Morningstar Direct - coming soon!
Provides data, analysis and tools for managing mutual funds, equities, EFTs, and more. Students will have access to a tool used in the workplace, and Finance professors will help the rest of us who may want to know more about our own portfolios. For the summer Morningstar Direct will be available on two Bloomberg workstations that will be set up temporarily in McQuade Library 2nd floor until their move to the new Business School building. Web access for Morningstar will be rolled out later this summer.
The "Coding with Robots: From Kindergarten to Career" workshop held on Wednesday, 4/26, co-sponsored by McQuade Library, the Merrimack Institute for New Teacher Support (MINTS), and the Kappa Delta Pi Education Honors Society, was a huge success! Over 60 Merrimack students, alumni, colleagues, as well as local teachers and members of local school districts, met Root - a robot that brings coding to life for all ages! Presenters and Root developers Shay Pokress and Raphael Cherney discussed the importance of introducing computer science and coding into K-12 classrooms. Participants enjoyed a hands-on experience with Root and its connecting software!
This workshop was made possible through McQuade Library's STEMsmart grant, with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
Librarian Catherine Wong received a scholarship supported by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine- New England Region to attend workshops at Tufts University School of Medicine on Plain Language for Health. She was able to bring elements of her three days of training back to Merrimack Health Science Students in Zi Yan's Public Health and Sarah Benes' Health Behavior and Promotion where she presented a mini-workshop on Plain Language for Health and MedlinePlus to help students learn to use plain language and culturally sensitive materials in their future careers in order to effectively communicate health information to audiences with literacy and language challenges.

What have been some of the most positive aspects of this job for you?
I would say the most positive aspect of this job has been getting to work with, and for, some of the kindest most caring people that I have ever known. I have made so many friends while working here and I even consider many of my coworkers and supervisors to be like family.
One of this summer’s many building and relocation projects is a renovated space for the Academic Success Center on the 3rd floor of McQuade. The collections currently shelved there will be moved to other parts of the building, including a refurbished lower level. The books have been packed into boxes while the construction is underway. We anticipate regaining full access to the books in the last week of June. In the meantime, librarians can help you obtain needed materials digitally or through interlibrary loan–please don’t hesitate to contact us with your requests. Call your favorite librarian, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
