Food in the Libraries

As a result of conversations with members of the campus community and the feedback from our food survey, the University Libraries are implementing a change to the Libraries' food policy. These changes will go into effect on September 9, 2018. Signage announcing the new policy will begin to appear on August 1st and Libraries employees will use the weeks leading up to September 9th to educate visitors about the upcoming changes. View the full food policy.

As of September 9, the following changes will be implemented:

Migration to KiltHub

As of July 1, 2018, the Libraries’ former repository service Research Showcase will cease to exist and all of its content will have been migrated to KiltHub. KiltHub is the new comprehensive institutional repository and data repository for research data and scholarly outputs produced by members of Carnegie Mellon University and their collaborators.

Remarkable Women of the Mellon Institute

On the Scotty Tales blog, Project Archivist Emily Davis highlights some of the exceptional women she's learned about through her work at the Mellon Institute.

"While organizing and preserving the Mellon Institute of Industrial Research papers, I have kept my eyes peeled for women who contributed to the many scientific discoveries made at the Mellon Institute. Nearly 7 months into this project, two women have captivated my attention thus far: Lois B. Whittle and Dr. Alice G. Renfrew.
