News & Notes...

Faculty Survey:

Thank you to everyone who filled out our recent Faculty Survey. We are still digesting the results and will be sharing some of the feedback with you and other parties over the next few months.

For now, suffice it to say that we were pleased and flattered by all of the kind, supportive, and thoughtful comments we received. Wow! And rest assured that we will take steps to work on areas where we received negative comments or suggestions for improvements.

By the way, our suggestion to provide space in the library for University Writing Center (UWC) consultations has generated a lot of buzz. Please know that we have passed your feedback on to the UWC and are hopeful that it will make a difference. Stay tuned for future progress on this issue.

DVD Recommendations:

We know you are always looking for more audiovisual materials. Here's what we've done in the past and plan to do in the future in this area:

First, building the audiovisual collection has always been a high priority for us (the media collection has grown more than 200% since we opened in 2004), and you may not be aware of all the titles we do own: please check out our updated DVD/VHS list or stop by the library to browse through our titles.

Second, we do hope to continue buying more DVDs, and we are looking for faculty recommendations. Please send us ( or stop by with your DVD title suggestions, and we will buy as many as the budget allows. Any titles we cannot purchase immediately will be added to our "wish list" for future purchase.

Thrid, a few more hospitality/business audiovisual titles are available in streaming video format through our FMG - Films on Demand database. You can browse through the titles or search in a variety of ways. Let us know if you need any assistance using the FMG database.

Reminders for Next Semester:

As you prepare for your Spring courses, don't forget to:

  1. Let us know if you would like to assign a Research Tutorial to, or request a face-to-face library instruction session for, your Spring course(s). You can sign up using our Instruction Request Form, or just stop by and chat with us.
  2. Stop by if you would like to place any materials on Course Reserve in the library.
