Resource Trial: PolicyMap

PolicyMap is a cloud-based, U.S. national data and mapping tool and analytics platform with multidisciplinary applications for college faculty, researchers, and students.  Faculty can use it in their curriculum and research related to social sciences, public health, urban studies, real estate and housing analysis, community and economic developments, public administration, policy and political science, education, business, economics, statistics, geography, and more.  Users can leverage thousands of U.S. indicators to perform demographic and socioeconomic analysis, from a neighborhood census block group in many cases, up to a national level, as well as create custom regions, for their research and studies. The trial runs through April 24th.

Bring a Librarian to Class

Give your students access to on-demand research help right from their eLearning course shell with an embedded librarian! When you add the librarian role to eLearning, your students can contact their librarian and get feedback through discussion posts and other interactive assignments right from their eLearning course shell. This personalized contact is even more important for online students who rarely come to campus. Contact the library today to learn more about this exciting option.

Same Face, New Place

We are sad, no happy, no sad, okay happy that librarian Krysta Vincent has moved into a new role with Institutional Research as Data Visualization Specialist. Congratulations Krysta! We know you love your data! If you previously worked with Krysta on projects and need assistance please contact the library and we can help you.

Library Space: Pop Up Classroom

The pop-up classroom can be used as a space for your class to work collaboratively in the library. The space has lots of lovely windows but no technology. Students can use the space as open study space when it is not reserved for class. Use this link to schedule the Pop-Up Classroom.
