be worth their weight in dead treeness. Enjoy.

Tablet users: watch your posture! Recent research indicates that the way you hold/look at your tablet device affects how much pain you may experience as a result. A recent write-up states,
"Study participants’ heads and necks were in more flexed positions while using the tablets than those typical of desktop or notebook computer users. Working for long periods of time with the head slumped forward and the neck flexed can result in neck pain."
Here’s the original study, from the journal Work: A Journal of Prevention, Assessment and Rehabilitation.
Nos es muy grato anunciar que está ya disponible a los investigadores de las culturas ibéricas medievales una nueva puesta al día de esta base de datos. Sin grandes novedades pero con un constante acarreo de nuevos datos en las tres bibligrafías, BETA (textos castellanos), BITAGAP (gallegos, gallego-portugueses y portugueses) y BITECA (catalanes).
Gemma Avenoza, una de los responsables de BITECA, pasa el semestre de primavera en Harvard para estudiar no sólo los MSS e impresos antiguos de textos catalanes sino para aprovecharse de la extraordinaria riqueza bibliográfica de la Widener Library.
Charles Faulhaber, que se ocupa de BETA desde 1981, sale el 13 de abril para pasar dos meses en España. Piensa trabajar principalmente en la BNE, Palacio y el Escorial, tres bibliotecas cuyas riquezas quedan sin explorar exhaustivamente.
