Checked out items

You asked:  Please bring back sending notifications for checked out items when someone else needs them. 

Irma says:  If you see a book is checked out you may now request an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) instead of  a hold or recall.  We will obtain the book from another library.  We found that this provides faster service to you than recalling the item from whoever has it checked out.  If you need any assistance with ILL please Ask Us.

Group study booths

You asked:  Please have more booths for group study that aren't in reserved rooms

Irma says:  We have booths like the one you see in this picture on a first come first served basis on floors 2-5 and the basement of the Tower.  They have plugs for laptops and other electronics.  We also have a variety of open group seating on floor 2-5 and several areas on the first floor.  Check it out along with a cool video on this page.

24/5 Space

You asked:  Can the whole library be open overnight?  The Reading Room and Reference are such nice places to study. 

Irma says:  Those are great study spaces and we'd love to be able to keep them open. But, if we did, we'd need to keep the College Avenue entrance open due to fire and safety regulations. That would require more staff and unfortunately, we don't have the funding to cover it.

Digital sign

You asked:  May we advertise our oganization's programs on the Libraries' rotating digital sign?

Irma says:  Many groups ask about this.  Our policy is that this sign is for Libraries sponsored events and services only.  Irma hopes that you understand that we would get overwhelmed if we opened it up to all campus offices and organizations.  As an alternative we do have a bulletin board on the first floor across from the Check Out Desk where any student organization may post flyers and notices.  It's in a very visible location!
