Last week, while Cooper was still closed because of the inclement weather, we moved some stuff around. Did you notice?
We are getting the 5th floor ready for the upcoming Adobe Digital Studio construction. We had to move all the furniture out of the area and into different locations in the building. We moved most of the furniture down to the the 3rd floor.
So, if your favorite chair or table is gone, maybe we just gave it a new home. Go take a look!
I mean, My Library Account…well, not mine, exactly. Oh, you’ll see what I mean.
Because of the winter weather, the library has been open and closed unusual hours. Sometimes you need to see when the items you have checked out are due and renew them before you have to pay a fine. You can do that from anywhere by using your library account.
You can see a list of everything you have checked out anytime you want by clicking on “My Library Account” from the front of the library’s webpage. Log in by using your Clemson userID and password and get a list of all your stuff, when it’s due, and even the things you have holds on. You can also see how much money you owe the library, and even pay fines (with Tiger 1 card or credit cards). While you’re there, try renewing your stuff online.
In advance of what is supposed to be snowy, winter-y weather for us; Cooper Library will close our services tonight (Wednesday, February 25) at 6pm. What that means is there will be no reference or circulation services but the building will remain open*. So basically, you can study but you can’t check out books.
*The building will remain open UNLESS the university decides to close earlier, for instance if night classes are cancelled then the building will close.
You are invited to an Intellectual Property seminar; How Do You Protect Your Invention, sponsored by Clemson University Libraries.
On Tuesday, February 24 at 10:10am in Room 118 of the Academic Success Center, Janet Baxter of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) will give a presentation centering on the basics of intellectual property, and the differences between copyrights, patents, trademarks and trade secrets. She will illustrate with real life examples, and focus on how each type of protection fits within the day-to-day life of an engineer or scientist.
The program is free, but pre-registration is requested. We will repeat the program at 11:15am.
In conjunction with these presentations, a Creative Inquiry team from Bioengineering is hosting a workshop on creativity; Being Innovative: The Forgotten Career Option. It will be held in Room M101 of Martin Hall from 5:30pm-8:00pm.
