The Research Desk is reopening today, 11 am! For the first 2 weeks, we plan to staff daytime only. For the last 2 weeks, we’ll add evenings. Important: During the first 2 weeks, if you receive a research question after 5 pm, please tell a supervisor and/or a librarian! (In addition to trying to find an answer, of course! See Research Tips for Circulation Staff.) If we can document that we’re receiving evening questions now, we’ll add evening coverage sooner.
Statistics from previous j-terms don’t justify evening Research Desk coverage, but this fall when we went back out at the Research Desk, our numbers went way up. We’re not sure what to expect this j-term.
