Newman Library Resources
Newman Library has 30 copies of This I Believe II on reserve under the faculty name COMMON. The book can be picked up at the Circulation desk and is listed as a 2 day reserve.
Are your students creating written, audio, visual, or multimedia projects related to This I Believe II? The national This I Believe project collects and compiles online and audio belief essays. Now we at Virginia Tech have the Common Book Repository, an online digital archive created to house materials inspired by the Common Book. Please contact Nathan Hall for more information about uploading to the repository and check out "Nineteen to One" a collection of essays and images created by the Design Thinking course during the summer session.
