The new Meditation Room in the Library provides students relaxing space for mental escape during the day.The room will be accessible during Library hours; however, it will remain locked. Students can obtain the key to enter the Meditation Room from the front desk, but will be required to leave their driver's license ID -- which will be returned, once you return the key. Maximum occupancy is six people at a time. ASG kindly requests that anyone using the Meditation Room please refrain from wearing shoes or bringing food/drink inside the room. Also, please keep use of electronic devices to a minimum, and be respectful of the space, and other people waiting to use the room. For additional information, contact Tomilyn Thornberry, ASG president.

Avoid overdue Library fines—plus additional fees and delays in registration. San Jose Campus branch manager librarian Roseann Erwin reminds students to check their Palmer email frequently. In addition to system-generated "courtesy notices" (sent when checked-out Library items are three days from their "due date"), you will also receive "overdue" notices as well as fine totals for late materials. Failure to settle fines in a timely manner will delay your registration status. The Library submits a quarterly "holds" list to the Registrar with the names of students who have outstanding fines or fees, which restricts your ability to register for classes, until the outstanding fines and fees have been paid. Avoid any inconvenient delays—pay your outstanding Library fees today. If you have any questions, see Roseann in the Library.

Students can renew books via the Palmer web page. Go to "www.palmer.edu" and choose "Libraries" under the Academic listing section of the front page, and then click on "Catalog/Databases" from the menu options on the left side of the page. Once you are in the WEST catalog, use the log-in feature on the upper-right portion of the page. For "User ID" enter the barcode number on your Palmer student ID card, or your matriculation number. Your password is "changeme" until you've created your own password. Once you've established an account, you will see the online renewal option.

If you have any questions regarding the online renewal process, please see Roseann Erwin, San Jose Campus branch manager librarian.

Through a unique program offered by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Palmer College is making it possible for eligible U.S. veterans enrolled or about to enroll at any of Palmer's three campuses to have up to 100 percent of their out-of-pocket tuition and fees associated with education programs covered for a one-year period. The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program covers all undergraduate and graduate tuition not already provided for by the Post-9/11 Veterans Education Assistance Act of 2008.

If you are a U.S. veteran, or know a U.S. veteran who is considering chiropractic as a career path, now is the time to tell them about Palmer—and the Yellow Ribbon Program. To learn more about the Yellow Ribbon Program at Palmer, please visit www.palmer.edu/yellowribbon/.
