Current Earth Sciences Library News, No. 528, a glorious end to the Harper Year edition

Naked Science?

You may or may not have heard of the Naked Scientist podcast, a fun & approachable look at any number of science topic. Their 16th December ‘End of the world?’ featuring our own David Norman, and in a special ‘Foraging for Fossils’ edition you can also listen to Sarah Finney at the Brighton Building. This was produced by recent graduate Sara Sjosten.

A Game?

I’m assured this is a game but I can’t work out how to use, much like that 2014 thing.

Also, keep your kids entertained with the on-line spirograph

Thank you all for visiting and using the library. This edition is mostly fluff but please note 1 paper in Nature and 1 in Science. Not a bad way to end the year. Have lovely break and the library will be open again on Monday 5th January 2015. In case of librarianing emergencies, I will be checking my emails periodically.
