Rod Library has just started a site license to the electronic version of "The Chronicle of Higher Education." Currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff can access this title from any computer on campus and, after authenticating with their CatID, from off-campus as well.
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).
The World Bank announced on April 10th "that it will implement a new Open Access policy for its research outputs and knowledge products, effective July 1, 2012.
Facebook decided to do site maintenance today and the Rod Library page (with trivia question #3) would show up, then disappear, show up, then disappear. Frustrating!!!
Because of the problems with the site on Wednesday, we will run question 3 again on Thursday so you all have a chance to enter. We'll put question 4 on Friday and question 5 on Monday, April 16.
We'll announce the winner on Friday, April 20!!!!!
National Library Week is April 8-14. To help celebrate, enter Rod Library's trivia contest on its Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/rodlibrary
We'll post a question every day of National Library Week. The person who correctly answers the most questions will win a Nook! In the case of a tie, we will randomly select a winner.
(Unfortunately, Rod Library employees, including Library student assistants, cannot enter.)
