Be Prepared: We're Entering A Post-Device Era

Monday, June 27, 2016

One of the most famous tech-related commentaries expressed in the past 10 years is Steve Jobs’s declaration of the "post-PC era."

Cultivating an Idea: The Green Wall at the John and Bonnie Buhler Library

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

A project management assignment planted a seed that bloomed at the Roblin Centre's John and Bonnie Buhler Library. Library Technician Rosemary Woodby with the support of a Program Innovation Fund (PIF) was able to procure two six foot tall, self-watering planters.

The Reading Room's trademark sunlight takes care of the rest. >> Read More
