Thanks to everyone for participating and giving input on the Learning Commons over the past few months! We are very excited about the changes to come and we know you are, too! We are currently compiling and analyzing all of the input we have received. As soon as that is done, we will be sure to share our findings with you! We do have information, articles, and other items of interest that can be found at our Learning Commons LibGuide: guides.lib.uni.edu/learning-commons In addition, you can always send an e-mail to us at email@example.com or stop by the library and see the ongoing progress we have made!
that files can be burned to CDs or DVDs on Rod Library computers? Use the built-in Windows functionality to handle a few files or the Roxio burning software (under All Programs) for bigger jobs. If you get stuck, ask one of the library staff to help you!
The LexisNexis Academic database periodically adds and deletes titles. Over the last few months, for example, they added 143 titles and dropped 19. One of the new titles is Progressive Media's Market Industry Research. This is a collection of industry snapshots, covering markets and categories in 74 countries; one report example is Drinks Retailing in United States: Market Snapshot to 2016.
that the Gale Virtual Reference Library provides credible topic overviews from sources such as specialized subject encyclopedias? You can find it by going to "Databases A-Z" on our library homepage. You may hear some of us library guys refer to it as the "Good" Wikipedia you can use!!!
Feeling a bit warm on the east side (the side toward Maucker Union) of the library? A bit stuffy, too? Our fans on that side of the building need to get repaired. A major part of the motor was sent to Cedar Rapids for repair; if they can't fix it, we'll have to order a new one. We can't predict when it will get fixed unfortunately.
So please bear with us! If necessary, move to the back of the building toward the Campanile where we still have fans working.
