Help the Libraries, Help Yourself: Amnesty for Overdue and Lost Books

This May, the UNCG Libraries are changing circulation systems and want as many items as possible returned before May 16 so that accounts may be cleared before the switch.

To help the effort we are offering fee and fine amnesty! From April 24-May 16, you may return Jackson or Harold Schiffman Music Library Lost or Overdue books and pay no fines or fees. No questions asked!

Here's the "fine" print: Fines and fees will only be waived for Libraries books returned during this period. No credit will be given towards fines or fees for reserves, technology or AV equipment, DVDs, damaged items, or on any items returned prior to April 24.

As always, no refunds or credits can be given on items more than 6 months overdue.

If you are not ready to return some library materials, please plan to renew those items before May 16.

UNCG wins federal grant to recruit, train culturally diverse librarians

A federal grant of almost $450,000 will support UNCG’s Master of Library and Information Studies (MLIS) program as it continues to recruit and train culturally diverse librarians. The Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian grant program, administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), will provide $442,063 to support the Academic and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) Scholars: New Americans for Community College Librarianship. ACE Scholars is designed to increase cultural diversity in UNCG’s program and in the library and information field as a whole. Principal investigator Dr. Nora Bird, assistant professor of library and information studies, and co-principal investigator Michael Crumpton, assistant dean of UNCG University Libraries, say increasing diversity in the field is essential to keep up with the changing face of America and the Triad.
