A New Year - Urte Berri On

January 2014 by Shannon Sisco


In 2013, we were excited to have three of our students graduate! Congratulations to Bryan, Melanie and Sabrina! Melanie will be leaving us to take a position at a local hospital after getting her nursing degree. We will be fortunate to keep Bryan (BA Political Science and Government & Spanish) and Sabrina (MA Criminal Justice) at least through the Spring Semester. Returning students Melissa, Frank, Benat and Erika will also be here to help any of our visitors in person or over the phone.

Warren Lerude book on Robert Laxalt

November 2013 by Shannon Sisco

trueWarren Lerude is professor emeritus at the University’s Donald W. Reynolds School of Journalism. He was a friend of Robert Laxalt for more than 30 years. Laxalt is the author of Sweet Promised Land. A 1957 classic about Laxalt’s life growing up with his sheep ranching father and Robert’s mother who ran a boardinghouse in Carson City. In writing this biography, Warren spent many hours in the Special Collections Department at the Library and they called on us to supply some supporting materials. It is also the start of a new book series offered by the Center for Basque Studies entitled Basque Originals.
