Two Grinnell students recently won awards for research presentations at the Iowa Physiological Society (IPS) annual meeting in Des Moines. IPS provides networking opportunities for physiologists in applied research and teaching.

The Libraries wish to thank the faculty for their hard work and time during the Serials Review that took place last academic year. Over a period of several months, faculty collectively reviewed every Library journal and database subscription and recommended a large number of changes.
