TONIGHT - Native Voices Lecture Discussion Series

Storytelling and health as experienced by Native Americans led by Dr. Gary Cheeseman, Wednesday, September 4, 7 – 9 p.m., Farber Hall.

Gary Cheeseman, Ed.D., (Maajiiange) will tell a personal story about his own experiences with mental health issues as they exist in the Native American population.

Cheeseman has spent the past 27 years in higher education educating people about American Indians and Indigenous belief.

Important update EndNote users with macOS systems

Apple will be releasing macOS 10.15 Catalina fall 2019. Apple has made the decision to drop all 32-bit application support with this release, which will impact EndNote.

EndNote X9 for macOS will be extensively updated for compatibility prior to the launch of Catalina. If you already have EndNote X9, please install all updates as they become available to avoid interruption in your workflow.

EndNote X8 and earlier for macOS Users
Since Apple has made the decision to drop all 32-bit application support, we expect that macOS 10.15 Catalina will not run EndNote X8 and earlier. However, we want to continue to support you. We recommend one of two options:

  • Upgrade to EndnoteX9 https://libguides.usd.edu/endnote
  • If you’d prefer not to upgrade to EndNote X9, you may keep working on your current macOS. We do not recommend upgrading to Catalina with EndNote X8 and earlier as we expect major compatibility issues.
Please visit https://support.clarivate.com/Endnote/s/article/EndNote-for-Mac-macOS-Catalina-Compatibility?language=en_US for more information.

Exhibit - Infinity’s Edge

Location: 2nd Floor corner windows of the northwest side of I.D. Weeks library building.
When: Fall semester 2019

University Art Galleries Interim Director, Amy Fill and USD Graphic Design student, Lacey McLouth created a beautiful window installation for the I.D. Weeks library building. Using red removable vinyl, they hand cut the shapes and designs to create a symmetrical, lace-like pattern that was applied to the windows. Courtney Lavallie, UAG Gallery Assistant and Martha Aguirre, Oscar Howe Gallery Attendant assisted Lacey with the installation process. The artists state that “art does not have to exist in a formal gallery space and with this project, we hope to elevate and activate a common shared space”.
