Morris Miller Library is very pleased to be hosting a display of Kate Piekutowski’s artwork. The display will run throughout February.
Kate is an Australian/Polish artist who predominantly works in the print industry. She is currently undertaking Masters of Fine arts in Tasmania which will be completed June 2013.
Through the medium of etching, Kate explores cultural identity within her prints. The works reflect on her disconnection to her Polish heritage and ancestors. Being a first-generation child of migrants, she is intrigued by the concept of belonging.
Kate Piekutowski is an emerging artist who has exhibited in Inka Gallery, Stable Gallery, Entrepot Gallery, Long Gallery, Rebecca Roth Gallery, Goulburn Street Gallery, Preachers and The Henry Jones Hotel. She is also exhibiting with Upraw Gallery in Sydney and PG Gallery and BES62 in Melbourne.

UTAS Library is supporting the ABC Giving Tree program again this year. The ABC Giving Tree program began life in 1988 as a small pine tree in Hobart’s ABC foyer where presenter Ric Paterson urged listeners to leave a few toys for children in need at Christmas. Nearly 25 years on and the ABC Giving Tree has snowballed into Tasmania’s largest Christmas charity. Donations are divided amongst Tasmanian charities to be handed out across the state to those who need them at Christmas.
The Launceston Campus and Morris Miller libraries are drop off points for UTAS donations – donations will be collected on 14 December. Please do not giftwrap donated items. Further information, including how to make a cash donation, at http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2010/10/25/3047596.htm
All published Royal Society Papers and Proceedings from 1924-2009 are available via UTAS ePrints. Between June-October 2012, 38,718 of these papers have been downloaded from the ePrints open access repository indicating the value of this important collection which has not previously been easily discoverable or accessible.
These refereed scholarly papers focus on research in Tasmanian natural sciences and history and other disciplines that are particularly relevant to Tasmanians.
Paper and Proceedings published between 1849-1923 are now being added to the ePrints collection.
Open Access Week promotes Open Acess “as a new norm in scholarship and research” – both research outputs and research data
The general philosophy of Open Access is that publicly funded research should be publicly available to anyone.
For researchers who make their work accessible, and the data that underpins those works, they are rewarded by increased citations through enhanced discoverability.
Open Access has the potential to greatly accelerate the pace of scientific discovery, encourage innovation, and enrich education by reducing barriers to access.
Open Access is a particularly hot topic both in Australia and overseas with funding bodies now actively supporting Open Access.
For further information about Open Access and its implications for researchers – please contact Chris Evans
Exam papers for Semester two 2011 (Oct/Nov) have been released to the Library and are now available. All are available via Summon (search by unit code e.g. CSA257). You can also check the Exam Papers tab in Reading Lists either through MyLO or here.
The Library only receives papers for those units whose teaching staff authorise the Examinations Office to release them . Queries regarding papers that have not been released should be referred to your Course or Unit Coordinator.
