Another banner semester for your UNO Libraries! Breaking down barriers to research and learning was the topic de jour this semester with Open Access Week touching on the topics of copyright, open access, and open educational resources. The week concluded with University of Kansas Dean, Kevin L. Smith, giving two great presentations on copyright and what authors and creators can do to make their intellectual contributions freely available to researchers.
Next time you’re in the library, take a look around. The Creative Production Lab is busy with its new supervisor, Charles Fisher, who is keeping up with the demands of 3D printing, laser cutting, and studio work. Archives & Special Collections has an exhibit on Senator Chuck Hagel running until December 21, 2018. Our service desks are bustling while providing headphones, laptops, and digital cameras to enterprising students. Our leadership team has been dedicated to reinvigorating Criss Library's interior with new furniture and brighter wall colors.
And our downtown branch, the KANEKO-UNO Library, welcomes its new manager, Erin Painter, this month. Erin has already been hard at work with our student assistants in redesigning some of the spaces in our creativity library. You’ll see further refinements in our specialized library as we work with KANEKO and our downtown community members.
Hope to see you at your UNO Libraries soon!
