Robbie the Royal Raptor Contest starts August 26

Follow regentulibrary on Instagram and look for me each day during the first week of classes.

During the first week of classes, the Library will run a contest in honor of our new mascot, Robbie the Royal Raptor. Currently enrolled Regent students will have five opportunities (one each day) to win a $15 Amazon gift card.

Each morning, we will post a picture of Robbie engaged in an activity in the Library or on the campus. To enter for that day, simply like the photo, add a comment, and follow us (if you are not already). That’s it! We will hold a drawing and announce that day’s winner at midnight the next day.

How to Enter:

  • The contest runs Monday, August 26 to Friday, August 30.
  • At the start of each day (midnight), the Library will post a photo of Robbie somewhere in the Library or on the Regent campus. Simply like the photo, add a comment, and follow us. You have until the end of the day (11:59 PM, Eastern Time) to enter.

Contest Rules:

  • Drawing will be held among eligible entries at midnight the next day.
  • Winners must currently be enrolled at Regent.
  • Winners must like and comment on the photo and follow the Library.
  • Students may enter each day but may win only one time.
  • Winners will be announced on the post at the end of each day.
  • Winners will be contacted by email and awarded a $15 Amazon gift card On September 3.

Good luck, and help spread the word about our contest!

 

New Library Access Policy

The University Library and the Law Library now require that all users present ID on entrance to gain access. Members of the Regent University community must show their Regent ID. All other users will be required to present a valid form of ID and sign in. An additional check-in process will be required for non-law school users who wish to access the Law Library.

After 8:00 p.m., both libraries will only be open to Regent University students, staff, and faculty and will be closed to the public. All Regent students, faculty and staff will be required to have a unique Library access card in order to enter the building after 8:00 p.m. during open hours. Library access cards may be requested from Student Services.

These new procedures will help provide a safer environment for Regent University.

Regular library operational hours are:

  • Sunday 2:00 p.m. to midnight
  • Mon – Thurs 7:30 a.m. to midnight
  • Friday 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  • Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Check the library hours webpage for changes in hours during breaks.

Important! Special entry & ID regulations in effect May 9-11

Special rules will be in effect for access to the Library during Commencement activities.

Beginning Thursday morning, entry to the Library will be through the rear door, and beginning Thursday at 7:00pm, only current students, staff, and faculty with a valid Regent ID card will be allowed to enter.

For complete information, see our Commencement Week Access webpage.

On-Campus & Online Library Help April 29-May 2

The last week of the spring semester is upon us, and the Librarians want to help you finish successfully. From Monday (April 29) through Thursday (May 2), the Library has scheduled multiple times when research librarians will be on hand to help you find the best books, articles, and media for your final papers and projects.

We are calling our on-campus sessions Study Haven and our online sessions Study Hangouts. Join us and get answers for your thorniest research and citation questions.

Visualize data with Statista

The Library now has a subscription to Statista, one of the world’s most successful providers of statistics and quantitative data. What makes Statista unique is that all of its statistics and data are visualized in intuitive charts and graphs that can be exported into reports. The platform contains over 1,000,000 statistics on more than 80,000 topics. It also provides market forecasts, company and industry reports, and consumer market outlooks.

Statista is a multi-disciplinary resource where all Regent users doing quantitative research for their projects are likely to find relevant data. But be forewarned: the platform can be quite addictive, and if you’re not careful, you may find yourself browsing Statista after you’ve found the information you were seeking in the first place!
