One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.

Psalm 27:4

RefWorks Contract

Many free citation management tools are now available on the web. RefWorks, a legacy citation management tool costing the college approximately $5,000/year, is under-utilized. Library staff, the Educational Technology Committee, and the Information and Web Technology Committee recommend the RefWorks contract not be renewed in July. This means anyone using RefWorks will need to export and move citations from RefWorks to a new citation management tool by June 30.  Those with RefWorks content should set up a time with a librarian to migrate content to Zotero prior to June 30.

Mindful marketing tips

Did you know…

…the Office of Marketing and Communications creates the site marketing marquees you see in the lobbies of the buildings? These marquees help tell the story of our students, faculty, alumni and programs to prospective students touring campus. To initiate the design of a new lobby marquee, please begin by filling out the form at Our project coordinator, Karen Garlinger, will then set up a short meeting to discuss your project goals with the design team. If you’d like updated or new marquees in your building lobby before students are back in the fall, now is the time to schedule production!
