August in the Library is pretty much the calm before the storm that is Fall Term. Though it may look quiet in here, we’re hard at work making sure we’re ready to knock your socks off beginning August 24th.
Part of that prep work was completed at this beginning of this month as we concluded our annual inventory process. Once a year we physically scan every item in the collection to make sure our records are as accurate as possible and that we haven’t accidentally acquired items that belong to the other campuses. This year we finished in a record two days, and (since we have to do part of it while we’re open) we’d like to thank the handful of students who cheerfully put up with all the beeping noises we made scanning the books.
Another part of the process is our soft roll-out of the Accudemia check-in system, which will allow us to understand better the needs of students and staff accordingly. Be sure to have your student ID handy to swipe in and (just as importantly!) swipe out when you use the Library and Learning Commons.
September is coming up fast, and with it Banned Books week. If you or your class would be interested in participating in our reading of Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, please contact Library Manager Jennifer Grey and let her know.
That’s it for now. Until next month, see you in the stacks!
