We are delighted to say that our Library Spotlight this week was a live on air interview with Ka Ming Pang  of @uklibchat This was our first live on air interview (we normally pre-record in the library and broadcast) . We’re very pleased with how it went and were very happy to show Ka Ming and her Ukilbchat colleagues Annie Gleeson, Gaby Koenig and Siobhan McGuiness along to the UCC 98.3 FM studios. You can listen to the interview here. (We particularly love the picture that Martin took using Ka Ming’s cool retro instamatic camera – it makes them look like a rather cool shoegaze band… (Lush spring to mind)

Our Library Spotlight this week focused on our Film Studies Collection. This collection is in the main utilisted by the large number of Film Studies courses run by many departments. It is also used by the general library user with an interest in cinema. UCC Library holds over 3,000 films on DVD, most of them borrowable. We also stock thousands of texts dealing with cinema. We subscribe to numerous journals and film magazines. And of course we subscribe to many film databases such as Film Index International , American Film Index Catalogue, International Federation of Film Archives A Film Studies libguide, newly released, can be accessed here our film studies liaison librarian is Claire O’Brien.

Our recommended read of the  week is one for those concerned with their Digital Privacy. This article by Kevin Mitnick on how to go invisible online is worth definitely worth a read.
