New Career Videos

Take a look at new streaming videos on Careers and Job Searching! (Off-Campus users should logon with last name and 7-digit Raider number.)  Newly-covered careers include: phlebotomy technician; welder; and, transplant coordinator.  Job search topics include: asking for a raise; selling yourself via a phone or video interview; and, creating an effective cover letter  – and many more!  These streaming videos are part of our Films on Demand database.

We’ve got more great resources on the Careers Subject Guide.

Library Space Morphs!

Media Shelving and Stairs to the 2nd floorTo better serve our students and faculty, Library & Learning Commons space continues to morph!

The west side of the 1st floor now has additional seating options which allow visiting classes to  sit together.  The DVD collection was moved onto low shelving so students can see the stairway to the 2nd floor.  Next to the Reference Collection in the southeast corner, space has been converted to much-needed Group Study rooms, both equipped with a whiteboard,  and one with a Steelcase conference table with presentation screens.  Pretty slick!

Steelcase Conference TableOur Meditation & Prayer Room pilot project has ended.  Responding to comments for the need for a quieter space, that function has moved upstairs to the Quiet Study area in the NE corner – makes sense!  We’re  also delighted to have  a remodeled, lockable, handicapped-accessible restroom serving all genders in that NE corner of the 2nd floor.

All Gender handicapped access restroomCome on over, grab a cup of  ‘Joe, and walk through your ever-changing Library & Learning Commons.
