Best on the Street: 2010 Analysts Rankings

The Wall Street Journal recently published its 18th annual ranking of the best analysts in 44 industries. The survey includes interviews of the top-ranked analyst in each industry. A search of the Wall Street Journal (ProQuest edition) for "best on the street" turns up a list of articles with the interviews of analysts in each industry. Other finance publications such as Institutional Investor also publish rankings of analysts.

Library Reducing Energy Costs

Work will begin in the Library May 20th to reduce the level of lighting in specific parts of our building.  We'll be disabling some ceiling light panels, resulting in an alternating off/on pattern.  This on/off pattern has been in place for many, many years on most of the third floor and has been a great success.  Applying this pattern to the fourth floor, and a few other locations in the building, will save energy and reduce our energy costs.  

In addition, we'll be adding daylight sensors to the light fixtures around the perimeter of each floor.  These sensors will turn on the perimeter lights when it senses the light level coming through the windows has decreased and will turn off the lights when the light level outside is high.

We'll also be replacing some high-wattage fixtures on the second and third floors.

In order for this work to continue portions of our building will have reduced lighting at different times during the day.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  If you need assistance finding a different location to study, or if you need help locating materials in an affected area, please contact the Circulation Desk on the second floor.  The work should be completed by early July. 

Thank you for your patience!


Mobile Library Web Site

Mobile site

The Library's Web site has gone mobile!  Check out our new beta mobile Web site on your mobile device.  We are in the beginning stages of developing the site.  If you have suggestions for content that you would like to be able to access with your mobile device let us know!

Watch for more information and another opportunity to share your ideas this summer!


Printer Friendly Pages

Want to print out a page from Rod Library's Web site but don't want all the extra stuff, like menus, to appear on the printout?  Now you can!  On each Web page on our site, excluding the homepage, you'll now find a new feature called "Printer-Friendly Pages".   The link will appear on the right side of each page.

Printer friendly icon

Clicking on that link will open a new window with a version of the Web page that is more printer-friendly.

An added feature is the ability to "Display link URLs as footnotes".  Click on that link to display the URLs of all the hyperlinks on the page as a footnote at the bottom.  This could come in mighty handy for content rich pages such as those in the Special Collections (for historical essays) and Library Instruction (for subject guides, etc.) sections.
