BG@100 Open Forum to explain CSS term activation

Campus Solutions (CSS) Term Activation will be the topic at the Thursday (Jan. 15)  BG@100 Open Forum. The event will be held at 1:30 p.m. in 315 Bowen-Thompson Student Union.
The presentation will provide an overview of the processes for term activation, which in CSS is the process that makes a student eligible to enroll in classes at BGSU and provides for the sharing of information across the CSS modules.

Topics to be covered include: term activation terminology, the term activation process, and understanding processes affected by term activation in other CSS modules.
All faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend. In addition to the presentation, project team members will be available to answer questions regarding BG@100 and the Campus Solutions implementation.

Scholars and artists on Friends of the Libraries Web site

This year, the Friends of the University Libraries has decided to move annual recognitions of faculty and staff for their scholarly publications and artistic achievements to the Friends of the University Libraries Web site for permanent viewing throughout the year. In prior years, this recognition was celebrated at a reception in the library.

The site can be found at the Library Web site by clicking under “F” for The Friends on the A-Z Library Web site Index. Visit

The Friends Board Awards and Recognitions Committee with the assistance of the University schools and colleges annually selects the honorees. For recognition the criteria must be fulfilled and achievements fully documented. The criteria are listed on the Web.

University Libraries’ services reviewed in online report

Did you know the BGSU University Libraries’ Web site had more than 1.3 million hits during the past fiscal year? Or that the libraries’ holdings total over 2.3 million?

Those facts and a review of the libraries’ services from 2005-08 are available in an online report.  The three-year review is a culmination of the efforts from all of the areas within University Libraries, according to Dean Thomas C. Atwood, and includes administrative leadership periods of Atwood, co-interim deans Kelly Broughton and Catherine Cardwell, and Dr. Lorraine Haricombe.
