Did you know that you have a digital reputation? Everything you say and do creates an image of you. How people — friends, family, classmates, neighbors, professional colleagues, and future employers — see you will in part come from the digital footprint that you leave behind. This digital footprint is not only comprised of everything you write and post online, but also includes everything other people write about you and tag you in. Every website you visit, picture you like, and video you share will impact your digital footprint and shape your digital reputation. This month’s library display includes some interesting statistics and information about our digital footprints and some of the precautions we can take to protect our digital reputation. The books we feature this month address proper online etiquette, the potential downsides and risks of social media, cyberbullying and other pitfalls we may encounter while using the Internet. Stop by the Katherine Brush Library to check out our display and learn more.
Keep Calm and Plan Your Future! October’s second floor book display revolves around what many of you are starting to think about — life after high school. Whether you are taking the PSATS this week or starting to look ahead to the SATs, we thought the books featured in this display would pair well with what many of you are focused on these days and would offer some good advice for you to keep in mind while you are weighing the decisions you are each facing about your individual futures. Also, when the time comes, don’t forget that we have an entire section on the first floor with study books for the various exams you are all going to take at some point here, from the ACT to the AP Exams. These books can be used in the library or checked out on a 1 day loan. If you have any questions, just ask our library staff at the desk!
