Rod Library will be offering two workshops next week to help faculty incorporate library resources and services into their eLearning courses. To register for these workshops and view details about other summer workshops, please go to the ITS Faculty Workshop Calendar.
Did you know that the library has over 130 online guides in a wide variety of subject areas? These were created by librarians and library staff; they can help you to find the best and most reliable sources on a topic. Find out the best resources to use for your class assignments, or for research, quickly and easily.
The guides are searchable by keywords, tags, and subjects. Click here to get started -- and you could save some time, finish assignments more efficiently, and go out and enjoy the summer weather!
Beginning Monday morning, May 21, the computers in the five east/west rows of computer desks in the Electronic Resource Area on second floor will be unavailable in order to allow us to replace the carpeting under the desks. We are excited about this project. This area is one of the most used areas of the building, and the stained and worn carpeting shows how popular it is.
Rod Library will be offering two sets of workshops in May and June to help faculty incorporate library resources and services into their eLearning courses. To register for these workshops and view details about other summer workshops, please go the ITS Faculty Workshop Calendar.
Congratulations to Kelsey - the grand prize winner in the National Library Week Trivia contest. Enjoy your Nook!
Rod Library has just started a site license to the electronic version of "The Chronicle of Higher Education." Currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff can access this title from any computer on campus and, after authenticating with their CatID, from off-campus as well.
Rod Library wants to hear your ideas about printed/paper books and electronic books (e-books). A survey will be conducted from Monday, April 16 through Tuesday, May 1, to learn the UNI community's preferences for printed/paper books or e-books. The survey will be online (http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22FCJ8Q5YLV) and printed copies may be found in the library lobby. For more information, email Leila Rod-Welch (Leila.firstname.lastname@example.org).
The World Bank announced on April 10th "that it will implement a new Open Access policy for its research outputs and knowledge products, effective July 1, 2012.
Facebook decided to do site maintenance today and the Rod Library page (with trivia question #3) would show up, then disappear, show up, then disappear. Frustrating!!!
Because of the problems with the site on Wednesday, we will run question 3 again on Thursday so you all have a chance to enter. We'll put question 4 on Friday and question 5 on Monday, April 16.
We'll announce the winner on Friday, April 20!!!!!
