Personal Safety Workshop

The Library Staff Association is sponsoring a safety workshop for women. This workshop is planned for Tuesday June 13 at 1:00 p.m. and should last approximately 1.5 hours.  The workshop will take place in the Russell Library auditorium of the Main Library. The program is described as follows:

The Personal Safety Program is based on a four pronged theory of Alertness, Prevention, Precaution, and Preparation. Students are educated on sexual assault using this four pronged theory, and they learn how to determine risk factors in their lives. The students also learn how to control and lessen their chances of becoming a victim.

  • practical advice on partnering, obtaining funding, and designing a project.

The videoconference is part of an initiative by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

Exhibits

Main Library: The Libraries Staff Association drive is highlighted in the Main lobby. Can you match the pets to their human companion/library employee? Have you ever seen a tiny kitten hold a bottle?

Russell Library: "Power to the People," a look at the Rural Electrification Act and its effects on Georgia and its people. Remember, group tours can be arranged ... Spread the word!

Also in Russell:

"Don't Be Fuelish: A Discussion on the 1973 United States Oil Embargo” Continuing conflicts in the Middle East and recent damage to oil rigs and oil refineries in the Gulf region sustained during hurricanes Katrina and Rita have caused fuel prices in the U.S. to rise steeply in the last year and have also caused sporadic shortages. These events have triggered a renewed concern among many Americans about current and future access to energy resources. The disruption has also reminded Americans of the energy crisis in the 1970s and early 1980s. Although the impact of today's energy problems appears similar to the impact associated with the earlier crisis, many of the root causes of the current American energy shortage are different from those that caused the energy crisis of the 1970s and 1980s. This exhibit provides a closer look at the policies and politics of the energy crisis of the 1970s and 1980s.

Science Library: The current display features posters depicting the research of CURO (Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities) scholars, in the Sciences. A total of eight posters will rotated through the display over the next two monthes, with accompanying library resources as applicable.
