During the summer months, in collaboration with university partners and friends of the university, we improved the second floor of I.D. Weeks, added new resources, and improved access to resources. Highlights are found in the following pages. As the new academic year begins, I invite you to tell us how we are both helping you, students and faculty, reach your academic goals and how we can improve. In particular, please respond to our LibQual survey that was developed by the Association of Research Libraries and scheduled for late October. We want to hear from you. Daniel Daily Dean of Libraries
