Alice’s adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Welcome to Chasing Reference’s weekly roundup of the curious articles and links that have caught our eye this week!

  • Amanda French wrote a review of Google Docs/Drive’s new Research Tool over at ProfHacker. (Note that the Research Tool now lets you confine searches to scholar and cite with APA, Chicago, or MLA.)
  • Zadie Smith’s essay on the New York Review of Books’ blog often reads as a love letter to libraries, including this passage: “ I thought a library was one of the few sites where the urge to conserve and the desire to improve—twin poles of our political mind—were easily and naturally united.”
