DESCRIPTION: A Walk in the Clouds—Everyone’s Introduction
to Cloud Computing
Please rsvp to Mary Hanna email@example.com by Friday, February 18.
Universities, companies, governments, politicians, citizens, the Vatican, and others are buzzing about cloud computing. But what is it? How do you use it? Will you even *need* to use it, and if so, what are the major things you should know about it? With our February presentation, Tech-Connect is kicking off a new series of Brown Bag lunches for 2011, called The Year of the Cloud. Bring your lunch and come join Stormy Stark and Matt Litchfield as they explain cloud computing in language everyone can understand. We’ll bring the cookies and water, you bring your questions about cloud computing, and by the end of the hour, you'll be ready to take a walk in the clouds! ---endorsed by Your on-the-Grounds and in-the-Cloud librarians, Kay and Carole

Table of Contents
In addition to the fabulous handbooks in the CLIC, handbooks are also located in other UVa libraries. Click here to view handbooks in the Biology / Psychology library.
Currently, they have over 600 handbooks. If you use the links on the left of the VIRGO page, you can narrow the listing by subject, call number, series title, etc.. For example, I clicked on the link above and then clicked on the "series title" link, "Wiley series on personality processes" and it narrowed the results to 16 handbooks.
