Language of Materials



The Rodney Briggs Library record group reflects the library's central role within the campus' intellectual and cultural life. A few folders ("Library, 1979-80," "Library, 1980-81," etc.) contain correspondence and chronicle library growth and developments in technology. Other files, having to do with the "Briggs Library Associates," (including a large binder compiled by Joanne Hagstrom and given to UMM Archives May, 2008 that details meetings and grant-writing activities) reflect the library's effort at community building and its role within the larger campus community. This role is also apparent in the large collection of programs, brochures, and flyers that reflect on UMM's diverse cultural life. Other materials include newspaper clippings pertaining to the library, a small group of administrative files and materials having to do with campus governance.

Keywords: Informational Literacy, Rodney Briggs, Scholarly Accomplishments.

Correspondents: Russel DuBois, Karen Fischer, LeAnn Dean.
