Media Equipment for Loan to Students
We know it can be challenging – if not impossible – for a student to purchase or access media equipment for an assignment or course. Thanks to a micro-grant from NAU’s Parent Leadership Council, we have more equipment students can borrow, including Nikon digital cameras, Canon video cameras, Zoom digital audio recorders, ADATA external hard drives and more. Visit the Main Desk to borrow or schedule equipment.
The Cline Library Learning Studio
The library's new Learning Studio is open and scheduled for fall classes. There are faculty and classes from across the curriculum including cinema, business, economics, geography, and engineering. The highly configurable space offers advanced technology in a seamless environment. Instructors can push content from a lectern computer or their own device to any or all of the displays in the room seamlessly through the room interface. They can easily share student work from one student group's display to the displays of other groups around the room. They can also connect students, guest speakers, and co-lecturers with two-way audio and video communication.

The Pine/Lumberjack Student Newspaper Is Now Digitized and Available Online! (from the Special Collections and Archives Blog)
The Pine/Lumberjack is the official publication of the Associated Students of Northern Arizona Normal School (original name of Northern Arizona University). The Pine was first published a few weeks after the beginning of fall semester 1914; in 1946, by a vote of the student body, the name of the student newspaper formally changed to The Lumberjack. Learn more about The Pine/Lumberjack project in this blog post in the Special Collections and Archives blog.
Researchers: Need to create a data management plan? Librarians can help!
NAU is a now partner institution in the DMPTool, an online resource that guides researchers through the process of creating a data management plan to meet funder requirements. Use your NAU username and password to log in to the DMPTool and get access to 20 different funding agency templates that provide links to funder information, suggested answers, and data management resources. Submit your data management plan for an informal review and get comments and suggestions from a reviewer at Cline Library. Our librarians are also happy to provide advice while you are writing your plan. For more information, contact Academic Programs Librarian Meg Eastwood.
Cline Library Receives Photographic Treasure
When Tom Hanks, a USGS Seismologist, discovered a collection of original historic photographs of the Colorado Plateau taken by his father in the 1920s, he acted quickly to preserve this treasure and called Karen Underhill at Northern Arizona University’s Cline Library Special Collections and Archives.
“Cline Library is a ‘high octane’ place,” Tom explains. “I knew this would make a safe and permanent home because the people at NAU know what they are doing.” Additionally, he appreciated the university’s proximity to the location where the photographs were taken, some of which were in the more remote areas of the Navajo Nation. Originally, Tom donated just the pristine negatives, but that was just the beginning. Learn more about Hanks' gift and the library's first Hanks Scholar.
Tyler Wade was the first Hanks Scholar.
