On-Campus & Online Library Help April 29-May 2

The last week of the spring semester is upon us, and the Librarians want to help you finish successfully. From Monday (April 29) through Thursday (May 2), the Library has scheduled multiple times when research librarians will be on hand to help you find the best books, articles, and media for your final papers and projects.

We are calling our on-campus sessions Study Haven and our online sessions Study Hangouts. Join us and get answers for your thorniest research and citation questions.

Visualize data with Statista

The Library now has a subscription to Statista, one of the world’s most successful providers of statistics and quantitative data. What makes Statista unique is that all of its statistics and data are visualized in intuitive charts and graphs that can be exported into reports. The platform contains over 1,000,000 statistics on more than 80,000 topics. It also provides market forecasts, company and industry reports, and consumer market outlooks.

Statista is a multi-disciplinary resource where all Regent users doing quantitative research for their projects are likely to find relevant data. But be forewarned: the platform can be quite addictive, and if you’re not careful, you may find yourself browsing Statista after you’ve found the information you were seeking in the first place!

Help improve the Library by taking our survey!

Explore Creativity with First Fridays

This semester, on the first Friday of each month, the Library will host an informal series that will celebrate creativity and innovation. This will be an exciting way for students and faculty to meet innovators who are making a positive impact in our world.

The series will kick off this Friday with The Shoe That Grows™ founder and Regent alumnus Kenton Lee. Doris Gomez, Dean of the School of Business and Leadership, will introduce Kenton as he joins us online to tell how a walk with some kids in Kenya led to a simple but ingenious idea. The Shoe That Grows™ is a Patent for Humanity Award Winner this year.

The event will be held at the Library globe on the first floor on September 7 at 12:30.

Watch the World Cup at the Library

Watch the entire game or just a few minutes at the Library.

The quadrennial FIFA World Cup is a global event like no other. Over a billion people around the world watched the 2014 final match in Rio de Janeiro, but perhaps even this pales when compared to the artificial earthquake set off last Sunday by jubilant fans in Mexico City following their team’s stunning 1-0 upset over defending champion Germany.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicked off last Thursday and will continue through the July 15 final in Moscow. Sadly, the United State did not qualify this year, but you have a choice of 32 other teams to cheer for.

The official 2018 World Cup ball has a pixelated pattern in homage to the classic Telstar design of 1970.

The Library invites soccer fans (as well as the merely curious) to watch the World Cup at the Library. We will be showing all matches televised on Fox when the Library is open for the duration of the tournament. Remember, the Library is closed on Sundays during the summer, so you’ll have to find another location for those matches, which includes the final!
