Chronicle of Higher Education Spotlights SMC's Library Pinterest Page

The Chronicle of Higher Education highlights the Saint Mary’s College Library as one of three college libraries that use Pinterest (a social network utilizing a digital scrapbook platform for sharing art, design, hobbies and cultural interests) for academic purposes.

During De La Salle Week, a celebration of the life of Saint John Baptist de La Salle and the college’s Lasallian heritage, the SMC library’s Pinterest page featured a board about saint, and it promotes a variety of books of interest to Saint Mary's students.

The Chronicle story was prompted by a recent online seminar hosted by the Association of College and Research Libraries about the online pin board’s academic potential.  Read the Chronicle of Higher Education story “3 Ways College Libraries Are Exploring Pinterest.”
