The Z. Smith Reynolds Library is hosting a lecture and book signing for Margaret Supplee Smith, professor emerita of art, on Tuesday, Feb. 11 at 4 p.m. in the library’s auditorium (Room 404). Smith will discuss her book “American Ski Resort: Architecture, Style, Experience” (2013, University of Oklahoma Press).
Skiing is all about freedom. Yet, paradoxically, the experience of skiing for most Americans is inextricably linked to architecture, for our journey down the mountain begins at the ski resort. The evolution from wilderness outpost to the massive, theme-oriented, multipurpose enclave today will be explored. Following the lecture, copies of Smith’s book will be available for purchase.

For the past two years, the ZSR Library has offered two class packs of tablets, each consisting of five Apple iPads. These iPads have already been successfully used for a variety of projects, often outside of the classroom. The library just added a third class pack of 20 Kindle Fire HDs.
These Kindles use “whispercast” so instructors can manage multiple devices and distribute content.
Faculty can check out any of these packs for up to an entire semester. The new Kindle Fire HD pack has already been booked for spring 2014, but if you have a summer or fall class that could use these 20 Kindles or one of the iPad class packs, contact Barry Davis.

Over the semester break, from Dec. 16 through Jan. 10, new flooring will be installed in the ZSR library.
During the time the library is open, there will be construction noise and dust. In addition to new flooring, the number of electrical outlets in the atrium floor will be increased to 80.
The floor plan shows the areas of the main level that will be impacted by the project. All of the existing carpet and tile will be removed. The darker color shows the areas where resilient flooring will be installed. In the atrium, cork flooring will be installed.

The following message is from Provost Rogan Kersh and Senior Vice President Hof Milam:
We are pleased to announce that the university plans to implement a centralized, campus-wide license for Event Management System (EMS) for scheduling of non-classroom space on campus. This software will allow us to manage space far more effectively, provide a user-friendly process for reserving conference rooms and other space, and collect/utilize accurate usage data.
As a result of Strategic Resource Initiative (SRI) work this past year, we realized that more than 30 individual space managers across campus were utilizing various practices for scheduling space. After assessing our current processes and costs, EMS was identified as the best solution for efficiency and ease of use. In addition, by consolidating existing EMS licenses and maintenance fees currently held by several groups on campus, we are saving the university thousands of dollars.
A cross-campus implementation team will spend the next 6-8 months working with space managers across campus to implement the software. Our grateful thanks to this team, whose members are:
- Mike Ayuso, IS
- Sean Brittain, Facilities & Campus Services
- James Buckley, Campus Life
- Alisa Elmore, Admissions
- Kettie Fickter, Athletics
- Max Floyd, Campus Life
- Karen Frekko, School of Business
- Beth Hoagland, Provost’s Office
- Trevor Hughes, School of Law
- Mary Beth Lock, ZSR Library
- Sharon Melnik, Conference Services
- Harold Pace, University Registrar
- Randy Rogan, College
- John Wise, Hospitality and Auxiliary Services
We are looking forward to reaping the benefits of this approach to space management.
