As one of our promotion efforts, I prepare a bibliography of articles from Oklahoma State and Federal periodicals that I think would be interesting to our library customers. I send the bibliography to the library's Public Relations Office to publish in one of the library's publications. I send one about every two weeks, depending on the number of entries. Books received through the depository program are also included.

I thought of the title for the periodical bibliography when I saw the little figure that I got from Microsoft Gallery to put with the bibliography. I had another name for the bibliography in the beginning. After looking at the figure I thought it looked like the character on the Crackerjack box. Bingo! Why not call the bibliography "Uncle Sam's Crackerjacks."

I loved Crackerjacks as a child and still do today. I thought the bibliography would be mixture of books and periodicals from both Federal and state agencies. Like Crackerjacks, it is a mixture of good materials. Also like Crackerjacks it has a prize inside: information. So the name was born and stuck.

Attached is a recent list. All the lists feature titles received within the previous two weeks.
