New ULM Warhawk Statue

The new ULM Warhawk statue has been installed, and we have pictures of the event!
Click here to see them on Flickr

These are not ULM official press photos... these are from The ULM Library.

By the way, Flickr is also where the picture in our top banner comes from, if you ever wondered what the whole thing looked like:

Database login change

If you've ever logged in to use the Library databases from off-campus, you may recall that you had to use your Social Security Number as your login name, unlike many other ULM applications where you use your CWID. As of yesterday, May 13, 2008, that has changed: your username for the Library databases is now your CWID. This includes article databases like EBSCOHost, LexisNexis, and J STOR, as well as the Library catalog (iLink, where a username is required for things like placing holds and seeing what you have checked out).

Your PIN has not changed; it's still your 2-digit birth month and 2-digit birth year (for example, March 1988 = 0388). If you have any problems logging in, give us a call on the Reference desk at 342-1071.

Free Stuff! For You! From the Federal Government

There is a new distribution area for give-away Government Publications on the second floor of the University Library , North side, near the windows. There are a variety of freebies (pamphlets, consumer information sheets, guides to finding medical information, handbooks, bookmarks, and other items) in or around display racks on tables (near the Office of Assessment and Evaluation).

Please help yourself--but, please, don't take more than one of any single publication--other taxpayers may also be interested!

May Flowers ... and Crops, Weeds, and Pests

May in Louisiana means flowers... and growing crops ... and weeds and pests a'plenty. Helpful pamphlets and books for the growing season, like "Growing Strawberries in Louisiana" and "Poisonous Plants of the Southern United States" are on display on the 2nd floor of the University Library. All the items on display may be checked out -- really, we have plenty more with which to replenish the display.
