Ever wondered how the library creates digital collections? Have you heard about our institutional repository and wondered “what the heck is that” or “why should I care”? Then mark your calendar and stop by Lindell Library this Friday, August 11, between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m. Step inside our digitization lab and see how we preserve Auggie history through the ages.

This is also your chance to meet the newest member of the library team, Stewart Van Cleve, Digital Archivist and Research Services Librarian.

Remember: that’s Friday, August 11, 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.

There are one-line, two-line, and three-line options, plus a special three-line option for students and alumni who put their grad year on the badge (for example ’14).

New Copiers Installed Next Week

submitted by

New copiers will be installed around campus the week of August 14. If you have a Canon copier in your area, it will be replaced by a Sharp copier. I think you will like the pull-out keyboard (in addition to the touchscreen) if you scan to other e-mail addresses and add a subject or notes to your scan. I think you will also appreciate the ease of using your fob to access the copier rather than entering a code, and having a one-touch button to scan to your e-mail. Training will be provided at the machine as soon as it is installed. You can share that training with others in your area who are not available or call the Copy Center at x1054 afterward to schedule follow-up training.

Installation schedule:
Monday, August 14 – Christensen Center, Urness, Mortensen
Tuesday, August 15 – Lindell Library, Oren Gateway Center
Wednesday, August 16 – Anderson Hall, Memorial Hall
Thursday, August 17 – Science, Sverdrup
Friday, August 18 – Foss, Music, Si-Melby, Kennedy, Ice Arena, Luther Seminary, and Rochester

Note that the Copy Center will be getting new machines too, so there may be a time early in the week where response time to your copy requests may be delayed.
