Rod Library has so many fantastic student workers each academic year. We wanted to see what a few of our student workers have gone on to accomplish after their time at Rod Library!
What is it?
In November, Rod Library conducted a survey of students to measure the impact that the library has on their experience and success as a student at UNI. The results are in, and they show that students are gaining a great deal from their experiences at Rod Library!
Rod Library houses thousands of rare, valuable, and delicate books, manuscripts, and institutional records that are available for students to use. Unfortunately, these valuable primary resources are underutilized by students because they can be difficult to find and can seem intimidating or confusing to beginning researchers.
What's great about the Rod Library website? What needs work? We're carrying out the first major redesign in four years, and need your input to ensure we're on the right track. Students, faculty, staff, and community members -- make your opinion count by taking our VERY brief survey. Entry deadline is March 2nd.
Thanks to a collaboration between Rod Library and the Department of Languages and Literature, the poems, audio files, photos, and interviews of James Hearst have been added to a digital archive accessible to the public online.
Rod Library could not serve students and the UNI campus community without its dedicated faculty and staff. Each year, the university recognizes employees who have served milestone years at UNI. This year, 11 members of Rod Library’s faculty and staff were recognized for their many years of service. These staff members have dedicated their time to support student success and maintain a library institution that makes the university proud.
To commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2018, UNI Museum has partnered with the UNI Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education to present an exhibit of reproductions of the drawings made by Zinovii Tolkatchev, a Soviet artist who accompanied the Red Army forces that liberated the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp on January 27, 1945.
