If you had work published between June 2013 and May 2014, please take a moment to visit the online bibliography and make sure you and any student co-authors are represented accurately. Contact Diane Sotak (firstname.lastname@example.org or 8047) if we missed your publication or missed a UP student co-author.

The Clark Library set new records for numbers of people in the building every month during fall semester, according to Diane Sotak, library. On average, building use was higher than previous years by 73 percent. The 19 group study rooms were in high demand as well, with an average of 3,000 people using them per week. All of this activity has put the building through its paces and library staff continue to make adjustments as issues come to light. There is now a Clark Library FAQ that links to a Comments & Suggestions form, which is an easy way to provide them with direct feedback on how things are going, or to ask a question not addressed by the FAQ. For more information contact the library at 7111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
