RUL-NB Stories: Our Stories

General INFO

Please note information about the RUL-NB newsletter, Our Stories, Our Culture, and Our Communities has moved.  You will now be able to access all previous newsletters and new links to submitting information on the STAFF PAGE dedicated to this resource. Please note you will need your netid and password to access this page.

We will now be using the LibInsight assessment tool to submit stories and images which will be new to some, and please contact me with any issues.  I am still working on adding everyone to LibInsight so again if you have any issues, please contact me.

I will note unfortunately at this time we are unable to upload images in LibInsight, however I have created a Qualtrics database for uploading images until this feature is available and you will find the link on the STAFF PAGE and at the following LINK.

Many thanks to everyone for making the newsletter what it is and again please send me comments, questions, or concerns at any time to Megan Lotts at megan.lotts@rutgers.edu
