December Work/Life Webinar: Long Distance Care Giving
Most employees today will face having to take care of an elderly relative while they are still working and taking care of their own families. This is known as the “Sandwich Generation.” In December’s webinar, we will discuss how to collect information, communicate with compassion, be proactive and respectful and how to cope with the issues that this generation faces every day.

Due to the holidays and shipping madness, the increased risk of losses, and the lack of open libraries willing to send things, the Interlibrary Loan Department limits ordering and shipping during the second half of December.

ILLiad article requests will continue to be filled by RapidILL through Dec. 20st, but requests must have a valid ISSN and year to be processed by Rapid.
