What’s New in MINDS@UW-River Falls
The MINDS@UW-River Falls project added its 200th individual item to the repository in 2010. The item, entitled Impact Assessment of the UW-Extension Conflict Team Workshops A, B, C, & D Focus Group Report, was part of the UWRF Survey Research Center’s Other Reports Collection.
Also in 2010, the 20th individual UWRF collection was added to the project with the development of the UWRF Heath and Human Performance Senior Seminar Research Projects. Developed in partnership with the Health and Human Performance Department, this collection of submissions represents research projects conducted by groups of HHP seniors during their PED 461- Senior Seminar course. Research topics were developed by the students and represent an array of inquiries in physical education, sport and exercise science, and health.
In the winter of 2010, the library began work on the GoldinBrown collection, which contains a sampling of work by Wanda Brown and Phyllis Goldin in several art forms: pen and ink drawings, music composition and songs, poetry, creative writing and essays. Included in this collection is a recording of the new UW-River Falls school spirit song – Our Chance to Fly.
The TESOL Masters Theses and Plan B Papers collection was created in April 2011. This collection consists of graduate students’ theses and Plan B papers required for completion of the Masters of Arts in TESOL degree at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.
Other new content includes: 1960 and 1961 Meletean; additional Geology newsletter articles from Dr. William Cordua—a collection that now contains 89 articles; additional reports and surveys from the Survey Research Center and the addition of more Plan B papers.
MINDS@UW-River Falls is currently working with the graduate office to create a mandatory submission process for Plan B papers and Graduate Theses. As of today, MINDS at UW-River Falls have a grand total of 292 items.
