UNI faculty and staff are invited to attend one of several small group discussion sessions on Institutional Repository @ UNI scheduled for next week in Rod Library room 324. Rod Library is in the process of investigating the desirability and feasibility of developing an institutional repository at the University of Northern Iowa.
An institutional repository is a set of services supporting the management and long-term preservation of scholarly materials created by faculty, students, and staff.

Tuesday, April 30: 11 a.m.-12 noon

Rod Library will open at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, December 23 in order to allow UNI's Physical Plant to complete electrical maintenance.
UNISTAR, our online library catalog, OneSearch, and our website will not be available from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. that day as well. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience during this maintenance period.
The water is off temporarily on the east side of the building. This means all drinking fountains and restrooms are out of order. The water should be turned back on in the next 10-15 minutes. Sorry for the inconvenience!
On the positive side, Physical Plant found the water leak and are in the middle of replacing the bad pipe! Way to go, Physical Plant!!
Yesterday water was found leaking into one of the east side lower restrooms. Today UNI's Physical Plant staff are diligently trying to find the source of the leak and get it stopped. They must drill a large hole in the wall of the men's second floor restroom to get to the leak however. This drilling will create some loud noise on the east side of the building, in particular for the second and third floors. We apologize for the disruption.
If you need assistance locating a quiet place to study away from the drilling please see our helpful staff at the Circulation Desk.
Stop by the west entrance at the Book Bistro area of the Learning Commons and check out the video displaying the projects developed by the UNI Writing Program this semester. The video will be available through December 17.
