New iPad Stand

The SRC/Technology Department has acquired a new iPad stand. It will be tested in the SRC as a library catalog kiosk but will be available next month as an event signage post. It can be plugged in, locked, and has a literature display. Please see Mrs. Weaver if you would like to reserve the stand.

2nd Trimester Research Projects

As you move forward with research projects, please consider asking Mrs. Weaver to teach a mini lesson on using the updated library catalog, BadgerLink, and WISCAT. Many students have been coming to the SRC not exactly sure where to start. In about 10-15 minutes, your students could be better prepared to tackle that research project. Contact Mrs. Weaver to schedule a time.
