Library staff receives grant, presents lecture

March 26, 2010

Trish Nugent, librarian and archivist for the J. Edgar and Louise S. Monroe Library, was recently awarded an American Heritage Preservation grant in the amount of $2,753 from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The grant will be used to purchase equipment and software to monitor temperature and humidity levels in Special Collections and Archives in order to preserve archival materials. American Heritage Preservation Program grants are used by small museums, libraries and archives to help to preserve specific items, including works of art, artifacts and historical documents that are in need of conservation.

In other library news, Brad Petitfils, instructional technologist, gave an invited lecture on March 19 at the Society of Louisiana CPAs Educator Workshop entitled “I’ll Never Teach Online! Or Will I?: Faculty Development, the Internet Curriculum, and Online Education.”
