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.
Rod Library staff are eager to assist with research questions/assignments and help you make use of library resources. The Information Desk, located on the main floor of the library, is staffed by student assistants during almost all hours that the library is open. Librarians are available during select hours at the nearby Research Help Desk to consult on more complex questions as well as by appointment. Liaison librarians are assigned to each academic department. You may also contact us via phone, email, text, or live chat for any of your research questions.

We're excited to launch the latest updates to the Rod Library website! Here are the major changes to the user experience:
1. The login prompts have been removed from the homepage, as they were confusing to some users.
2. The Databases A-Z pages have been moved to their own separate website, for increased reliability and availability.
3. We created a new Student Employment Portal for processing new student job applications, and pushed all student employment content to that portal.
