Iowa Women’s Archives staff participated in a Mock Caucus event with other staff from the UI Libraries on Wednesday, January 20, 2016. A mock caucus is a non-partisan educational event to teach about the caucus process and what to expect. Vitalina Nova, Preservation Projects Librarian, led an educational and bilingual guide to caucus.
The event was held at the Center for Worker Justice in Iowa City and was co-sponsored by LULAC and the Center.
Update from Acquisitions & Collections Management Librarian Margaret Gamm
These books arrived this week as part of a donation from Nicholas Meyer. His gift, which will be added to his previous gifts to Special Collections, included translations of his works in several languages, as well as Star Trek books and movies and some other fascinating items. The books are about to head over to our cataloging department, where the real language skills live. Kudos to our multi-talented catalogers, and to our generous donor!
