Yesterday Provost Dr. Gloria Gibson announced that Mr. Christopher Cox has accepted the position of Dean of Library Services at Rod Library. He will begin his new appointment August 27, 2012. Rod Library's faculty and staff are excited to have Mr. Cox join our faculty and we welcome him to the Cedar Valley!
Beginning Monday morning, May 21, the computers in the five east/west rows of computer desks in the Electronic Resource Area on second floor will be unavailable in order to allow us to replace the carpeting under the desks. We are excited about this project. This area is one of the most used areas of the building, and the stained and worn carpeting shows how popular it is.
The computers in the rows running north and south behind the Reference Desk and the clusters of computers on all floors will still be available for use next week. Please see the helpful folks at the Circulation Desk or the Reference Desk if you need help locating a computer to use for your research.
Thanks for your patience as we continue to improve our building!
Rod Library wants to hear your ideas about printed/paper books and electronic books (e-books). A survey will be conducted from Monday, April 16 through Tuesday, May 1, to learn the UNI community's preferences for printed/paper books or e-books. The survey will be online (http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22FCJ8Q5YLV) and printed copies may be found in the library lobby. For more information, email Leila Rod-Welch (Leila.firstname.lastname@example.org).
Renovation work began today on the third floor Youth Collection area. There may be some noise and dust while the work is taking place. If you need help locating a quiet place to study please see the friendly folks at the Circulation Desk by the entrance to the Library.
