Paws to De-Stress angled image - 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.

Tribal College Library Institue (TCLI) & Native American Studies at MSU                                    Summer 2019

 TCLI full display case

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.
