How do researchers locate poems among eight million digitized news pages from the past? UNL's Elizabeth Lorang has teamed with Leen-Kiat Soh, associate professor of computer science and engineering, to develop software that will perform image-processing functions to mine the data -- and gain new insights into the role of American poetry through history.

The hiring initiative, which was announced Oct. 2 during Chancellor Harvey Perlman’s State of the University address, would include new faculty in the College of Engineering, the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Business Administration, the College of Education and Human Sciences and the new college that is being created from the existing colleges of art and architecture.
