Lots of returns coming in, but please look at each book and make sure it is not damaged or wet. If we catch it, we can often repair it.
As temperatures begin to fall, please remember these tips about cold weather and electronics!
If you mark a reserve item missing, please let Kellam know so that she can follow up on it and get a replacement if necessary. Thanks!
1. The upstairs (A-M) reshelving has been moved to the empty shelves before the A’s.
2. We now have three pairs of “headset with microphones” (if you’re searching in Millennium). They’re in bags in the drawer with the digital voice recorders. They are 1-day loans. Media services says they will get used.
1. Patrons asking to take our reserve DVDs for Mittel and Keathley’s summer course can do so for however long they want, apparently. It is fine for these to leave the building. A supervisor may need to override.
2. There may be patrons coming to the desk who have temp ID cards and who are not in the system. Supervisors, please go ahead and enter them, making sure to ask for both a date when they will no longer be on campus and a valid email address. Please enter these as ptype 121, Summer student.
You may get people at the desk asking where the tax forms are. If there are not any at the info desk, then we don’t have any. There is a book at said info desk (that does not leave the library – the book…and the desk, I suppose) that gives instructions on how to submit your taxes online.
When you retrieve a piece of equipment in the cabinet, you will see that the spot for booked items are now on the right side for easier access. The conference phones are on the same shelf. The conference camera is on the shelf above. The student LCD projectors have more room on the left side shelves.
We have been given 2 more XA10 camcorders so we have four in our inventory. These are placed on the shelf below the booked shelf.
I have added a lighting kit and a couple of wireless mics. They are on the shelves, and ready for checkout. I will add detailed information on those items in the next blog.
The Courtesy Hold Shelf should be used for NON-LIBRARY materials only. If it is a library item, it should be put on hold via Millennium. Thanks!
