A routine Library staff meeting this morning was interrupted by messengers from the Awards for Excellence Committee announcing that Assistant to the Dean Stephanie Lowell is Regent University’s March Employee of the Month.
Here are a few of the comments that Stephanie’s colleagues at the Library sent in for her nomination:
- Stephanie is one of those people you can absolutely count on for any number of things. She is organized and on top of just about everything that is happening in the Library. She also has an incredibly creative eye. She can develop materials and resources that look very professional and engaging at a moment’s notice. She is an incredible asset to the Library and helps everyone do their job better.
- Stephanie has, on many occasions, done significant background research about materials and resources we were considering for the Library. She has a history of finding cost-effective ways to continue to provide creative services to our patrons.
- Stephanie is active in her church and has stepped in to help with the Library staff chapels. She records the prayer requests and makes them available on the staff bulletin board.
The librarians and staff all join in congratulating Stephanie and thanking her for everything she does to make the Library a great place to work, research, or just relax.

Following months of heated anticipation, the Library is proud to announce the installation of its new microfilm reader and scanner.
ST ViewScan III is one of the most advanced microfilm scanners available today and brings the Library’s considerable microforms collections (microfilm, microfiche, and ultrafiche) into the digital era. The machine allows users to crop and save only the sections of a document they want as well as clean up any scratches that may be present on the film. Users have the option to print, email, or save their work to a flash drive.
While the machine will likely get its heaviest use from our InterLibrary Loan department in fulfilling requests for articles on microfilm, all Library researchers are welcome to use it. ViewScan is loaded with several video tutorials to get you started, and the Library staff and student assistants can also assist you.
So if you’ve always wanted to wade into the exciting world of microforms research, your time has come!
