Rod Library now has a water bottle filling station next to the women's restroom and near the Browsing Room on the main floor of the library! You can save money and reduce waste while enjoying cold chilled water!
Guess what?!?! As part of the learning commons project, we now have 4 new mobile carts floating around the library for you to use!!. Each cart has a 47-inch flat screen monitor and cables that will allow you to connect your laptop and/or electronic devices to the flat screen monitor However, we only have cables for VGA and HDMI compatible devices. Carts have cords so they can be plugged into an electrical outlet. Instructions are on each of the carts.
We want you to use these carts and move them around the library to wherever you and your friends are working on that group project!
If you have any questions or comments, please visit us at the Reference desk on the main (2nd) floor!
Welcome back to Rod Library! It's going to be an exciting and busy semester. There are many changes, large and small, happening right inside your own library! Rod Library currently has five sample chairs for you to try out and vote on. These are the chairs that will be purchased specifically for the Learning Commons area on the 2nd (main) floor of the library. The sample chairs are located in the Learning Commons area behind the Reference Desk on the 2nd (main) floor of the library. Sit in them, try them out, see which one is most comfortable! Vote for your favorites on the whiteboard by the chairs - you can't miss it. Voting will end on January 25th, 2013 at 12:00 noon.
You might have seen that strange chair shaped like a person that was delivered to the Learning Commons area of the library today. We are trying out some new furniture @ the Rod! We want you to come try it out and vote!!! What do YOU think??? It is located in the library by the glass windows facing the ITTC Building.
Thanks to everyone for participating and giving input on the Learning Commons over the past few months! We are very excited about the changes to come and we know you are, too! We are currently compiling and analyzing all of the input we have received. As soon as that is done, we will be sure to share our findings with you! We do have information, articles, and other items of interest that can be found at our Learning Commons LibGuide: guides.lib.uni.edu/learning-commons In addition, you can always send an e-mail to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the library and see the ongoing progress we have made!
Rumor has it that students would like whiteboards in the library! :-) Guess what? We have two whiteboards floating around on the main (2nd) floor of the library. Please feel free to use them and move them around!
