OBH, always, was a great way to communicate the accomplishments throughout the Purdue University Libraries and School Information Studies. Music was provided by our own Michael Lewis, too!  Michael Lewis

Student Employment Job Fair

Tonya Mull and Teresa Balser

Tonya Mull and Teresa Balser

Purdue Libraries and School of Information Studies student supervisors group, SSG, participated in the Student Employment Job Fair April 3 at Purdue.

Purdue Libraries and School of Information Studies staff set up a table to inform students of the multiple opportunities for employment within our unit. Information was provided concerning the online job site, units, wages, hours, how to apply, and the criteria for employment. Several students asked questions and have already applied! This was a successful recruitment idea and will be continued in the future.

STEW HVAC Renovation Progress

Phase IV of the Stewart Center HVAC Renovation Project is now underway. This required the relocation of personnel on the second and third floors of the oldest part of Stewart Center. Departments included in this move were: Purdue Libraries and School of Information Studies administration, human resources, business office, marketing communications, and advancement (all on second floor), as well as Purdue Libraries and School of Information Studies information technology division from room 363. The personnel from the second floor are now located on the first floor of the old engineering library in the A.A. Potter Engineering Center. The information technology staff from the third floor were relocated to the Research Data offices in room 174, as well as the swing space (rooms G50 and G62B) of Stewart Center. All of these departments, with the addition of the Resources Services Department, are currently in the basement of Potter  (which was moved at the beginning of this project from 364 and 370 in Stewart Center), will be moved back later this year to their original spaces. The final phase of this project, Phase V, will then be started and include the first through fifth floors of the HSSE Library Stacks
