Give yourself the gift of someone to walk gently with you! Give yourself the gift of holy friendship!

Changes in Trexler Library

During the spring semester the library will be opening at 7:30am, Monday – Friday.  Services will be limited, but the labs will be open and available unless  there is a class scheduled at 8:00am (there will be a schedule posted outside each lab).  The computer and printers on the first floor will be available.  If you need a librarian, check out ASK Us!,  or for one-on-one help, use our Research Assistance Program.  Information for both can be found on our website.

We have also added 4 Mac workstations on the first floor of the library, one of which has a scanner attached.

The Assistive Technology workstation is now located on the first floor.

The Multimedia Lab (the small room to the right of the elevator on the second floor) will now be a Quiet Study Room.  If you need peace and quiet to study,  this is a place for you.  The room can accommodate a number of students, just remember….it’s a quiet zone!!

Also coming soon, snacks!  We will have an “Honor Box” snack system near the coffee machine on the first floor of the library.  An assortment of snacks will be available for purchase.

These changes come in response to your suggestions!  A special  thanks goes out to Sue McGorry’s Market Research class last semester.  The students did a wonderful job of surveying students as to what they would like to see in Trexler.  You spoke and we listened.

Outsmart the flu

Supervisors, department heads and other University leaders should take time this week to positively affect the flu fight. At this stage education is an important tool! Here are some important lessons…

  • The best way to prevent or lessen the severity of the flu is to get a flu shot
  • FREQUENTLY wash your hands with soap and warm water
  • Use hand sanitizer when warm water and soap are not readily available
  • Cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow or into a tissue, which you should throw away ASAP
  • If you get the flu, there are good prescription flu medicines available through your doctor
  • Self-isolate—don’t come into class or work for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone

There are good materials to be found at http://www.cdc.gov/flu/.
