Library study carrels

To those students and faculty members who use the Library study carrels.
To enable the library movers to start dismantling the study carrels for the remodel, ALL study carrels must be CLEARED of personal items and books turned in by April 30.  The contractors will start dismantling them for movement to the temporary space on May 1. 

In the Library Temp Space:

There will be carrels!  Due to space constraints they will not be assigned, and there can be no homesteading.  You have a quiet place to work or study during the day, but you’ll have to take your stuff to your locker or home every night.
REMEMBER -- You can always take home the books you have on your study carrel – just please check them out first if you have not done so!  You can renew books yourself and see what you have checked out through the online catalog, by signing onto your account with your library card number.

Library services, to include Circulation, Reference, Interlibrary Loan, Copyrights, Archives and Document Research and Acquisitions will be available in the temporary library location.  Phone numbers will be transferred, so contact information should still be valid.

The Future of Professional Military Education

Check out this interesting article. On April 18, 2012, the Foreign Policy Research Institute
(FPRI) will present a workshop of leading authorities to discuss the current state of professional military education (PME) in the United States. The education of military officers is an important element of national security decision making and civil-military relations, but much debate surrounds how to educate strategic leaders.

This workshop will use Joan Johnson-Freese's Winter 2012 Orbis
article "The Reform of Military Education: Twenty-Five Years
Later" to discuss and debate the current state of PME.
