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 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).

Eating snack foods in the Library has been allowed for several months now. However we have had questions from students, faculty and staff about what types of foods are considered snack foods and what kinds are not. To help everyone with this quandary we updated the Library's Food and Drink Policy to include more specific examples of foods that are OK to eat in the building.
