Rod Library is now offering a new and improved method to find the information you need for your class assignments and research. Just use the "Articles" tab on the library home page to access the new, more powerful version of Panther Prowler.
When you try it out, you should notice right away that the top results are even more relevant to your search than before. This single, quick search finds the best information from almost all of the library's electronic journals and databases, as well as from the library catalog of books, DVDs, CDs, and other physical items.
(We believe everyone will benefit from the new Panther Prowler, but for a limited time, you can still access the old version here.)

The 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 dissemination of digital materials created by faculty, students, and staff.
David Stout , a representative from bepress, will provide a presentation open to the campus on Digital Commons, a commercial IR software package. This is a follow-up session to the general informational sessions given this week about IRs.
We know it's that time of the semester. You're living almost 24/7 in the library trying to finish another paper or reading those last chapters. Do you know who else is here at the library? Yep, thieves. They're waiting for you to leave your backpacks, cell phones, laptops, and wallets alone for just that moment you go to get a drink of water or go to the restroom. That's all the longer they need to take your personal items. Be smart. Don't leave your personal items unattended. In fact if library staff see items unattended, we will leave a small reminder that your items could have been the target for thieves. Has it happened this semester already? YES! Is it going to happen again? Sure if you leave your stuff alone. Don't become their next target!
You can get a jump start on the latest way to find the articles, books, and other information you need for your class assignments and research. Just click on the "Try me!" tab on the library home page to access the new, more powerful version of Panther Prowler, which will be officially unveiled this summer.
