Upgrades to the computers in the Lab and Reference area

We will be upgrading the set of tools students, faculty, and staff have available in the Library. Specifically, we are going to upgrade our computers to Office 2013. This will bring the Library up-to-date with the other computer labs on campus. While the upgrade is underway, the Lab and the computers at Reference on the 2nd floor will still be available for use. However, during this process individual computers will be unavailable until the upgrade is complete, so please plan accordingly. Thanks for your patience!Upgrade_info

Jason

It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the passing of one of our own. Librarian Jason Kneip passed away early this morning. He will be missed by all of his family here at the library and AUM. Rest in peace, dear one.

Story-time in the Library

The children from the AUM Early Learning Center will be visiting the library today for Story-time. Library faculty and staff members will read stories and pass out popcorn to the children. This is the second visit by the children this semester and we hope to have them back again soon.
