Davis Family library now has 4 new portable whiteboards. These boards are approximately 3 x 5 feet mounted on 4 casters and can be moved around the building and used for group projects or individual student use. Two whiteboards will be initially placed in Harmon, and the other two will be on the main floor 1 near Wilson media and 1 elsewhere on the main floor. You may have to occasionally supply a whiteboard DRY ERASE marker, if the attached markers dry out or are removed. Please do not loan any other type of marker for the whiteboards.
These are for building use only, and can’t be used in the cafeteria. Let me if you have any questions.
A reminder that we can no longer take any course evaluations. If a student comes to the circulation desk with an evaluation form please let them know they have to take it to Old Chapel.
Hi all, during this busy stressful week a reminder that 4 hour loaner laptops and power cords can not leave the library. Please remind patrons checking these out that they are to be used in the library. The great hall is not part of the library.
Armstrong’s Ethernet cables have arrived and are in the reserve section. The box for keeping the IDs is just above the Ethernet cables. As posted, a middlebury ID (nothing else) must be collected or no cable can be loaned – NO EXCEPTIONS, NO EXCEPTIONS, NO EXCEPTIONS!! Re-read the blog posting from April 28th to be clear on how to loan out the cables
A section of the compact shelving (bound periodicals QP 1- QP 351) in Armstrong is not working correctly. Sometimes it’s not resetting after it has been opened and therefore none of the aisles in that area can then open. I will post signs in this area directing patrons to the circualtion desk if they have problems opening an aisle. Below is a set of instructions for using our service key” to override the shelving unit if it does get stuck. Please carefully check all aisles that will open or close when using the override key to make sure no one is in those aisles.
Compact Shelving Won’t Reset – instructions
STOP: and first check that all of the aisles you are opening are completely empty.
Get “Service Key” (looks like TV remote control) from the drawer below the cash drawer.
- Point it at the inoperative shelve unit.
- Push the yellow button (has a triangle and “!” on it).
- On the book shelf: hold in the button that is supposed to open the aisle (the button must be held in, as it will stop moving as soon as you let off the button).
- Once you’ve moved it about one foot, let off the button.
- Now push the “Reset” button on the shelf.
- If the shelf doesn’t reset, try repeating these steps again.
Hi all, Just as we did last fall semester Armstrong will once again be a collection point for course response forms starting Monday May 3rd and ending at 5 pm on Monday May 10th. Students filling out the forms have been instructed that they can turn the forms in at Armstrong Library. When you receive a form it will be in an envelope. You are to immediately deposit the form in the collection box located on the floor near the calculator drawer. Please do not hesitate to ask Carrie, Nancy or Todd if you have any questions.
A quick reminder about keys on reserves. These keys are found in the cash drawer and should have a list of who may borrow them attached. When loaning out make sure the patrons name is on the list. Lastly before checking out the key remove the list and leave it in the drawer. Thanks.
Sunday workers – a reminder that this Sunday (March 14, 2010) Daylight savings time starts. At 2 am Sunday we set our clocks forward one hour. Openers should be especially careful to set their clocks/alarms so as to arrive at the correct time to work.
I’m writing to remind everyone about leaving dishes in the staff room sink. Currently there are some dining hall dishes that have been abandoned in the our sink along with a mug. If you bring dishes to Armstrong, you are responsible to take them back with you. DO NOT LEAVE THEM in the Library.
