indicating community and campus involvement.

will be accepted. Nominations must be received by Ginger Johnson in the
Financial Aid Office, 139 Darland Administration Building by April 21,
INSTANT LIBRARY HELP
The UMD Library has launched a new service to offer online assistance
in real time to UMD students, faculty and staff. With the launch of the
new Ask Us! instant messaging (IM) service, people are now
able to quickly communicate with a librarian without leaving the comfort
of their computers at home, in their offices or even in the Library.
IM Chat and Chat/Co-Browse services are available to all UMD faculty,
staff and students. Chat/Co-Browse is available Monday through Friday
from 1 to 4 p.m. IM is available whenever the Reference Desk is open (65
hours per week.) Users seeking help at other times may use the e-mail
form on the Ask Us! page. To learn more, and to learn how
to connect, go to http://www.duluth.umn.edu/lib/askus/.
