Miscellaneous

ARE YOU FIRST GENERATION STAFF, FACULTY, ADMINISTRATOR?
Making Excellence Inclusive (MEI) is looking for individuals who are first generation across the campus community to join our First Gen Friends and Family (FGFF). You just need to be willing to wear a smile and extend a warm welcome to Future Panther First Gens. We will provide you with the resources that we share. Be minimally involved (wear your T-shirt), very involved (become an FGFF mentor), or anything in between. Wear your T-shirt during admitted students days, open houses, Fridays, happy days!

For T-shirt, see here.

For more information contact Catherine Polydore (cpolydore@eiu.edu).

BOOTH LIBRARY ADDS 1,024 ITEMS IN FEBRUARY
During February, Booth Library acquired and cataloged 1,024 new items. The lists can be viewed here. These acquisitions include donations to the library, re-cataloged library items, freely available government publications and consortium-wide purchases. The recent university spending freeze (due to statewide budget issues) has limited the number of new items being added to library collections.

The list is arranged by location: Ballenger Teachers Center, Books, Electronic Resources, Illinois and Federal Documents, Maps, Media, Reference Collection, Special Collections and University Archives. The titles are listed by call number within each location. Please contact Karen Whisler, head of Collection Development, at 581-7551 or klwhisler@eiu.edu if you have questions.
