With a looming Course Pack deadline, faculty may have copyright questions. There are legal ways to avoid having to create expensive-for students-to-print course packs. Contact your assigned library liaison for assistance with questions about using copyrighted materials in Blackboard, class handouts, or in course packs.
Librarians can help you use RightFind Academic – Copyright Clearance Center‘s annual academic license. CCC updated their system considerably this summer, and now requires a logon if you intend to use this from off-campus. Librarians can help: verify citations; determine a copyright owner; set up a Course Reserve; or permalink licensed library resources into Blackboard. Please take a look at the Copyright Subject Guide.
It’s inevitable. That conversation that most college students hate… but you know it’s coming – at the Thanksgiving dinner table. “So, dear, what do you plan to do after college?” asks that formerly favorite aunt, uncle or grandparent.
If you’re at a loss, consider taking a career interest inventory to see what jobs match your interests, attitudes, and potential skills. Ferguson’s Career Guidance Center has one with 180 (quick) questions that will create a list of potential careers of interest and links to quality information about those careers. Other assessments are available in CLS100 classes, and in Counseling.

“Domestic violence (also called intimate partner violence (IPV), domestic abuse or relationship abuse) is a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship.”
The National Domestic Violence Hotline can help if you are abused, know someone who is abused, or, want to be more educated about the potential signs of abuse.
The US Centers for Disease Control calls domestic violence a “serious preventable public health problem,” and have a streaming video, What is Intimate Partner Violence? that explains some of the challenges.
