As of July 1, 2012, the UNI Museums joined the Rod Library organization. The UNI Museums are currently comprised of the University Museum and the Marshall Center School. The Museums will be reporting to Head of Collection Management and Special Services Kate Martin.
While recent budget reductions have closed the doors of the University Museum to the general public, the Museums continue to be open for business, serving as an academic resource to faculty and departments through exhibitions, internships for students, and lectures for UNI classes. If you are interested in bringing your students to the Museum or utilizing Museum resources in your course, contact Kate Martin.
Over the next year, Rod Library will be working to integrate the UNI Museums into the library organization, learning about and from the Museums staff about what they do and introducing them to what we do in the library. We'll be listening to faculty, students and community members to hear what they would like to see from the Museums, and working to develop a collaborative vision for the future of the Museums, assuring their relevance and solidifying their place as a valuable educational resource for the UNI campus community.
