The 2010 Winter Olympics are about to start in Vancouver and many of us will be trying to keep up with new developments or follow a particular event. Fortunately, the library has added a 2010 Winter Olympics Subject Guide on our website. This page collects web resources on the Olympics and Paralympics, news coverage of the games, information about travel to and around Vancouver and more. You can visit and bookmark this page by visiting our homepage, http://jeffcolibrary.org. Next click Research Tools, then look for 2010 Winter Olympics under the "Featured" topics.
