Special thanks to the Campus Exteriors Development Committee and Chancellor Sorensen for proposing and funding the new perennial garden in front of the Library.

And a HUGE thanks to all the workers on the grounds crew who worked so hard to install it.  It is beautiful and all of us in the building really appreciate how it enhances our outdoor spaces.  We also love that the plantings contribute to the campus sustainability goals.

Welcome Janice Conti

Janice Conti is the new Cataloging/Reference Librarian. She is head of the Cataloging/Processing Work Group and says the puzzle-like aspect of cataloging is what drew her to this area of library work. She enjoys trying to determine who will want or need a given resource, the manner in which that user is likely to search to find the resource, and how to best guide him or her to the resource through use of the library systems.

Janice earned her Masters in Library and Information Studies from the University of Iowa and a Bachelor's of Science in English and Journalism from MacMurray College.
