WWD is working again

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

WWD should be working again.  Let me know if you have any questions or if you can’t access WWD.


WWD is down

Friday, August 6th, 2010

Due to a billing issue, the WWD database isn’t available right now, and unfortunately this issue probably won’t be resolved until Monday or Tuesday. The good news, though, is that all WWD articles are available through ProQuest, so people needing to access them online can do so that way. Also, if people are here in the library, we do keep the past three months of the print publication up at the Circ Desk. If people ask you about WWD before it’s back up, please alert them to these alternatives. Thanks!

Backdating items from off-site bookdrops

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

Hi Circ Workers,

Just a reminder to backdate items that are returned to us from off-site bookdrops! When students put these items in the bookdrops, Mail Services drivers pick them up, bring them to the Mail Room in 79 NM, and then the items get sorted and delivered to us. This entire process can take several days, and the Mail Services doesn’t do pickups or deliveries on weekend days, which can add two days. When Renee hands these items off to you at the Circ Desk, backdate them by at least three days (on Wednesdays-Fridays) or five days (Mondays and Tuesdays, to account for weekends). (I will be working with Mail Services over the break to devise a method to make this more scientific and fool-proof.) Thanks!
