Geographical abbreviation error

Posted by chenglibrary on March 20, 2013

FROM: Dave Smith

 FEEDBACK: I found this page from your library while doing research for a paper at another school: http://www.wpunj.edu/dotAsset/76ddd069-1c68-4096-8060-3e425d8f7148.pdf.

You may want to revise the information on line 1 of page 3. Little Rock is in Arkansas (AR) not Alaska (AK). It’s the little things like this that can bring down the credibility of an institution of higher learning. I wasn’t trying to proofread the paper, but as a resident of Arkansas I tend to notice when someone tries to move me several time zones to the west!

Thank you for posting this kind of information. It was very useful.


 Dear Mr. Smith:  Thank you very much for taking the time to let us know about this error…we will correct it ASAP!  

Thanks again, Anne Ciliberti, Dean of Library Services
