Welcome to the final fall issue of Between the Lines, an e-newsletter created specifically with UNLV faculty, staff, administrators, and graduate students in mind.
In this issue, themed CELEBRATE, we highlight the acquisition of statistical datasets offering researchers access to nearly 19 billion data points. The Libraries also celebrate the first ten thousand pages of digitized Nevada newspapers being published and accessible through a two-year, $311,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
In addition to our collections, we feature the many ways subject liaison librarians collaborate with faculty on the research and education mission of the university. We invite you to learn how the Special Collections Division partnered with faculty to integrate the use of primary sources into their courses. We also celebrate the arrival of Andrea Wirth, our new digital scholarship librarian responsible for coordinating Digital Scholarship@UNLV.
Between the Lines will return to update you on important library news in the spring. Until then, visit the Libraries’ News Blog (available at www.library.unlv.edu) for new information weekly.
We are preparing for the spring semester with a focus on programs and services that fulfill our mission to define the new academic research library—bringing people and information together in innovative ways.
