The Library is proud to announce that we will be moving to our new website at the beginning of the Spring 2015 semester. All of the functionality and resources on our current website will be moving to the new university website platform. Want to check it out now? Go to neiu.edu/library for a preview of the new Ronald Williams Library website.
The Library is supporting the College of Business and Management’s One Book per Semester (OBPS) initiative during the spring 2015 semester. The Library has a copy of Keeping Up with the Quants: Your Guide to Understanding and Using Analytics by Thomas H. Davenport. The book is on two-hour reserve at the Circulation Desk that is located on the north side of the Library’s first floor.
The copy is listed under the course MNGT OBPS.
This is just a reminder that all library materials are due back by Friday, December 12. Please contact the Circulation Desk at 773-442-4401 if you have any questions regarding your library account or any items you have borrowed. Please clear any library fines and/or fees before the semester ends to prevent any holds on your account which can potentially cause issues with Spring 2015 registration, transcripts, etc.
The Library will be closed Saturday, December 20 – Thursday, January 1. Please note that we reopen Friday, January 2 but are closed Saturday, January 3 – Sunday, January 4. We begin regular semester hours on Monday, January 5, 2015. The outside Book Return box will be available for materials returned when the Library is closed.
Thanks to all, enjoy the semester break and congratulations to our new graduates!
A new library research guide has been created for NEIU students taking classes at the University Center of Lake County. Please visit this page for information regarding NEIU services, requesting books and articles, ID cards, printing, and getting in touch with your subject librarian.
We are pleased to announce the debut of a new collection of digitized archival materials. Campus History – Selected Text and Images highlights items from the University Archives covering the history of NEIU from the 1960s to the early 1980s. Included are items documenting campus construction, student life, and visits to campus by prominent public figures. These items originate from photographic prints, student published periodicals, and two monographs published by the University.
This collection is NEIU’s first contribution to the CARLI Digital Collections repository. Over the coming years we hope to publish several more digital collections on a variety of topics. Stay tuned!
