CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa's Rod Library is in a league of its own, according to the Midwest Archives Conference (MAC). In a recent newsletter, MAC featured top archival Web sites from colleges and universities around the Midwest. Rod Library's archive site was listed as 'stealing the show' when it comes to great examples of content.
'UNI places itself in a category of its own and shows us just how much the Web can do to educate interested people about its campus, its people, its culture and its history,' said article author Joshua Ranger.
The archive page was created by Gerald Peterson, special collections librarian and university archivist at Rod Library, with the help of library assistants Susan Basye and Gail Briddle. It can be found at www.library.uni.edu/speccoll.
