Another (45th Anniversary) Viewpoint

View of Davis Library's grounds around 5:15 PM Wednesday 7.23.14

Earlier this week—Sunday, July 20, 2014—marked the 45th anniversary of Apollo 11’s Moon Walk, the American spaceflight that landed the first humans on the Earth’s Moon’s surface. The event’s success triggered a great many technological advances that still impact our lives today and has also helped to provide greater understanding of how our Solar System was formed.

To honor and recognize this historical achievement in space exploration, Davis Library, here at the University of Rio Grande/Rio GrandeCommunity College, is highlighting some sites and resources related to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Apollo Missions. (See resources listed in box below.)

Davis Library receives a variety of NASA publications, which are housed in the Government Documents Collection found on the Main Floor
Then, for those interested in how space travel captures our imagination, we’re also featuring a few of our most popular Sci-Fi works. We have a substantial number of items in our collections related to the Star Trek universe, an entertainment franchise that has evolved from the 1960s television series about the interstellar adventures of the crew of the starship Enterprise created by Gene Roddenberry.

Star Trek: The Next Generation (successor to the original 1960s program)—Davis Library has the complete 7 seasons of the television show that aired from 1987-1994 in its Media Collection, which is located on the Main Floor (Call Numbers begin MEDIA 791.4575 S795)

Star Trek series titles found in 2nd Floor Stacks area (Call Numbers begin 813.54 S795)
Live long and prosper & boldly go where no one has gone before @ Davis Library!
