Anyone who has ever tasted just-picked, juicy tomatoes still warm from the sun combined with soft, creamy mozzarella knows without a shadow of a doubt that this is simply heaven on a fork. At last there is a cookbook that celebrates the simple sophistication of this classic combination. Perfect for year-round cooking, the 100 recipes in Tomatoes & Mozzarella come from a variety of cuisines, from the Mediterranean to the American Southwest, in full color, and go far beyond the classic insalata Caprese. They range from simple and colorful springtime essentials like Red and Yellow Tomatoes with Mozzarella and Asparagus to comforting cool-weather main courses like Winter Seafood Lasagnetti, bursting with shrimp, scallops, tangy tomatoes, and melt-in-your-mouth mozzarella. There are dishes for brunch, appetizers, soups, salads, main courses, and more. Every recipe calls for fresh, canned, or sun-dried tomatoes combined with fresh or packaged mozzarella cheese. Filled with stylish and contemporary full-color photos, Tomatoes & Mozzarella provides mouthwatering inspiration to every tomato and mozzarella lover.

The silvery clip of scissors. The scent of talcum and tonic. The game blaring on the radio. The lazy rhythms of friendly conversation. In Do Bald Men Get Half-Price Haircuts? Vince Staten perfectly captures the atmosphere of the classic barbershop and the special place it holds in the hearts of American men. Staten visited more than three hundred barbershops, in towns ranging from Chowchilla, California, to Mount Airy, North Carolina. Displaying a great ear for dialogue, he re-creates the banter in a family-run Italian shop in Louisville, the relaxed jokes shared at an African-American barber's in a quiet neighborhood in Nashville, and the familiar conversations about local politics, the new baseball coach, and the meaning of life that make it clear why the barbershop is the communications hub of so many communities. In a wonderfully entertaining exploration of the history, secrets, and social contributions of barbershop culture, he provides answers to such pressing questions as: What's in those hair tonics anyway? Why are the stripes on the barber pole red and white? Why not a barbershop trio? As in his earlier fascinating tours through the hardware store and the phar-macy, Staten combines a highly original sense of humor with a keen eye for telling detail. With Do Bald Men Get Half-Price Haircuts? he treats readers to an unusual, warmly nostalgic, and often hilarious tour of an enduring corner of American popular culture.

Many of the assignments you receive as part of your experience in higher education will require you to use the library for research. To do this you must become familiar with its collections and services. You may be familiar with your high school or public library. You will find, however, that the college or university library is more complex and often larger than the library with which you may be familiar. It probably provides a greater variety of services, and it may use a different scheme for classifying its materials. Over the last two decades technology has drastically changed the way we think of libraries. For many, the traditional notion of libraries as storehouses for books has been replaced by the image of a virtuallibrary-that is, a library in which all the information is available electronically. In this image, if a building exists at all it is only to house computers and to provide a laboratory in which librarians, acting as information specialists, are engaged in creating information in digital format. Neither the traditional notion of a library as a storehouse for books nor the image of a virtual library is entirely true today. However, there is a certain amount of validity in each of these images. The library you are using probably no longer has a card catalog. In most academic libraries the card catalog has been replaced by an online catalog. Many libraries have canceled paper subscriptions to indexes and abstracts, replacing them with electronic versions. Although libraries have gotten rid of their card catalogs in favor of online catalogs and subscribe to online databases and other resources in electronic format, they continue to retain and purchase materials in traditional formats: paper, microfiche, microfilm, video cassette, and the like. And while it is true that technology has improved the ways we retrieve information, it has also added levels of complexity. College and university libraries offer a variety of
