Congratulations Lindsay on the remarkable accomplishment!
Making it easier to access ALL our books
In April, library staff began a major re-organization of our print holdings: We are combining the ‘circulating’ and ‘reference’ collections, so that all our books on a given subject will be found in one place. This interfiling will increase the accessibility and browsability of the collection, and further encourage those serendipitous discoveries we love to make!
Reference books will continue to be library-use only (or one-week loans for faculty, staff, and graduate students) and will retain, for identification, the code ‘REF’ in their call numbers and a red dot on the label. When it’s finished, this redesign will have shifted most of the books in the library, so regular users will need to re-orient themselves.
Come visit YOUR library again and see how much easier it is to access ALL our books!
Starting on Friday June 24th, Ask Chat with a Librarian will be introducing a new interface, although you will hardly even notice any difference!
The virtual reference portal will still offer the same seamless access to expert research assistance from qualified librarians and library staff, but will now be faster and more efficient for you to access the reference help you need from wherever you are!
