Turner Free Library Now Offers a Look Into the Towns History for Patrons Through BiblioBoard

Charleston, SC (PRWEB) October 03, 2014

Turner Free Library (TFL) now offers free access to BiblioBoard to all patrons. BiblioBoard is an easy-to-use platform that allows TFL to offer the librarys localized content to patrons digitally, via an intuitive interface similar to the experience many people have on a daily basis using other consumer products. To start, the library has created digital exhibits showcasing a local high schools yearbooks and 170 years of town reports.

Mitchell Davis, founder and Chief Business Officer of BiblioLabs, believes this is a great opportunity for TFL to enhance patrons reading and learning experience. Through BiblioBoard, the Turner Free Library gives their patrons a chance to learn and celebrate their towns history and relate that knowledge to their own experiences within the town.

The current collection features Randolph High Schools yearbook, The Oracle, in its entirety from various years between 1916 and today. Patrons can enjoy exploring the antique books in a digital format and possibly find themselves or loved ones in the pages. Highlights from The Oracle include everything from class superlatives in 1937 ranging from Most Romantic to Chummiest and advertisements for beloved local businesses such as one for 25-cent mens haircuts at Peters Barber Shop.

Additional historical collections include Randolphs town reports that date back to the 1850s. Some of the older reports include content the modern reader may be surprised to find, such as an update from the towns official milk inspector and the specific number of chickens in Randolph in 1907. Patrons can see how the towns priorities and daily life has evolved throughout the century. Reports from the most recent years can be found in the librarys Reference Room.

We look forward to continuing to work with BiblioBoard through the Massachusetts Statewide eBook Project. The platform is user friendly and has made it possible for us to take steps to preserve Randolph’s history digitally. Come to the library and access these historical online documents, says library director Meaghan Thompson.

TFL also curated a collection of open source classic childrens books on BiblioBoard. The collection includes beloved stories such as The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland. The books maintain their vintage charm with the original drawings and pictures still included in the digital version.

Users can access BiblioBoard through the librarys website ( or synch with the device of their choice, including the iPad

SIUE Chancellor Furst-Bowe Touts Successes, Points to Future

Edwardsville, Ill. (PRWEB) September 26, 2014

Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Chancellor Julie Furst-Bowe gave her annual State of the University address this morning to the campus community. She reflected upon many accomplishments during the past year, expressed optimism over the state of the institution and also acknowledged the challenges that are ahead.

From the Morris University Center Meridian Ballroom, Furst-Bowe greeted a crowd of nearly 500. See the video.

Furst-Bowe recounted the Universitys most recent recognitions. This month, U.S.News & World Report ranked SIUE among the best Regional Universities Midwest for the 11th consecutive year, remaining in the top 50 in the overall rankings and standing 11th overall among public universities in that category.

The latest U.S. News rankings came just after recognition by Washington Monthly in August that SIUE has climbed into the Top 40 for masters universities in the nation. SIUE is first among all masters institutions in Illinois on the national magazines list.

She acknowledged the record freshman class of 2,126 students. Those first-year students contributed to a record full-time undergraduate student body of 10,979 students or 220 (two percent) more full-time students than one year ago. Overall enrollment grew to 13,972 or one percent (122 students) more than last fall.

Among the other high points, Furst-Bowe reported that SIUE received 185 external awards totaling $ 34.9 million in FY14 and 84 research awards totaling more than $ 5 million.

The chancellor also focused on the Higher Learning Commissions accreditation visit in March. The Quality Check-Up Report indicated thart SIUE provided strong, clear and well-presented evidence for the Criteria for Accreditation and Core Components.

Furst-Bowe pointed proudly toward SIUEs increasingly diverse campus as approximately one-quarter of the student body is now comprised of minority and international students. A significant element is a record international enrollment that has reached 420 students, the first time in 10 years that international enrollment surpassed 400.

Sustainability continues to be a focus as SIUE received a bronze rating from STARS (Sustainability Tracking Assessment and Ratings System) for its accomplishments in campus sustainability.

Among the challenges noted by Furst-Bowe, first is the continuing decline of state support as appropriations have declined nearly $ 10 million in the past five years. She praised faculty and staff for their commitment to effectiveness and efficiency while managing tightened budgets.

Despite the budget challenges, Furst-Bowe pointed to new initiatives funded for FY15 including:
