The News from Fondren, a newsletter initially published in 1991, is dedicated to Rice University's Fondren Library staff news and events. The News from Fondren heightens awareness around the campus of Rice University of Fondren Library events, staff articles on current Fondren Library services, new services offered to patrons, and new staff hired in the library. The newsletter has in the past been published three to four times a year, but is currently published as a biannual. These issues are mirrored in the depository.
