John Wesley Powell Undergraduate Research Conference

The John Wesley Powell Undergraduate Research Conference is a great way to share the work you’ve been doing with your peers, faculty members and the campus community.  If you’re thinking about participating, the deadline for registration and submission of abstracts for the 2013 conference is Friday, March 22 at 4:30 pm.  The registration form and more details can be found at the conference web site.  Past presentations, posters, music performances and gallery walks can be viewed in the conference archive on DigitalCommons @ IWU.  This year’s conference will take place on Saturday, April 20 – hope to see you there!


Spring Break!

Spring Break is days away…while the library has abbreviated hours (see below), please remember you can access our databases, catalogs, RefWorks and Interlibrary Loan services anytime online.  Help@Ames will be open during library hours to answer any questions you may have.

If you’re planning on doing any pleasure reading over the break, we have Kindles for checkout with bestsellers pre-loaded, and we also have print copies of leisure reading on the first floor, next to the Circulation Desk.

Library Hours for Spring Break:

  • Friday, March 8 – Ames closes at 4:30 pm
  • Saturday, March 9 – Monday, March 11 – Closed
  • Tuesday, March 12 – Friday, March 15 – 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
