Prairie Plant Banners in Burling Library

Wed, 2012-09-05 08:14 | By Anonymous (not verified)

The Center for Prairie Studies and the Grinnell College Libraries have collaborated in the installation of two dramatic photographs of prairie plants that have been hung on the first floor of Burling Library, on the east and west brick walls (south side). Created by the Land Institute in Salina, Kansas, these photographs portray the plants with their astonishing root systems that help the prairie survive fire, cold, and severe droughts like the one this year. We want to thank Milton Severe of Faulconer Gallery and the Facilities Management staff for their help with this project.

Web Audit

While we were spending a lot of time on the back-end of our web management, our site grew, organically, freely, and not necessarily coherently. So we decided to take the next, long overdue step: to look what the actual user experience. Normally, people are scared of the audits and the consequences they might bring. We were different. We were begging for our audit. We wanted someone with hands on, real world experience to look at our site and the ways we use it.
