Communication disorders program reaccredited
The department of communication disorders at UW-Eau Claire recently was notified that its master’s program in speech-language pathology had been reaccredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Reaccreditation was awarded for the maximum of eight years with no contingencies.
     According to Larry Solberg, associate professor and chair of the department, the reaccreditation report noted that UW-Eau Claire’s department of communication disorders has “dedicated, hard working faculty with strong working relationships within the department and with other departments on campus” and “strong students, both academically and clinically.”
     The CAA accredits graduate education programs that provide entry-level professional preparation in speech-language pathology and/or audiology. Programs must be in compliance with standards dealing with administrative structure, quality and number of faculty and instructional staff, student quality and services available to students, curriculum, and program resources.

McIntyre Library welcomes public interested in research
Since the September 11th attacks, UW-Eau Claire's McIntyre Library has been responding to requests for more information on subjects such as terrorism, Islam and the Taliban.
     Immediately after the attacks there was an increase in the number of students and faculty requesting information, said Jill Markgraf, distance education and reference librarian. Since then university librarians have been ordering more books and audiovisuals on topics pertaining to terrorism, Islam and Middle East issues.
     Markgraf and Leslie Foster, government publications librarian, agree that while their primary purpose is to support the curriculum and respond to campus information needs, the UW-Eau Claire library also is a community resource.
    "Librarians are happy to provide information, research assistance and/or library instruction to anyone who comes to the Reference desk," Foster said.
     Wisconsin residents 18 and older who wish to check out library materials may purchase an off-campus library user card at the circulation desk for $10. High school honor students qualify for a renewable, no-fee current semester user card.
     "Libraries have a long and admirable tradition of cooperation, and I think many people would be surprised at the level of collaboration and communication that goes on between their university and public libraries," Markgraf said. "We are happy to help community members in any way we can."
     The library has online tools to help narrow down library searches. In addition to the university's online catalog, the following sites are available to the public, but some contain links to databases that you must be a subscriber to use. Community members may access databases that UW-Eau Claire subscribes to by signing onto a McIntyre Library computer as a UW-Eau Claire guest user.

  • Build-a-Guide is a collection of online guides offering research advice on a variety of topics. It also offers suggestions for finding out how to begin researching topics.
  • The Online Reference Shelf finds background, factual, statistical and biographical information. Online encyclopedias provide brief explanations and topic overviews.
  • Core & More is a similar resource that organizes resources by broad disciplines rather than specific topics.
  • Documents in the News is an example of a government Web site available to the public. It includes recent reports and research issued by government agencies.

     If McIntyre Library does not have materials people seek, access still is possible. For UW-Eau Claire students, faculty and staff, the library provides an interlibrary loan service through which books, periodicals and other materials may be obtained from other libraries. Most public libraries offer a similar service for community members.
