Research Questions During Intersession

You won’t see librarians at the Research Desk again until Sunday June 29, but if the library is open, librarians are around! The go/askus page tells you how to find us. If you receive a research question, please don’t hesitate to refer it to us.

  • During regular hours, the easiest thing to do is to call x5496. That number rings in all librarian offices, and one of us should be available to help on the phone or in person. Try us even outside of regular hours! Often, at least a few of us are here even during the dinner hour.
  • You’re welcome to just walk over to our offices, too! Most of us are in the row of offices behind the Research Desk.
  • At any hour, you also can use to the go/askalibrarian form, which sends an email to all librarians.

Please encourage all researchers to drop by! It’s not interrupting. It’s our job!

Circ meeting 5-22-14

– Dan gave a brief update on the FMMC equipment meeting he attended this week – nothing was decided and Dan will keep everyone posted.

– Bike update: Bikes are done for the semester and will not continue over the summer. May return in the Fall.

– Overall, the semester went very well. Students were good, reserves survived without Kellam.

– 24/7 – security company has not impressed of late, we will plan to collect student cell numbers to hand out to overnight workers.

– All circ staff will be signing a confidentiality agreement. Dan will send out.

– Kellam reports that Tuesday 6/17 is the BL pickup date for facilities. We will probably go up to set up on Thursday 6/19.

– NExpress seems to be past the bumps created by the lack of server upgrades midway through the semester. Still a few straggler items coming through.

– Reshelving is looking better than it ever has at this time. Carrel returns are more work (checking each one in person) but ultimately worth it.

– No update on Armstrong situation.
