1. Haggerty Museum launches online database of collection

The Haggerty Museum of Art has added an in-house digital collection database to its website to allow visitors to view more than 1,100 artworks today, making nearly a quarter of the museum’s permanent collection available to art lovers worldwide. Approximately 350 artists are represented on the Haggerty website, representing 29 different countries.

Easily searchable by the artist’s name, title of the work, nationality and type of object or medium, the website database includes works considered to be the most important objects in the collection, including special collections like the Rojtman Old Masters collection, Barbara Morgan photographs, the Fishman Neue Sachlichkeit collection of paintings and prints and the recently donated Tatalovich collection of contemporary and modern prints.

"Bringing this upgraded information about the works in the collection, along with images, to the web increases opportunities for conversation with other institutions and scholars about the Haggerty collection," said Wally Mason, director of the Haggerty. "Just as exciting is the prospect that the permanent collection web presence will lead to more awareness by students and faculty, as well as the general public, of the wealth of wonderful Haggerty objects that we can’t always share in the galleries."

3. Direct deposit information due this week for student payroll

Students should submit direct deposit information by Wednesday, Aug. 17 (today, Aug. 15 for law students), to prevent interruptions in refund payments. Students who register by Wednesday, Aug. 17, will receive their student payroll by direct deposit. Direct deposit for both student payroll and refunds from the Office of the Bursar are now available through a single self-service tool through CheckMarq.

Students can log on to CheckMarq, go to Quick Links, select the Bursar tab and click on “sign up for direct deposit.” By entering checking or savings account information one time only, students will receive timely delivery of both their paycheck and, if applicable, any credit balance due. To authorize direct deposit, students will need to enter their bank account number and bank routing number. Previously, students needed to sign up for payroll direct deposit through MyJob and refund direct deposit through CheckMarq.

Students who have previously registered for payroll direct deposit do not need to re-enter their direct deposit information, but should verify account information by logging in to either CheckMarq or MyJob to review account information.
