Welcome to the first issue of InsideCUL, an online newsletter that we will be posting on the 15th of each month. We hope that it will succeed in being universal in scope—that is, in reference to the CUL universe—offering a variety of news items from many different units and on many CUL-related topics, including research, collections, services, staff . . . you name it.

We mourn the loss of Lenore Coral, Cornell’s music librarian since 1982, who died Tuesday, March 8 at Hospicare in Ithaca.
