The Center is now accepting applications for its 2014-15 cycle of Eadington fellowships. There is a major difference with this year's program: Resident (four week) fellowships can now be scheduled during the summer as well as during the academic year. Here is the full text of the announcement:

 

The Center for Gaming Research at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (http://gaming.unlv.edu) invites academic faculty and graduate students to apply for the 2014-15 cycle of William R. Eadington fellowships, which facilitate research into many aspects of both gambling and Las Vegas at UNLV Special Collections.  Although primarily in English, the holdings include many texts in French, German, and Italian spanning the 17th to 21st centuries as well as manuscript collections, casino corporate archives, promotional and publicity files, and government publications. 

The Center awards two kinds of Eadington fellowships.

Search Lite

WDS would like to announce Search Lite, the new design for the Express Stations. WDS, working with Wendy, Vicki, and the Systems Department, sought to define the function the stations should serve within the library, as well as to identify a number of problems with the former Express Station design. We then refined the design and functionality of the Express Stations to reflect those discussions.

Wendy and Vicki determined the function of the Express Stations is to perform quick catalog searches, and nothing more. No internet, no electronic reserves, not even access to our main library website.

We also identified a number of errors with the former Express Station configuration. If you've used an express station, you may have noticed all of the broken links to book cover images. Also, if a patron typed in an external address (such as google.com), the express station would time out, but provide no information as to why this was happening. Not too user friendly!

In response to these discussions, we made the following changes:
