New Collaborative Tables and Equipment in the Learning Commons!

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.

Subject Guides help you with research!

 Did you know....

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!

A full listing can be found @!

Find business information on other countries

Did you know.....

Rod Library offers databases with business information about other countries and their companies, industries, and markets?

ABI/Inform Complete, for example, provides reports from Business Monitor International, Economist Intelligence Unit, and Oxford Analytica.

Give ABI/Inform a whirl!

 Also, the Business Portal is another great resource when searching for business information!

Blind Date With a Book

Blind Date Display

In honor of Valentine’s week the Rod would like to set you up on a “Blind Date With A Book”
Here’s how it works- Stop by and check out a  specially wrapped book from our display.
Take it home, unwrap it, read it, and enjoy! If you don’t like the book, simply return it to the library, its feelings won’t be hurt.
