Russell Library: "Affecting the Lives of Millions: The Immigration and Nationality Services Act of 1965". The Immigration and Nationality Services of Act of 1965 was a turning point in United States policy regarding immigration. While changing previous legislation that functioned on a rigid quota system, the Act of 1965 gave preference to refugees and families, removed quotas from countries in the Western Hemisphere, and based some entry to the United States on levels of skill. In the forty years since, the foreign-born population of the United States has tripled in number, now prompting new legislative debate.

Science Library: "Centennial of the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources 1906-2006" The oldest existing southern forestry school was established in 1906 through an endowment by George Foster Peabody. The School was originally called the George Foster Peabody School of Forestry. Over the years, the University of Georgia 's School of Forest Resources has become more sophisticated and respected. The school was renamed The School of Forest Resources and designated as a professional unit in 1971, when the curriculum was redesigned.

In 1991, the School of Forest Resources was dedicated in honor of the late Daniel B. Warnell. Mr. Warnell was a native Georgian who was involved in the management of banking, farming, and timber enterprises. He served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 1931 to 1937 and in the Georgia Senate from 1937 to 1939. As a state legislator, Mr. Warnell made significant contributions in rural development, public education, public transportation, and conservation of natural resources.

To celebrate the centennial, the Georgia Forestry Association and Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources have published a coffee table book The Centennial History of Forestry in Georgia : A pictorial journey. Story boards depicting the history of forestry in the State of Georgia have been displayed at the State Capitol and in the School. A selection of the storyboards are at the Science Library.

Circle Gallery: Archives in Action: The work of Charlie Aguar inspiring the School of Environmental Design's future planning focus. Archives in Action is an exhibit to be held at the SED gallery Oct. 6 31st, 2006. This exhibit will include the archives of the late Charles E. Aguar, an influential planner and dedicated researcher whose archives are held at SED/UGA. As the College of Environmental Design 's new focus will be in planning, it will be beneficial to look back at Charlie's work as we prepare for the task of educating our future planners. For more information, contact René Shoemaker at 706.542.8292, owensg14@uga.edu, or see www.sed.uga.edu/gallery.
