Though it is infrequent during the summer, the Library-News newsletter comes out several times during the fall and spring semesters, taking the place of the old paper copies of News You Can Use (RIP). That one began in the late 1990s and died an unattractive death around 2005 when we realized that mailroom clerks weren’t putting it in the boxes of our intended audience (faculty and GTAs).
Today I send notices electronically, often through MavWire, and I can’t believe all of the energy I put into distributing several thousand of those news sheets around campus. Now it has more news and images and is delivered to your email with no fuss about finding campus mail labels and manila envelopes. Or a typewriter with a good ribbon. Yup. Even used one of those on some of the mailing labels. Times have changed!
