It’s Been Four Years!

blog phot april 19 2017

Time flies when you’re having fun or creating a better library for the USD community! Copley Library’s blog hit its fourth year anniversary and we’re pretty excited with what the library has accomplished. Here is a recap of this past year:

  • Summer 2016 HVAC renovations and repair project: After a summer of repair and renovation, Copley Library received a new HVAC unit along with necessary repairs to improve air quality and temperature to make it more comfortable to study and use our services!
  • New Services 2017: We received a lot of requests for mobile printing and with the help of ITS, it launched in February. You can now print from your mobile device! If you’re having trouble with printing on a mobile device while at Copley, you can head over to the new ITS Help Desk located in Copley Library. They’re available Monday through Thursday from 3pm-9pm.  
  • Roy and Marian Holleman Copley Library Student Assistant Scholarship recipients: Copley awarded five student assistants this year with a $500 scholarship! Each recipient must be a current full-time USD undergraduate student with an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher. They must also be a current Student Assistant at Copley Library and have worked at the library for at least 1 semester. We’re very proud to have these scholarship winners be part of Copley Library!
  • 2017 Digital Initiatives Symposium will be on May 1-2. This is the library’s signature event on digital scholarship. This year’s event will cover topics such as digital humanities, open education resources, copyright, and institutional repositories.

We continue to strive for a great Copley Library and we hope you check out our blog every other Wednesday for updates!
