Booking the Theater and Group Study Rooms

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

Hi all,

I’ve spoken with several library assistants recently about what should happen when a patron who has booked one of our rooms is late and another patron is inquiring about using the space. We came to the conclusion that allowing the original booker 30 minutes to get to the library (unless they’ve called and let us know they will be late) is the best amount of time before forfeiting to the next person asking. When folks make these reservations, please let them know about. Something like, “The library will cancel your reservation if we have not heard from you within 30 minutes of your start time” is sufficient. This will be reflected on the website too.

New Macs in the Ring

Friday, November 15th, 2013

Hi all,

Fourteen of the older macs in the ring were replaced by brand new macs. The rest won’t be replaced until next fall 2014. There is one glaring difference with these new macs: no optical drives. So, if a patron needs to view an MFA disc they will need to do so on one of the older machines. If they need to watch a course reserve DVD, the TVs in the back corner are also always an option.

Thanks! Let me or Heather know if you have any questions.
