Subject Guides Can Boost Your Research!

Subject Guides can help you with and inform you about the best sources and searches to use when preparing papers, presentations, and other projects.  These guides are online 24/7 for whenever you are working on assignments.  We are always creating new guides -- some of the recently created ones are for certain classes, but we also have a new guide to help prepare for tests in the sciences, for example.

Dr. Jean Donham awarded ILA Member of the Year

Congratulations to one of our colleagues, Dr. Jean Donham, who was recently awarded the ILA Member of the Year at the Iowa Library Association conference!  This award is given to an individual or institution based upon their activities or accomplishments in areas such as assisting libraries in improving their service, helping library users, leadership in education or in-service training for librarians, extension of library services through cooperation, and development of library facilities.

Send Us Your Ideas on the Future Rod Library

Thanks to everyone who came to the Library last week to meet with OPN Architects in the Feasibility Study focus groups!  You gave OPN a lot of great information about where we are as a library now and where we should go in the future.

If you were not able to attend a focus group but would like to share YOUR ideas on the future design of Rod Library send us your thoughts on the Feedback Form.
