MFA Theses Waiting to Be Shelved

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

Hi all,

I just wanted to check in and ask for your help with shelving MFA theses: If you are on a Video Desk shift and you see MFA theses lined up on the counter (behind the chalkboard), this means they are in a queue waiting to be shelved.  If you could please take a moment to do this when there is downtime back there, it would be appreciated!

On a related note: We have been processing a lot of new theses lately, thanks to Sloan, Chris, and Ceili!  If you are shelving theses and find that it is getting very crowded in an area, please let me know.  The plan right now is to shift all of the theses again during the summer break, but we can make adjustments as necessary if we can’t hold out until then!

If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know.

Thank you in advance,


Faculty checkouts for course reserve movies

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

Per Debra, faculty members can now check out course reserve movies overnight so that they can review them. They should check them out no earlier than 5:00 PM on the condition that they return them first thing when we open the next morning (or put them in the 1st floor dropbox before 9:30). Remember, faculty members can also do same-day checkouts of course reserve movies so that they can show them in class. If you have any questions, please ask Lillian. Thanks!
