Subject Guides can help you with and inform you about the best sources and searches to use when preparing papers, presentations, and other projects. These guides are online 24/7 for whenever you are working on assignments. We are always creating new guides -- some of the recently created ones are for certain classes, but we also have a new guide to help prepare for tests in the sciences, for example.
Check out the new web site of the Center for the History of Rural Iowa Education and Culture (CHRIEC) created by staff of the UNI Museums as part of a project funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The Center makes available diverse resources that support the study of the history of public education in Iowa. Did you know that Iowa had over 12,000 one-room schools?

Thanks to everyone who came to the Library last week to meet with OPN Architects in the Feasibility Study focus groups! You gave OPN a lot of great information about where we are as a library now and where we should go in the future.
If you were not able to attend a focus group but would like to share YOUR ideas on the future design of Rod Library send us your thoughts on the Feedback Form.
