The SAE Digital Library database no longer requires log in authorization. Instead it now uses proxy authentication as is true of most of the databases available through the Auburn University Libraries.
The SAE Digital Library is an information management system that provides full-text SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) technical documents via the web.
Construction work has begun on the Reference Consultation Room (Room 2341) located on the Second Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library next to the entrance to the Reference Department Offices. (This room is also used for the Tiger Advisor service offered by the Office of Undergraduate Studies during the Fall and Spring Semesters).
John (Auburn Class of 1962) and Faye Vick of Andalusia, Ala. recently donated thousands of 19th.-century artifacts to Auburn University. The Vick Collection focusses on American postal history, the Civil War, naval history, and the history of Alabama.
A portion of the collection is currently on display in 13 glass display cases in the Special Collections and Archives Department located on the Ground Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library.
Among the items on display is a letter signed by Raphael Semmes, captain of the Confederate Navy commerce raider CSS Alabama. The ship was the South's most successful naval commerce raider during the Civil War. Also on display are Confederate Marine Corps letters from Lieut. Edward Crenshaw of Butler County and many historical postal items.
The Vick Collection will remain on display through August. Click on this link to see hours of operation for the Special Collections and Archives Department.
