Invitation - Institutional Repository @ UNI discussion sessions at Rod Library

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.

The Microsoft Surface Hub at Rod Library

Rod Library is actively fundraising to purchase a Microsoft Surface Hub, as a key component of the new Learning Commons collaborative workspace.    

Why the Microsoft Surface Hub?

The 55” Microsoft Surface Hub represents a new era in collaboration at Rod Library.   While we have a number of conferencing and collaboration tools (like webcams and shared screens) at Rod Library today, they exist separately and take a bit of know-how and prep time to sync up and activate.

Banned Book Week

We celebrate Banned Books Week each year to bring attention to books that have been challenged, restricted, or banned, and to highlight the importance of even the most controversial texts. Many of the books you'll see featured this week haven't actually been banned. They've been challenged or otherwise targeted for removal, but they've remained on shelves in the long run after communities followed their own challenge policies and allowed for advocacy and discussion.
