Research Commons News: March 2 – March 14

New Blog!

The Research Commons has a new, updated blog! Our previous blog about the development of the Research Commons will still be available via our website, while our new blog covers news, stories, events and services from the Research Commons.


Scholars’ Studio TRANSGRESS was full of fascinating, well-designed presentations! The audience learned about minimum wage, queering the history of slavery, online teaching, haunting in El Trovador, undergraduate research, Chinese women using drama to break boundaries, Native American interpreters at museums and spatial negotiations! Check out photos of the event and our eight presenters.



The Research Commons posts recordings of past information webinars. Did you miss Monday’s Citation Tools Webinar? Listen to it here!

“In a good bookroom you feel in some mysterious way that you are absorbing the wisdom

contained in all the books through your skin, without even opening them.”
