INDIANAPOLIS -- On the eve of his retirement from IUPUI, University Library Dean David Lewis has been recognized with one of the highest distinctions in the state of Indiana, the Sagamore of the Wabash. The award is the highest honor bestowed by the governor of Indiana and is a personal tribute given to those who have rendered distinguished service to the state. On behalf of Gov. Eric Holcomb, Indiana State Archivist Jim Corridan conferred the honor on Lewis for his service to libraries across the state over the last 25 years.
Many studies have found that petting or playing with a pet can reduce a person's stress during difficult times. Since finals week is one of the most stressful times in the life of a IUPUI student, IUPUI University Library and Paws and Think will be hosting therapy dogs in the library Sunday, April 29 - Thursday, May 3, 2018. The therapy dogs will arrive at 8:00pm each night and will be stationed on the library's second floor.
