A Toast to GriffinShare

We have been quietly rolling out GriffinShare, our new campus institutional repository. We have uploaded more than five hundred items so far, and Beth Newton's 'How-To' Manual for Doing Standard Statistics in R was our five-hundredth download! In November, we hosted a formal launch with a virtual toast from Nancy Blattner.

And now we are ready for the real work to begin. This spring, we'll begin reaching out to faculty to promote their work and develop new content.

FCC Update

Taylor Library has received TWO grants from the Fontbonne Community Connection this year – one to develop a focused collection dedicated to diversity and inclusion resources and another to purchase new furniture. 

We're in the weeds ordering materials for the former (keep an eye on THE LIST as it evolves and let us know if you have ideas for additional titles).

We put out a survey to get student input and ideas for the new furniture. The big winners – a second massage chair and a brand-new sectional  have already been delivered (stress-management is important). A table and barstools for the coffeehouse are on their way.
