Welcome to a special fall preview edition of Between the Lines, an e-newsletter created specifically with UNLV staff, faculty, administrators, and graduate students in mind. Whether you’re new to the UNLV community and reading Between the Lines for the first time or are returning to campus to prepare for the fall semester, we invite you to discover key resources, services, and librarians available to contribute to your research and teaching.
In this issue, themed CREATE, we share with you two series of workshops and seminars designed to support your research and teaching. The first is a series of research workshops taught by library faculty covering a wide array of topics that interest both faculty and students. The second seminar series, created by UNLV’s instructional development and research services, will bring campus experts and librarians together to offer workshops to early-career faculty and instructors. Topics include locating funding opportunities, lecturing for learning, and grading and responding to students’ work.
We also highlight the recent induction of our director of special collections as a Fellow of the Society of American Archivists; our collaboration with the Office of Information Technology to integrate online course reserves with WebCampus; and we describe how publication-quality images can be downloaded for free and used in academic publications through ARTstor.
For teaching faculty and instructors, we have created a syllabus statement you can share with your students with details on how to take advantage of the research consultation services provided by library faculty.
Between the Lines is published twice a semester. Until our next issue, visit the Libraries’ News Blog (available at library.unlv.edu) for new information weekly.
As we prepare to welcome new and returning undergraduate and graduate students to campus, we encourage you to join us in our mission to connect people and information together in innovative ways.
