A Geographer's Journeys in North Carolina

by Susan F. Whitt

Tom RossThe Friends of the Library of The University of North Carolina at Pembroke are extremely pleased to present Dr. Thomas E. Ross as speaker for the Tenth Annual National Library Week Banquet. The banquet will be held Friday, April 6, 2001, at 6:00 p.m. in the Chancellor's Dining Room of the Chavis University Center. A reception will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Dr. Ross, a UNCP professor of geography, has interests ranging from "Alternative to Chemical Insecticides," for which he has published articles in two major international journals, to A Comprehensive Bibliography of Carolina Bays: An Annotated and Comprehensive Bibliography, 1844-2000, his latest book. In the February 4, 2001, issue of The Fayetteville Observer, Roy Parker, Jr. wrote that "as a persistent and expert student of them [Carolina Bays], he [Dr. Tom Ross] has few peers." Dr. Ross has been studying the Carolina Bays since 1969 and is frequently called upon by local, state, national and international media and academics to discuss them. His works are cited widely in the research efforts of other Carolina Bay scholars.

Other published works by Dr. Ross explore land cover contrast in Virginia, aquiculture and economic development, irrigation agriculture in south central North Carolina, and Native Americans in North Carolina. During the past decade, he has devoted much time to the study of Native Americans, with a special emphasis upon those living in North Carolina. He has edited two volumes dealing with North America's Native Americans and has recently edited a volume on the geography of North Carolina's Native Americans. Recently published, The North Carolina Atlas: Portrait for a New Century contains a section Dr. Ross co-wrote on agriculture, forestry, and fishing industries. This resource was given to every high school and middle school, all community colleges, every public library, and all members of the General Assembly in North Carolina. He has been a major contributor to a travel guide of North Carolina published by Fodor's.

Dr. Ross came to UNCP in 1969 as an instructor in geography after receiving his BA and MS degrees from Marshall University and earning his Ph.D. from the University of Tennessee. While at UNCP, he has published more than 50 book chapters, articles in professional journals, video projects, and maps. He is the co-editor of four books and author of five. In addition, Dr. Ross has published more than a dozen newspaper articles dealing with local geography and has had other articles published in general circulation magazines such as Our State and Carolina Country. His works are available at the Sampson-Livermore Library.

Reservations are required to attend the banquet and hear Dr. Ross speak about a North Carolina geographer's journeys. The cost is $20.00 per person. To make reservations or for more information, please call the Sampson-Livermore Library at 910-521-6655. The Friends invite everyone to this attend informative program.

Instructional Services

Information Literacy
At Mary Livermore Library

As part of the mission of The University of North Carolina at Pembroke, the Mary Livermore Library plays a critical role in supporting the University’s commitment to academic excellence. As such, the Library’s Instructional Services area promotes information literacy through a formal instruction program that aims to provide the University’s campus community with the skills needed to find, retrieve, analyze, and use information. Instructional Services offers students, faculty, and staff a structured approach toward learning information literacy skills that is hands-on and curriculum based.  

Information Literacy Instruction Sessions

Instructional Services serves to promote the development of information literacy and the skills necessary for lifelong learning through information literacy instruction. Utilizing library instruction classes, hands-on exercises, and online teaching tools, the goals of Instructional Services are to help the library user become more effective and efficient in searching for information and to help the user gain a better understanding of how to evaluate and use information. The Library uses the Association of College and Research Libraries’ (ACRL) Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education as a guide to developing learning objectives, assignments, and assessments.
