Did You Know…

In our last Speak Out gathering Lynn mentioned that she would like to bring back the “Did You Know” feature in the Library Gazette. Did you know… I’m an NC native and habitually proselytize about barbeque (pork, of course). Because both of my parents hail from Eastern NC and I grew up here in W-S,...

ZSR Zephyrs Tie for First in Today’s Olympic Challenge

The Zephyrs were ready but not thrilled about having to brave the rain for today’s scheduled challenge, Frisbee Golf on Davis Field. We were puzzled to recieve an email this morning saying that the scheduled games were off due to the inclement weather and we were to report to Reynolds Gym at noon instead. Not...

Working Around the Power Outage at ZSR

Starbucks became even more popular than usual on Thursday as the staff with offices in the Wilson Wing of ZSR chose to relocate there due to the power outage resulting from the damaged main transformer for the Wilson WIng. Power outlets were at a premium and power strips became a hot commodity! The study rooms... Continue reading “Working Around the Power Outage at ZSR”

Access Services Retreat

On Monday, June 8th, the Access Services Team took a day long retreat. We needed and wanted to stick close to the library, and since we have such great study rooms now in the library, we used the study room on the west side of the building, (near the Graduate Student Lounge) as our home...

Instructional Technology Meeting

A year ago, Steve Cramer initiated a get together of UNCG and WFU library staff to talk about reference technology. We had a great time visiting our colleagues, talking about common issues, and brainstorming about the future of our distinct part of the field. Yesterday, we met for a second time. A similar group from... Continue reading “Instructional Technology Meeting”

Renate, We Hardly Knew Ye

With a lump in my throat, I must report that Renate has retired from the University. Her last day at work was Friday. She has been planning this for a while, but blood-swore us to absolute secrecy until she was gone. She specifically would not allow any kind of party or celebration of her many...
