The Rod Library has purchased webcast materials from Academic Impressions about Copyright and Faculty Rights. The programs feature Kevin Smith and Steven McDonald and are designed to teach faculty and staff how to apply copyright laws appropriately in the classroom, research, and scholarship. The two CD sets cover Session 1: Faculty use of Copyright and Session 2: Faculty Ownership of Copyright. They are located in the stacks at KF 2995 S55 2012 v.1 & v.2.
You asked for it, we made it happen! Many of you requested access to your "R" drives while working on projects in the library. Now you can! All public workstations will require you to authenticate with your CATID and passphrase. Once you have logged in you will be able to create a profile on the screen and save files to your University "R" drive.
Effective July 22 you will begin to see a "Request" button when you are in the library catalog. Use this feature to place a hold on items already checked out, or to request an available item be held for you. Some materials, such as items from the Youth Collection, may not be requestable.
Requests for available items will be available within 24 hours Monday-Friday. You will receive an email notice when your item is ready for pickup.
Our new Interlibrary Loan system (ILLIAD) is up and running as of 6-13-13. You will need to authenticate to gain access. Once you are in you will be able to submit, view and track your orders more efficiently.
We are working on several projects here at the Rod. New carpet is being installed in several areas of the main floor. Government Documents are being shifted to make space for the Reference Collection. For more photos and updates visit our Facebook page.
