Congratulations, Ninna!

We are very pleased to announce that Ninna Mendoza is the winner of the 2015 Tredway Library Prize for First-Year Research for her paper “Battle of the Streets: Food Cart Edition.”

The Tredway Library Prize for First-Year Research recognizes an outstanding research paper written by a first-year Augustana student for a class in the Liberal Studies or Honors sequence. The award promotes students’ active engagement in the processes of library research and encourages them to synthesize library research skills with the reading, writing and critical thinking skills developed in the first-year sequence.

Please join me in congratulating Ninna and watch for upcoming announcements about a ceremony (to be held early in Winter Term) to celebrate her achievement!

ILLIAD down today

Under Construction

Illiad, the program that allows Augustana patrons to request items through Interlibrary loan, will be down today (7/29) and tomorrow (7/30) for maintenance. If you need to request something, as always, we encourage you to use I-Share to access resources available from the Illinois academic libraries.

We thank you for your patience as the system undergoes routine maintenance.
