"Cedar Valley in World War I" Lecture

UNI Museum Banner

At 3pm, January 29th, Bob Neymeyer, Historian at the Grout Museum District, will speak on the challenges that German –Americans in Iowa were confronted with during World War I. The demand for “100% Americanism” was administered by both public and private groups who distrusted the loyalty of these hyphenated Americans. The tactics ranged from intimidation and vandalism to a state law stating English was the only legal language to be used in public.

Rod Scheduler: Reserve Your Study Room

On September 8th, the library launched it's new scheduling software called Rod Scheduler.  This allows students, staff, and faculty to schedule their own study rooms.  Not only can you schedule it yourself, but you can schedule in advance!

You no longer need to check out a key at the Circulation Desk.  Rooms will remain unlocked.  Current policy applies in that an individual may check out only 1 room per day for a maximum of 3 hours. 

Reservations take priority so be sure to book your room!

Theatrical Arts and Society: Harlem Renaissance

Stop by the main floor of the Rod library to check out the Harlem Renaissance posters.  This exhibit is the product of the class Theatrical Arts & Society (THEA 1002-05) and their study of the Harlem Renaissance. Working in groups, students found a compelling pieces of visual art from the movement and used them as inspiration for their own creative works. These creative works demonstrate an understanding of the artistic movement, the frustration and triumph of creating something out of nothing, and the process of making and learning.
