Krista Clumpner's (AIS-Library) article, "Librarians with laptops look savvy in Operation TLC," was published in Computers in Libraries. Clumpner highlighted librarian involvement in the laptop computer distribution at NMU.

Randall Jensen (HPER) and former graduate student William Ebben collaborated on an article titled, "Effect of complex training rest interval on vertical jump performance." It was published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. The study examined the effect of different rest intervals on vertical jump performance when combining jumping with the squat movement of resistance training. Results indicated that jumping immediately after the squat decreased performance, but jumping four minutes after squatting may increase performance.

Graduate student Craig Biwer, Jensen and Phil Watts (HPER) had an article based on Biwer's thesis published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. It was titled "The effect of creatine on treadmill running with high intensity levels" and the study indicated that supplementing creatine monohydrate did not enhance running at alternate high and low intensity during a 20-minute exercise bout.

Watts wrote an article, "Anthropometry of young competitive sport rock climbers," that was published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. The research project was part of his 1999 Peter White Scholar award, with additional support from the College of Professional Studies. Watts said it is the first study anywhere to describe characteristics in young competitive climbers. Also involved in the project were Graduate Assistant Lanae Joubert, two former graduate students--Aaron Lish and Brad Wilkins--and a Freshman Fellow, Jeremy Mast.
