Congratulations to Nicole, Kayla, Evan, Lauren, Jessica, Jackie, Alissa, Alison, Alexandra, Sarah, Brennan, Susanna, and Ashley who are graduating this spring or leaving to student teach! These individuals have worked at Rod Library for a combined 29.5 years!
The staff and faculty of Rod Library appreciate all their work and their dedication to the UNI community and wish them all the best as they begin the next phase of their lives.
Big changes are coming to the Rod Library lobby area over spring break. The picture here shows the wood paneled wall separating the lobby from the Reference Collection shelves. Say goodbye to the wall!
Beginning Monday March 18 contractors from Waterloo will be removing this wall and patching the carpeting and columns for us. This work will open up our lobby area more than ever. The lobby will still have soft seating with tables and be a place for people to sit and work together, talk, or read. After spring semester ends the area will be recarpeted too. Eventually new furniture will be purchased but not this fiscal year.
The computer stations behind the wall will be relocated to another place on this floor.
During the construction next week there will be noise and a bit of dust in the lobby area.
Rod Library offers limited space for the UNI community to post UNI-related advertisements, announcements, and collection boxes. We have an enclosed glass display case in the lobby for posters and announcements and some space in the lobby for banners and collection boxes. In addition we offer space in up to 50 of our six-sided plastic table displayers in lieu of paper table tents.
