Dog Tails for Paws to De-Stress Fall 2019
The faculty and staff of MSU Librarycompiled pictures of their canine companions to help spread smiles to student faces, and help them to De-Stress!
Well the ever curious bobcat Rufus found out... and you know what he did?
He recommended we put our feline friends in here too! And since we are a library and you just know we love our Cats (Go Cats Go!) we simply couldn't resist!!
We also highlighted our wonderful partners: Intermountain Therapy Animals! It is their 20th anniversary of their R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dogs) program to improve the literacy skills of children through the assistance of registered therapy teams as literacy mentors.
At our Paws to De-Stress event, the wonderful volunteers and their dogs come to the Library the last two weeks of the semester to help students take a moment to breathe and relax during a very stressful time of the semester.
Veterans Day 2019 Fall 2019

Crossroads of Discovery at YOUR Library Fall 2019

For our display we made a crossroads of discovery of YOUR Library! The roads lead to areas such as Special Collections, Acoustic Atlas, eResources, Librarians, and more!
Banned Books Week - Censorship leaves us in the dark. Keep the light on! Fall 2019
This year we celebrated Banned Books Week with a trivia night at Spectators bar and grill. We had multiple rounds of questions for people to answer, and it was a fantastic evening! In our display we amplified the ALA Banned Books Week theme "Censorship leaves us in the dark. Keep the light on!". We shed light on somebooks and titles that have been banned.

IAs a part of the Year Of Undergraduate Research (YOUR), and in celebration of the 100th birthday of Dr. Maurice Hilleman, the library crafted this display about the MSU Alumni. A man that grew from a humble beginning in the small town of Miles City, Montana made his way to changing the world with hard work and research.
50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing Summer 2019
In celebration of the 50th Apollo Moon Landing, the library displayed videos of the era, encapsulating the moment from 50 years ago into a quiet moment of reflection of a different time.
Tribal College Library Institue (TCLI) & Native American Studies at MSU Summer 2019
TCLI was founded in 1989, when library faculty at Montana State University Library, responded to a request for a special workshop to address the professional needs of librarians at Montana’s seven tribal colleges. In 1992, as tribal college librarians in the region received word of this successful annual workshop, participation was increased to include North Dakota and South Dakota, and in 1993 to include the state of Washington. In 1994, TCLI received a grant from the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC) to expand the program yet again to include librarians from all AIHEC affiliated libraries.
Adding to the excitement of TCLI, this year there has been the celebration of the newest Hall on campus, for the Native American Studies. In the case images from the ground blessing, and the proposed building were included. Information about the classes that are offered for the current Native American Studies were listed to show just how many options are offered.
