Lots of changes at Cofrin Library in the past year – new equipment, new resources, new staff – it’s hard to keep up! With that in mind, we’re having a party! All faculty and staff are invited to a Library Open House – An Afternoon of Desserts and Snacks at the Library – on Wednesday, August 29 from Noon-1pm on the 4th floor of Cofrin Library.

Whether it’s popular reading or research materials, new databases, or equipment like iPads and digital cameras, come learn more about the vast services, resources, and spaces for faculty, staff, and students.

You will have the opportunity to meet with staff from around the Library as we show you how each department contributes to making research easier for you as well as your students. Besides research, we also have exciting spaces to accommodate a variety of faculty, staff, and student needs.

Need further incentive? Besides desserts and snacks, all faculty and staff who attend will be entered to win door prizes! In addition, faculty members will have the opportunity to apply for a research fellowship: The Council of UW Libraries has established The University of Wisconsin Research Network, an annual program that offers access to UW-Madison’s electronic collections for selected faculty across the UW System. Cofrin Library will select 8 faculty members who attend this event to participate in the research program. Recipients will be given access to the vast electronic resources available through UW Madison for the period of one academic year.
