Tip 13: 3D Printing

Tip 13:  3D Printing.  About three years ago we opened a 3D Printing Studio in Rodgers Library.  Services offered include: 3D printing, 3D scanning, training workshops, and do it yourself 3D printing.  Supporting 3D design and conversion software is installed on the workstations within the 3D Studio. The 3D printers are capable of creating a multitude of 3D plastic objects.

Tip 8: Instruction

Tip 8:  Instruction.  Rodgers Library likes to share information about its services and collections and further help users achieve information competencies.  We can prepare custom lectures or workshops focused on any topic of interest.  If you choose, a librarian can come to one of your departmental meetings or a class which you teach to do a presentation.  In addition, we often conduct instruction inside Rodgers Library on high-interest topics.  If you have a request, please contact us or submit a request using this form.

Social Bookmarking a Useful Tool

On the Internet, it’s very easy to find valuable information. And the process of discovery has become even more interesting with the arrival of Web 2.0 networking tools that allow for social bookmarking. Many faculty are engaged in social bookmarking. The possibilities seem endless. Social bookmarking can be used to improve instruction and research, even enhance professional development. Perhaps best of all, content in social bookmarking sites is easy to access. An RSS feed can push new content to your portal. And while on a site, search boxes and tags help find just the information you want to read, view, or listen to. The Rodgers Library Homepage features a handy Widget for social bookmarking. To see how this works, enter in the USER box the keyword RodgersLibrary (as a single word) and observe how finding pages on Rodgers Web site is made easier. If you want to learn more about social bookmarking, read “7 Things You Should Know about Social Bookmarking.” This Educause page explains how it all works.
