The new shelving locations are not far away from the original locations.
Here is a summary of the library materials that have experienced a shift this summer:
- The “oversize” collection. These large books are now located on the waist-high shelving at the end of the library’s Reference section -- or you could say they are right next to where the bound periodicals are housed.
- The “bound periodicals.” Journals and other periodicals have been condensed along the library’s west wall to make more room for the beginning of the circulating collection, namely, the A’s and B’s.
- The “circulating collection” or “stacks.” Two classifications (A and B) are now located on the shelves south of the bound periodicals. The library’s circulating collection continues across the back end of the library from B to Z.
New signs have been placed on the shelving end panels to indicate the location of various resources and their associated call numbers.
The library staff is always available to help students and faculty members find any resources that may have shifted during the summer.
You are encouraged to ask a library staff member whenever you need assistance.
