Projects for 2013–14
LibGuides replacing Research QuickStart
Rodney A. Briggs Library will be migrating its subject matter research resources to a new “in the cloud” service called LibGuides. Besides a new, more easy to navigate interface, the new Research QuickStart will be expanded and updated to include more content, subjects and links.
Rodney A. Briggs Library will be changing its back-office catalog, eJournal Finder, FindIT, and some other servers to “in the cloud” Alma System hosted by Ex Libris. This is a U of M system-wide initiative. Details about how this will affect patrons will be communicated with the campus over the course of implementation.
Rodney A. Briggs Library has a new SMARTBoard located in the third floor study room (328) that students, faculty, and staff can utilize—thanks to funding from the MCSA technology funding allocation and in cooperation with the Office of Academic Success.
Science 2530 Lab Replacement
Computing Services, with the assistance of Technology Fee funding, will be replacing the computer lab in Science 2530 during Summer 2013.
