Rice Library Welcomes New and Returning Users!

The library is excited to see all the new faces and old friends with the start of Fall semester.

There have been a couple of personnel changes here….our Reference and Interlibrary Loan Librarian Margie Ruppel departed in July for a new position in Boise, Idaho. We miss her, wish her well, and await someone new to fill the vacant spot. Fear not, ILL service continues without missing a beat!

Please welcome our new Instructional Services Librarian, Johanna MacKay. She has her BA in English and American Literature from New York University, and her MLIS from SUNY-Buffalo. Johanna has already accomplished many good things for us since beginning work July 20.


Another BIG change for Fall are the new editions of the MLA and APA style guides. We have both in Reference, and have prepared single-page tip sheets for each: http://www.usi.edu/library/citeyoursources07.asp

The Reference Team encourages faculty and students to visit us in the library, give us a call at 812-464-1907, [800-246-6173] or seek help through our email reference service at libref@usi.edu. Have a terrific start to the semester and drop by soon!
