If anyone wants to renew a carrel, please have them show you their Banner registration for a 500-or-higher level class for either J-term or Spring and renew accordingly. 2/2 for J-term, 5/22 for Spring.
If someone comes to the desk and wants to renew their thesis carrel, please have them login to Banner and show you that they are registered for a 500 or higher level course for Spring (or J-term, if they just want it for J-term). If they are registered, please renew their key to either February 3rd or May 22nd.
If anyone comes to the desk asking for a carrel, go ahead and check it out to them. Assuming, of course, that they are ptype 6 (Thesis ALL). If they are not, please have them show you their Banner registration. If they are signed up for a 500+ level class in J-term or Spring, change them to ptype 6 and check out the thesis carrel.
All carrel or locker keys checked out after today should have an automatic due date of August 15th. Let me know if you notice any deviations.
For anyone who cares:
Carrel keys and locker keys now have their own separate item types and loan rules. This will help us control renewals, due dates, bookings, etc. of each without them interfering with each other as they do now. Currently, both are set with a set due date of May 21st. Questions to Dan.
As carrel keys start getting returned, please DO NOT check them in without first finding the carrel check-in clip board (between Kim and Janine’s desks) and actually going to the carrel and making sure it is cleaned out. If there are any problems with the carrel, please note them on the form.
In preparation for online booking in the fall, the carrel keys appear a bit differently in MIDCAT (and Millennium). They have been separated according to where they are in the library (Upper North, Lower South, etc.) and each has a link to its own map. The records can be found by typing any of the following: carrel, carrel keys, thesis carrel, senior thesis carrel. The hope is that this will make booking easier for the patron. We’ll see…
