Periodicals at the circ desk

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Hi everyone,

In order to track usage of the periodicals at the Circulation Desk (Adweek, Cinefex, Lula, etc.), we’ve made barcoded slips for each item. When a student requests one of these periodicals, please check it out to them using the barcode and attach the student’s card to the slip as usual. Then when the student returns the periodical, check it back in (otherwise, we’ll get some upset patrons asking why these items are still on their accounts!). Please do this consistently so that we can get usage information on these items. The checkout rules are the same as always - in-library use only, same day checkout, one at a time.

Please let me know if you have any questions!


Light boxes

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Hello circ workers!

We have come to the time in the semester where the light boxes are heavily used.  Please remember 2 things to help this time go more smoothly:

1)check out the light box to the student, don’t just hand it over.

2)remind the student that light boxes check out for 2 hours, and that the must bring it back to the circ desk when they are finished.
