News & Announcements
The Mabee Library has been awarded a sizeable grant from a library organization in Texas to develop and install a "collaboration station." This is a work area for small groups, with a custom table and chairs, and a large screen monitor - and, behind the scenes, a sophisticated screen sharing device - that will allow users to wirelessly share their PC or Mac laptop screen. The technology has arrived, and is being tested, and we expect the custom furniture to arrive soon. The collaboration station will be installed on the main floor of the library (we reserve the second floor for quiet study). We know this will be a valued work area for groups of students, faculty, and others, and we expect to see groups of students using the new collaboration station to study together and work on team assignments and research. We will accommodate reservations, too. More information is coming soon!
The Mabee Library has also developed a list of recent, significant faculty publications and presentations. Faculty research and scholarship are important, valued activities at MidAmerica Nazarene University. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE LIST.
The MNU Mabee Library, Olathe Public Library, Coffee Lunch Coffee, and Olathe Chamber of Commerce are partnering to present a workshop entitled "The Art of Great Communication" on Friday, November 7, 2014, from 8am-1pm, with breakfast and lunch provided. This event will be held at the Olathe Community. More information about the workshop speakers and agenda - as well as registration information - is available here.
