ULM librarian publishes book review and article

Published October 09, 2014

Melinda F. Matthews, University of Louisiana at Monroe Interlibrary Loan/Reference Librarian recently wrote a book review and article, which were both published in “Louisiana Libraries” vol. 76, no. 4.

Matthews wrote a review on the book “Louisiana Eats!: The People, the Food, and Their Stories,” which delves into the rich history of food in Louisiana. It contains interesting interviews with chefs, delicious recipes, and mouthwatering pictures of Louisiana cuisine.

The second piece, an article by Matthews titled, “Please Have a Seat Louisiana Academic Librarians Can Chair Committees,” explores why academic librarians are qualified to oversee committees.

Matthews also recently published a review of the book “Say No to Bullying” in “Catholic Library World” this past June. The book goes into detail about the reasons behind bullying and ways to prevent it.

Matthews has worked at the University Library since 1990, when she started as the Humanities Reference Librarian.

She has held the Interlibrary Loan/Reference Librarian position since 1992.
