Learn to excel at spreadsheets  

New class for Microsoft ExcelI can't tell you how many spreadsheets I filled with weather indicators and pollen counts during my first job out of college. I have used Excel in every job I've held since, whether it was in a lab, clinic, or office, and can still key numbers using the numeric pad. In a new class designed for the intermediate user, let me share with you what I think are the coolest, most useful things you can do with Excel. Get hands-on experience with entering and sorting data, performing calculations, printing parts of large spreadsheets, and using formulas. Reserve your seat in our computerized classroom with our online registration form or give us a call. Join me on Thursday, October 20th at 2 p.m.  And by the way, cooler weather is on the way but pollen counts are going up. — Sonya

Hungry? Here's a "Guide to Good Eats"  
 Gregg's Guide to Good Eats - available at the THI Library    
I recently created a little Guide to Good Eats. I visited some of the restaurants and cafes located within easy walking distance of THI and sampled some the heart-healthy items (primarily soups, salads, pasta, and sandwiches) available at reasonable or low cost. Good and cheap is my motto! And fast, since most of us have limited time during lunch. I've been pleasantly surprised at the popularity of my little guide. If you'd like a copy, just stop by the circulation desk. (I can even email you a rough copy if you can't stop by in person.) And if you have any suggestions for the next edition, just let me know. — Gregg

There's a book for that! Stumbling across good books 

Have you ever just lost yourself in the bookstore going from section to section browsing the titles? Our collection is organized like a bookstore, with books shelved by topic for easy browsing and discovery. Whether you're interested in electrophysiology, cardiac surgery, or even resume writing, there's a book for that (or two or three). Visit the THI library and look around. You never know what you might discover. — Shab
