Tower Revamp

The tower furniture has been reorganized recently. The 3rd floor study area is now less inviting to big groups. And 2nd and 4th are more viable options for groups, especially 4th. Check it out and if you have any suggestions, please pass them along!

Ghost records are appearing as blank lines in a catalog search. The real records will display somewhere in the list. Granuaile is working on this problem. Stay tuned.

Initialing student timecards

When initialing student timecards, please try to be aware of the time. Time should be entered quarterly such as 1:00, 1:15, 1:30, 1:45. You can round the time to the nearest quarter. I have brought this issue to their attention but your help is very much appreciated.

Music move

The Music collection is moving to the 4th floor of the tower. If you cannot locate an item on the shelf in Rm 204, please direct patrons to the tower. The move should be complete within 1-2 weeks.

Chronicle Campuswide

We are still waiting to hear if our strategic budget request for the Chronicle Campuswide (aka The Chronicle of Higher Education) has been funded. However, there are some faculty who need access immediately for the classes they teach. For this reason, we have arranged for preview period until we hear about whether the funding has been approved. We are not yet linking to it, and we are not yet telling people about it.

Naturally, people will discover it and be asking about it. When they do please be sure that they understand that it is a preview period and that the deal is not yet sealed. If they have any questions more specific than that, they should be referred to me.

Important Info From Elsie

Elsie came to the desk at 10:30 am today (9/13/07) to report that:
* The fire alarm may sound briefly, but this is just routine maintenance--no need to evacuate.
* Due to HVAC issues, the entire tower will be very cold today.

Sign in and Sign out sheet for Study Tables??

Does anyone know where the sign in and sign out sheet for the Study Tables in the Reference Department are? I had a student come up and ask where the sheet was so she could sign out, but the sheet was missing in the notebook. I tryed to look for the sheet on the reference desk but couldn't find it. Thanks so much!
