Rod Library has just started a site license to the electronic version of "The Chronicle of Higher Education." Currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff can access this title from any computer on campus and, after authenticating with their CatID, from off-campus as well.
Rod Library wants to hear your ideas about printed/paper books and electronic books (e-books). A survey will be conducted from Monday, April 16 through Tuesday, May 1, to learn the UNI community's preferences for printed/paper books or e-books. The survey will be online (http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22FCJ8Q5YLV) and printed copies may be found in the library lobby. For more information, email Leila Rod-Welch (Leila.firstname.lastname@example.org).

As the first phase of this policy, the Bank launched today a newOpen Knowledge Repository and adopted a set ofCreative Commons copyright licenses."
