Nine students were selected for the Spring semester awards and received a $500 award for their excellent job performance in the University Libraries.  Library Student Assistant Awards are funded by contributions to the Campus Scholarship Innovation Campaign from the University Libraries’ staff and other donors, with a matching contribution from the Friends of the Libraries.  To date, 409 awards have been distributed totaling over $190,650.

The University Libraries biannual Library Student Assistant Award (LSAA) reception that was scheduled for March 13, 2020, was cancelled due to COVID-19 precautionary measures.

2020 Census Information Available

The 2020 Census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. The results of the 2020 Census will help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding flow into communities every year for the next decade. That funding shapes many different aspects of every community, no matter the size, no matter the location.

The results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the US House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.

It’s also in the Constitution: Article 1, Section 2, which mandates that the country conduct a count of its population once every 10 years. The 2020 Census will mark the 24th time that the country has counted its population since 1790.

The University Libraries are a Federal Depository Library and are available to answer questions about accessing the US Census. You can find information about who should complete the census, where to find it, available languages, and how census data are used on our 2020 Census Guide.
