News & Announcements
The Mabee Library has been awarded a sizeable grant from a library organization of which we are a member 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 sit together and wirelessly share their PC or Mac laptop screen for group viewing. The technology has now been installed and tested, and is now available for use! The collaboration station is on the main floor of the library (we reserve the second floor for quiet study). The collaboration stations has already proven to be a valued work area for students, faculty, and staff. You are invited to check it out, and use it to study together and work on team assignments and research. Usage instructions are at the station. The collaboration station may be reserved for use at a particular time, too.
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.
