Afro-Latina histories

The University of Delaware Library has announced the opening of a new digital collection, the Delaware Afro-Latina oral histories collection.

Applying biosafety standards

September has been declared National Biosafety Stewardship Month by the National Institutes of Health, and UD Environmental Health and Safety and the University Biosafety Committee are supporting the awareness campaign.

Green roofs, or thin vegetated roofs, are increasingly used as an emerging solution to reduce energy costs, lengthen roof lifespans, and protect water quality.

Starting in 2008, an interdisciplinary team at UD worked to design and install the University’s first green roof over the classroom wing of the Colburn Lab.

The project was completed this summer and Chad Nelson, assistant professor of landscape design, will share the history of the project and will offer insights for groups interested in pursuing other green roof projects.
