Are you seeing dots?

I have updated the blue dots on the light switches that should be turned off in the stacks at closing. Dots had peeled off the switch at the last row on the 4th level. Please make a mental note and remember to turn off this row. Thanks!

One of the faculty told me that he is now happily using Zotero. When you have the time please read the about page to learn what it is. If you are using the Firefox browser, then it is fairly simple to download it and play around with it. I've downloaded it to the PC at the Reference Desk.

The per-gov directory

All web pages in Periodicals and GOVDOCS will be unavailable this weekend due to technical difficulties. Ray will address these problems on Monday.

Micro Reader Instructions / Troubleshooting

There is a copy of the instructions in the Ref Desk drawer plus with the machines in the Law Room. When you have problems with the machines that the troubleshooting does not fix, move the patron to another machine. Place an out of order sign on the machine and make sure to note the problem on the sign. Then notify me by either email or you can leave me a phone message. I will try to service the machine as soon as my schedule allows.

Headcounts on Weekends

Please notice that there are now at the ref desk copies of headcount sheets for LTL and Special Collections. On Sat and Sun we will need to use all three sheets to do headcounts.

Phone list

I've placed an updated phone list next to the phone in the classroom.

Micro Machines

The microform machines are officially at their new home. We have already had a patron use them! I will be moving a small table to the area for a return box for materials. The microform collection will be moving soon as well. Bridgette has sent an email as a refresher on the use and troubleshooting of the machines. Just a heads up of the goings on.

An idea for a reference meeting

Maybe we should do a short training session on how to use the blog in one of our upcoming reference meetings.


Creating a new post

Unless I'm wrong (and please tell me if I am) you'll need to go to cclrefdesk@blogspot.com and then type in your userid and password to create new post.

Old log books and desk calendars

Tom has all of these in his office.
