We know it's that time of the semester. You're living almost 24/7 in the library trying to finish another paper or reading those last chapters. Do you know who else is here at the library? Yep, thieves. They're waiting for you to leave your backpacks, cell phones, laptops, and wallets alone for just that moment you go to get a drink of water or go to the restroom. That's all the longer they need to take your personal items. Be smart. Don't leave your personal items unattended.
UNI faculty and staff are invited to attend one of several small group discussion sessions on Institutional Repository @ UNI scheduled for next week in Rod Library room 324. Rod Library is in the process of investigating the desirability and feasibility of developing an institutional repository at the University of Northern Iowa.
You can get a jump start on the latest way to find the articles, books, and other information you need for your class assignments and research. Just click on the "Try me!" tab on the library home page to access the new, more powerful version of Panther Prowler, which will be officially unveiled this summer.
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.
