Our current Government Information featured resource is the Cherry Blossom Festival resource, provided by the U.S. National Park Service.
The National Park Service has assembled a useful overview of the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C., including ways to plan a visit to the festival, maps and brochures, programs, and other resources. However, it is the section on Cherry Tree History which really stands out.
There is also a Photos and Multimedia section, which showcases the trees in videos, photographs, and even a web cam.
If you would like to learn more about this resource and other government resources, please visit our Government Information page.

March is Women's History Month. To help raise awareness, Government Information has a new featured resource: The Untold History of Women in Science and Technology.
The White House provides this website, a set of largely unknown stories of female pioneers in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields, dating from the 19th to the 21st centuries.
With women from across the Administration sharing stories of their personal heroes, this website is intended to inspire girls to go into the STEM fields. Visitors are also invited to share what they are doing in their own communities to inspire young women to pursue careers in science and technology.
Learn more about the Government Information resources we have to offer, by visiting our Government Information page.
You can also learn more about what is being done here at UNH to advance women faculty in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and the Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS) fields, by checking out UNH ADVANCE.

Last fall, UNH Manchester partnered with the Currier Museum, UNH Durham, St. Anselm College, and the University of Massachusetts Lowell, in submitting a joint application to bring the traveling exhibit First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare to New Hampshire, with the Currier Museum as the venue.
First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, is a national traveling exhibition of the Shakespeare First Folio, one of the world’s most treasured books. The Folger Shakespeare Library, in partnership with Cincinnati Museum Center and the American Library Association, is touring a First Folio of Shakespeare in 2016 to all 50 states, Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico.
The Folger Shakespeare Library recently announced that the Currier Museum has been selected as the host site for New Hampshire. The First Folio will be displayed at the Currier, with related events taking place at all of the participating institutions and, hopefully, at venues all around the state.
The traveling exhibit First Folio! The Book that Gave us Shakespeare coincides with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death in 1616. The First Folio, published in 1623, was officially titled Mr. William Shakespeares Comedies, Histories, & Tragedies, and contains 18 of Shakespeare’s 38 plays, including "The Tempest," "Macbeth," "Twelfth Night," and "As You Like It.”
Bringing the First Folio to the Currier is a wonderful opportunity for New Hampshire residents, students and scholars alike, to see firsthand the publication that made the argument for Shakespeare’s genius. A series of events--lectures, workshops, and other activities--will be planned to accompany the duration of the exhibit.
For more information about the First Folio exhibition, check out this story in the Washington Post.
You can also read an announcement on the Currier’s Facebook page.
