Today’s Hours now displaying on LIS websites!

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Users can now see today’s hours from the LIS web pages. The “All Hours” link takes users to the full Google Calendar, which has a pull-down menu for the various service points. More locations will be added in the coming days. Special thanks to the LIS Website Team, Carrie, and Ian for making this happen!

Returning items to the Music Library

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

As you may or may not be aware, the Music Library will close its doors at 5 pm on May 17th. LIS would appreciate it if all Music Library items were returned before that time. After the 17th, Music Library materials can be returned to the Davis Family Library.

Any re-shelvers out there?

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Are you bored in your work? Need to do something that really gets your brain working? Want to get out and see the world?

I can’t help you.

But if you want, you can help us; Circulation is asking for volunteers to help with the end-of-term re-shelving. If you are interested, please stop by the circulation desk.

Carrel Day, Valentines Day edition

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Carrel Day for Spring, 2011 has come and gone. There were 54 carrels available at 8 am on Monday morning. By Wednesday morning, there were 6 remaining. Most were booked online Monday morning. We had three calls at the circ desk from people who had problems booking online: 2 were Juniors (who are not allowed to book a thesis carrel) and one had overdue items (and was therefore blocked from booking). A few people called later in the day to confirm that they had booked a key, and all had. There was one instance of someone booking two carrels keys, but that was quickly discovered and remedied. We pushed back the start time from 7 am to 8 am, which was at the very least better for circ staff. All in all, it was a very smooth day, and much improved over the Fall.

Spring Thesis Carrels

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Thesis carrels will be available online or at the circulation desk starting at 8 am on Monday, February 14th. What better way to say “I love you” than to get your sweetheart a thesis carrel? More information and instructions can be found here.

Circulation wiki updates

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Several edits have been made to both the Borrowing and Circulation staff wiki pages. If you have linked to either site, you will probably need to update your links. Please let me know if you can’t find something that used to be readily available. Also, please feel free to update any out-of-date information. I did not update content, only the organization and location of the info.
