This is a quiet study area


While certain areas of Davis Family Library have always been known unofficially as good spots for quiet study, recently we’ve formalized that a bit by installing signage marking some areas as “Quiet Study Areas”. Look for the big blue Q and please avoid conversation, either in person or on the phone, anywhere near these signs. Of course, LIS staff won’t be going around the building “shushing” people, but we hope the new signage makes it more obvious which parts of the building are reserved for quiet contemplative study.

iPads are now available at the Circulation Desk

LIS is pleased to announce that iPads are now available at the Circulation Desk of the Davis Family Library. They will circulate to faculty and staff for two weeks. A list of pre-installed apps can be viewed here. Stop by and check one out today!

Office 2010 and 2011 install discs at Circ

An error has been discovered in the install discs for Microsoft Office 2010 and 2011, so they are getting fixed by the Helpdesk. Unfortunately, this means that if you have used these discs to install the software at home, you will need to re-install once the discs are fixed. Stay tuned to this post for an update as to when they are available again. Also – if anyone thinks this should be a broader post than just LIS staff, please feel free to re-categorize.
