Books for Carol

A variety of books about horses, purchased in memory of Carol Lonning by the staff of the McIntyre Library, are now on display in Instructional Media Center. Lonning, who worked in Cataloging, passed away in January after a brief illness. The books about horses - fiction and nonfiction, for younger and older readers - were ordered for the IMC using money collected through staff donations. Carol was an avid lover of horses and riding and she often shared stories with us about her adventures. We hope that the books will inspire others to get outside this spring - either on a horse, or by doing something else that gives you pleasure. Enjoy!

Students Fund Two New Library Resources

The Information Technology Commission of the Student Senate recently voted to commit $19,000 in student technology fee monies to supplement library resources. This came about as a result of conversartions Chair Aaron Brewster and Interim Director Chris Cox have had regarding the library's flat materials budget (no increase since 2001), the increase in materials prices each year and our struggles to continue to offer the resources students and faculty need to conduct research in their disciplines.

The $19,000 will be used to fund two new databases. $6,000 will be used to fund the one-time archive fee for Arts & Science Collection V of JSTOR, adding an additional 120 journals to an already large archive of onine journals in a variety if disciplines. The other $13,000 will be used to fund the one-time archive fee for ArtStor, which is also being supplemented by funds fromthe departments of Art, History and Geography. ArtStor currently contains nearly 500,000 images documenting artistic traditions across all times and cultures and embraces architecture, painting, sculpture, photography, decorative arts, and design as well as many other forms of visual and material culture. Images found in the database are of high quality, and can be linked in D2L, used and presentations, and as teaching materials, accessible 24/7.

Thanks so much to the students for funding these resources! The entire campus will benefit from your generosity.
