Beyond Suffering and Suffrage:  The Past, Present and Future of International Civil and Human Rights

A DVD program distributed by the Alabama Department of Education and sponsored by Regions Bank. The program presents an esteemed panel of participants who recount memories of the day; the struggle; and how Alabama, the U.S., and the world were impacted by the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham on September 15, 1963. The forum was part of the city of Birmingham’s commemoration of the Civil Rights Movement. Led by Dr. Condoleezza Rice, a Birmingham native and former U.S. Secretary of State, and moderated by CBS This Morning co-anchor and O Magazine editor-at large Gayle King, the result was a candid and provocative discussion.

The DVD and accompanying study guide are located on the First Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library in the Media and Digital Resource Lab under call number E 185.61 .C5855 2013.

Inspired by a desire to provide easy and efficient opportunities for students to communicate with the Student Government Association, the SGA has so far installed three Auburn Answers iPad kiosks in high-traffic areas of campus including the Ralph Brown Draughon Library.  The iPad Auburn Answers  kiosk is located in front of the Caribou Coffee Café located in the Mell Street entrance lobby area on the Second Floor of the RBD Library.

Communicating is a simple four-step process:  students are prompted to enter their name and e-mail address;  and then are provided a chance to provide comments or suggestions which the system sorts into one of nine categories.  This next goes to the SGA directors of student feedback and who, in turn, respond to the students directly via e-mail.  This information is then compiled and sent to University administrators who can better address the concerns received.

In addition to the RBD Library location, Auburn Answers iPad kiosks are located in Village Dining and also near Chick-fil-A in the Student Center.
