It is common knowledge that university libraries provide resources to support student learning and faculty research, but did you know that our library includes resources for university staff members, too? As a UI&U staff person, you have access to many online periodicals and magazines that can help you to develop professionally while an employee here. These so-called “trade journals” include articles that professionals in a wide variety of fields can read to stay current with best practices directly related to their work expertise. Here are just a few examples of these, all accessible 24 hours a day, every day, via our library website:
Whether you are a staff member interested in reading more about the latest news and trends in your chosen field of work or a staff supervisor seeking to find convenient and budget-friendly ways to encourage those who work in your department to engage in professional development, our librarians are ready to help you find key professional journals (and e-books, too!) that can keep you at the forefront of your job knowledge. We can also help you to set up an RSS feed that will enable you to have selected articles of interest sent right to your email or mobile device automatically each time they are published.
Interested? Please contact a member of our library reference team at email@example.com or by phone at extension 8747 (from off campus, 800-861-6400, ext. 8747) so we can help you get started.
