Are you curious how we make sounds? Speech Language Pathologists know that verbal communication involves physical processes and movements that many of us take for granted. Greenwood Library is happy to make available Speech Language Pathology (Anatomy.tv). Speech Language Pathology (Anatomy.tv) is an interactive, digital resource developed by Primal Pictures, which provides 3D modeling views of the head and neck including facial muscles, tongue, oral and nasal cavities, larynx, pharynx, ear, and nerves — all aspects of human anatomy that affect speech. Dive in by accessing Databases A-Z from the Greenwood Library homepage and locating Speech Language Pathology!

Who Knew?: Reflections on Vietnam by J. Holley Watts
In the Inscribed Collection; signed by the author
Link to catalog: http://readpac.longwood.edu//record=b1301128
Student assistant Chandler Pascale chose to highlight Rural Virginia. He writes:
Published in 2004, Who Knew? is a collection of photographs and memories from J. Holley Watts’ service in Vietnam during the Vietnam War. In 1966 as a senior in college, Watts decided to join the Red Cross and chose to serve in Vietnam. There she became close to the American troops fighting a bloody war, and many of her memories are very emotional. For instance, she noted that radio operators often listened to telephone calls made to the United States. When Watts asked why she couldn’t have a private conversation, the operator said “It’s just that you…you remind me of home.”
I chose this book because I don’t know much about the Vietnam War, but I wanted to read personal stories from the conflict. Its contents are very emotional and often surprising. Watts’ reflections reminded me that my grandfather said he would take cut out sports articles from the newspaper and send them to his friends stationed in Vietnam. Any student with an appreciation for history who would like to see a very unique perspective of a very tenuous episode in America’s past would find this book fascinating.
