Rod Library is always looking for ways to increase student success. We’ve always provided collections that support students’ academic work. We have comfortable, collaborative, technology-enhanced workspaces. We continue to build unique collections in a variety of formats. And, of course, we provide reference services, answering research questions and connecting students to all types of information. But we also know that students need more than just research help, so we look to campus partners to enhance the services we offer to students.
Rod Library has so many fantastic student workers each academic year. As this year’s graduates prepare to leave UNI and move onto their next step in life, we wanted to check in with one of our former student employees and see where she has gone in the year after her graduation.
Thanks to a generous donation from UNI alumna Mary Ann Bolton, Rod Library has begun annually awarding Undergraduate Research Awards to recognize and celebrate the extraordinary research, scholarship, and creative work of UNI’s undergraduate students.
Everyone knows that Rod Library serves students, faculty, and staff on a day-to-day basis, but Rod Library’s impact goes way beyond UNI’s campus! Every year, Rod Library impacts people across the state, country, and the world! Rod Library was recognized for all of this hard work in community engagement last week on Community Engagement Celebration Day. Rod Library entered three different posters into the competition on Community Engagement Celebration Day, and earned the Commitment to Service Award for one of these entries!
Aside from recognizing National Library Week, Rod Library is celebrating Student Employee Appreciation Week as well! To celebrate, we’d like to recognize just one of our many student employees who keep Rod Library running smoothly day in and day out.
National Library Week is here, and Rod Library is so excited to celebrate! This week is a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries across the nation and to promote library use and support. This year’s theme is “Libraries Lead,” and we would like to share with you many of the ways that Rod Library’s faculty and staff are leaders inside and outside of the library.
UNI ScholarWorks highlights UNI faculty, staff and student success by collecting, preserving and making digital research and scholarly output more accessible. The repository contains articles, journals, image galleries, theses, dissertations, conferences, and much more.
