It’s not the end of the world – just the end of retrieval services.
As of October 1, you’ll notice that the “place request” button in MidCat no longer displays for materials with an “available” status. Due to decreased staffing resources, Circulation will no longer be able to retrieve requested materials from library stacks for on-campus borrowers.
While it was a valued service for our on-campus borrowers, a large amount of staff time was used to fill the many requests, time that must now be redirected towards core Circulation services.
We’re very happy to help show you how to find library materials on your own – just ask! Thanks for your understanding.
