Peeple of Interest

Peeps are everywhere during the Easter season. These Edward Hopper peeps seem a little down, but for some classic peep silliness, see how the peeps learned to use the library.

Celebration Abstracts Due Today

Yipes, it's already here - the deadline for submitting your creative and scholarly work for the first ever Celebration of Creative Inquiry. It's not that hard. Just line up a faculty sponsor (they want to help, really) and fill out a simple form. Join all the other students who are sharing their work, and sharing the excitement.

And no, you don't have to be a mad scientist to participate. Really. All kinds of work - research, creative projects, things an organization has been working on - are welcome.

Archives Storms the Library!

The college archives has placed an exhibit about the tornado of 1998 on the main floor, between the new books and the reference desk just in time for the 10-year anniversary. It's certainly an event to remember - and luckily, the archives is all about preserving our memories.

MnLINK Takes a Holiday

MnLINK, the union catalog for Minnesota public and academic libraries, will be offline during a server move starting Friday evening, March 14th. It should be back online Sunday afternoon, March 16th. This will not affect our catalog, or the MnPALS shared system, which is a different thing altogether.

We do, however, wish we had more imagination when it came to naming catalogs.
