Sustainability facts

By Jeanne Brown on March 30, 2009 12:03 PM | Permalink
The ASL restroom has been enhanced with short facts on sustainability topics. Facts are selected and posted by graduate assistant Arul Tippabattuni. These facts will be replaced each week through the semester. If you have facts you'd like to include comment here or send to jeanne.brown@unlv.edu. Please indicate the source of the fact! Facts up week of April 27, 2009: Americans are producing more and more waste with each passing year. In 1960, the average American threw away 2.7 pounds of trash a day. Today, the average American throws away 4.5 pounds of trash every day! What are we going to do with all that trash? http://recycleraccoon.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/landfill.jpg

Library survey responses

Architecture Studies Library patrons were generous with their time during the recent LibQual survey. 111 responses were received! This was the highest number of any of the library branches (though not for Lied Library patrons of course!). The survey will actually stay open for a few more days -- until March 26 -- for anyone that hasn't yet taken it and would like to get their input included in the responses. Once it is closed you will be hearing more information about the feedback that has been given. In all, the Libraries have gotten 1267 responses. Thank you!! The link to LibQual is http://survey.libqual.org/index.cfm?ID=705553 Reminder: We will be giving a $5 gift coupon to the Book N Bean to thank 50 randomly chosen survey takers. (E-mails go into a pool quite separate from survey responses. Survey responses are anonymous!)

This year's School of Architecture Student Photography Exhibit is up in the Architecture Studies Library. Come by and examine the photos of the "Vegas You Don't Know." The Rebel Yell has an article on the exhibit at http://unlvrebelyell.com/2009/03/09/%e2%80%98the-vegas-you-don%e2%80%99t-know%e2%80%99/ A portion of the exhibit is the material taken by the SOA to the Adelaide Fringe Festival. See their online display at http://faculty.unlv.edu/gnpn/rebelsinfringe/movie.html The exhibit will be up through March. Kudos and thanks to Crystal Macaspac, exhibit organizer.
