Deans Update: Toward a Clutter-Free New Year

We prepare this issue of In Circulation after coming in from the bitter cold, grateful to have kept those old long johns, hats and coats that might be unfashionable but keep us really warm. The notion of keeping things in case of a future need – or perhaps for nostalgia – causes many of us to hold onto stuff we may no longer use. If not managed well, it is easy to let our “just in case” stuff overtake our closets, basements, desks, as well as our inboxes and hard drives.

Deans Update: Reflections on 2013

Libraries have a mission to preserve history and they extend that to the organization itself in preparing the iconic annual report. However, unlike the many standardized rules applied to preserving, cataloging and ensuring access to the artifacts of cultural, scholarly, and organizational activities, there is no common playbook for creating a library annual report. Some are lavish books themselves, commemorating collections with gorgeous images and descriptions of unique acquisitions while others are used to thank people who reaffirm the library’s value with fiscal or advocacy support.

Seventh Scholarsip Event Features Research Of Rob D’Ovidio, PhD

The Libraries celebrated its seventh ScholarSip event on Tuesday, December 3, 2013, bringing over 50 people together to celebrate the end of the fall term. Rob D’Ovidio, PhD, provided an informational food for thought with his presentation titled The Rise of the Machine: the Evolution of the Computer and Crime. He stimulated discussion about identity theft, the alarming increase in possession of images of child pornography, and the conditions facilitated by information devices and communications by which crimes have become easier to commit and more difficult to guard against.
