Welcome Back – Spring Semester 2016



Welcome back Students and Faculty!  The Library has been busy over the break working with our Learning Commons partners to provide exceptional support for our RWU community.  Did you know we have a Web and Digital Services Department that can help you with digitization, website development, 3-D printing and electronics projects?  Come to the 2nd floor soon for a demo of what you can create in the library!
