Jim Schnur’ presentation on the history of the USF System to the USF Board of Trustees.
The BOT are meeting on this campus for their first meeting of the year. Jim was asked to do this presentation by President Genshaft after she saw an earlier presentation he had done on USFSP at a USFSP Campus Board Meeting. The applause following Jim’s presentation gave witness to how enjoyable it was and how well received it was. Later in the meeting, President Genshaft started her remarks by thanking Jim again for the wonderful presentation. You will all be able to see the presentation later when Jim puts it into the digital archive.

New Displays in the Library
The five display cases on the first floor have new displays. The two in the central atrium have a variety of USFSP memorabilia going back to the 1980s. The two along the wall facing the entrance include basic information about the library and a little about our history. The display case alongside the elevator gives a little biographical information about Nelson Poynter since students and others occasionally wonder who the person is whose name is on a building.
Eight New CONNECTED chairs in the Library!
The Library just acquired eight new comfy chairs that have places for you to plug in and connect your devices (phones, iPads, etc.) while you sit in a quiet spot and read, study, or just catch up with the world through your phone or other device.
