2.‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌Fellowships Information Sessions 

The Frederik Meijer Office of Fellowships is hosting Thursday afternoon Virtual Information Sessions through the summer. The sessions will give students an opportunity to learn about fellowships opportunities available and how the fellowships office will support them if they choose to pursue an opportunity. The list of virtual sessions and more information can be found at Summer Information Sessions.   ‌ ‌ ‌ 

 

3. University Libraries: FOLIO Update 

University Libraries will undergo a major system migration that will cause some library systems to be offline June 28 - July 1. During this time, there will be no search for or request for physical materials like books, DVDs, and CDs. All of the Libraries' e-journals as well as most e-books and streaming videos will be available. This change will replace an aging system, address algorithmic bias in resource discovery, and generate cost savings by moving to open-source software. For more information on the system migration and project updates visit www.gvsu.edu/library/softwareupdates

  

Faculty teaching over June may want to let their students know about the difference in services for searching and requesting for print materials.  All of our e-journals and many of our e-books and streaming video should remain available during the update.

4.‌  ‌Dibs room usage policy 

As announced at the Unit Heads meeting on April 21, classrooms with dibs assigned to specific departments will be subject to minimum weekly usage requirements during scheduling this coming fall.  The policy is described in the scheduling section of the Unit Head page
