Southern Nevada will have a rare opportunity to view an original First Folio of the works of William Shakespeare from 1623 when a traveling exhibit arrives at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas University Libraries this September. UNLV University Libraries was selected as Nevada’s host site for “First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library,” a national touring exhibit that will be on display in Special Collections from Sept. 1-29. The Folger Shakespeare Library, in association with Cincinnati Museum Center and the American Library Association, is touring a First Folio of Shakespeare in 2016 to all 50 states, Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico.
The Curriculum Materials Library (CML) is changing its name to the Teacher Development & Resources Library (TDRL). Located in the College of Education, the CML/TDRL is a branch library of the UNLV University Libraries. The name change better represents the diverse collections within this specialized branch library, as it offers a variety of resources that support teachers in the P - 12 arena and education professionals including principals, counselors, and other specialists.
Did you know that the UNLV University Libraries are not just for students and faculty? As the only research library in Southern Nevada, we offer free information resources to the business community. Through the four-part Business by the Book workshop series, you will learn what resources are available to you and how to use them effectively.
More changes are coming to the media collections of the UNLV
University Libraries – all to increase access to media
resources such as films and to enable ease of use for students
both in and out of the classroom. Over the summer of 2016, media resources such as DVDs and videotapes currently housed in
closed stacks behind the Media Resources Desk on the 1st Floor
will be moved to open shelving in other areas of the library
where they can be browsed like books.
As part of the Lied Library Space Enhancement Project, construction will be taking place in the building during the summer. Beginning Friday, May 13, crews will be in Lied Library to complete several projects that may impact users. The majority of the projects will take place on the 2nd floor, and effort will be made to minimize disruption to those that use our facility.
