New members of the Reed faculty

     

NEW LIBRARY ALLIANCE WILL BENEFIT REED STUDENTS AND FACULTY

Two large Northwest library consortia of which Reed is a member, Orbis and Cascade, have merged to offer Summit, a powerful web resource listing more than 22 million books and other materials owned by university and college libraries in Oregon and Washington. Summit greatly simplifies students’ work by combining many library catalogs in a single search and by making it easy to request materials through the web. More than half of the 22 million items in Summit are unique, owned by only one of the member libraries. As an aid to quick delivery of borrowed items, the consortium administers a courier service providing daily pick-up and delivery of library materials. Orbis Cascade Alliance also supports a cooperative purchase program for databases, electronic journals, electronic books, and other digital library material. This program allows libraries to afford a much broader range of web-based information resources.

WHERE THE PROFS’ KIDS ARE

An article in the July 4 Chronicle of Higher Education asked “Where do professors’ children in the Northeast go to college when they want to get away from their home region?” According to a ten-year study by two economists at Vanderbilt University, faculty kids go to selective liberal arts institutions, and Reed was number eight on their list of top choices for these students.
