Rod Library is looking to foster a culture of excellence in providing library service and to better understand user perceptions of library service quality. This is YOUR opportunity to tell us how well we are doing, whether you come to the library or use our resources online, and to give us insight into what users like you expect from Rod Library.
Starting April 15th, the library will be running a survey to gather input from you! Give us 3-5 minutes of your time and we'll give you a chance to win an iPad mini, in addition to other great prizes. The survey ends on Friday, May 3rd at 5pm.
We get input to create an even better Rod Library, and you get a chance at an iPad mini. We all win!

We have 4 new collaborative tables located in the learning commons behind the reference desk. Each station has a 47-inch tv screen and 5 VGA input connections to connect your PC laptop. We are also getting adapters so devices requiring video connectors other than VGA can utilize these stations as well.
Also new in the learning commons, we have a new electric stapler! You can staple up to 25 pages at a time without pressing a button! If you need to staple more than 25 pages, ask at the reference desk and we'd be happy to assist you.
Stop by the learning commons to see the changes we've made!
that the librarians have created guides for specific subjects, courses, and basic research tips? These guides are full of information on how to find sources as well as other related information about a specific subject or UNI course. They can be found by clicking on "subject guides" on the left hand side of the library homepage.
They are a very good resource for you to use in your research!
that files can be burned to CDs or DVDs on Rod Library computers? Use the built-in Windows functionality to handle a few files or the Roxio burning software (under All Programs) for bigger jobs. If you get stuck, ask one of the library staff to help you!
that the Gale Virtual Reference Library provides credible topic overviews from sources such as specialized subject encyclopedias? You can find it by going to "Databases A-Z" on our library homepage. You may hear some of us library guys refer to it as the "Good" Wikipedia you can use!!!
