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!

Carrel Day, Valentines Day edition

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.
