on Sept. 11 Available in Mudd
response to the events of Sept. 11, 2001, the Reference & Instruction
Department at Mudd has created a guide to finding information related
to the events of Sept. 11. The guide is intended to assist Oberlin
College community members in seeking information to help us understand
the political, religious, economic and cultural contexts relating
to the events. It is not intended as a guide to current events as
Instead, the emphasis is on understanding the background, context,
and issues relating to the events. We developed the guide in time
to distribute paper copies at the last of the campus discussion
series last Friday 9/21. The web version of the guide will be updated
and is currently a featured link from the librarys homepage
(www.oberlin.edu /library). The URL for the guide itself is http://www.oberlin.edu
We want the guide to be a useful aid in the campus dialogue, and,
to that end, we are soliciting input from the campus community on
additional sources that might enhance the usefulness of the guide.
Such suggestions will be added in a special section of the guide.
I am coordinating the web version of the guide and suggestions may
be sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would also be glad to answer questions about the guide or to forward
paper copies to any campus office or organization upon request.
I encourage you to share the word about this resource with your
friends, classmates, professors, students, etc. and anyone interested
their understanding of the issues surrounding recent events. If
suggestions for making this resource more useful to the campus dialogues
on these issues, please let me know. Thank you very much.
