Virginia Dressler, University Libraries, presented “Lending a Hand to Local Historical Societies: How Academic Libraries Can Reach Out to Local Historical Societies to Highlight Regional History” at the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions Annual Conference in Columbus, Ohio, on Aug. 15, 2016.
The Kent State University Board of Trustees today established a comprehensive, national search to recruit and select the university’s 13th president.
The events of May 4, 1970, placed Kent State University in an international spotlight after a student protest against the Vietnam War and the presence of the Ohio National Guard ended in tragedy with four students losing their lives and nine others being wounded. From a perspective of nearly 50 years, Kent State remembers the tragedy and leads a contemporary discussion and understanding of how the community, nation and world can benefit from understanding the profound impact of the event.
