The Spring 2018 Lesley University Library Newsletter is an overview of developments that have taken place in the library since the Fall 2017 semester. It reports on success stories, gives insight into personal accounts of library resources, and new developments to enhance the quality of services.

The newsletter begins with an overview by Dean Hedi BenAicha and is followed with contributions from many of the staff members of the library. This includes Sam Quiñon's article, "Attention Faculty: what Lesley Librarians Actually Do," which indicates how the library field has changed and how important it is for librarians to engage in teaching critical information literacy skills to Lesley students. Other articles include an introduction to the new InfoLit Module, an overview of what a one-on-one research consultation is like at Lesley, a report on the state of Lesley scholarship in DigitalCommons@Lesley, and highlights of the "Celebrate Edith" activities that celebrate the 146th birthday of Lesley's founder Edith Lesley. Student, Rachel Fernandez returns with a testimony on what it is like to use Lesley University Library's resources for research purposes.
