July 2013

Patron Holds

 Effective July 22 you will begin to see a "Request" button when you are in the library catalog.  Use this feature to place a hold on items already checked out, or to request an available item be held for you.  Some materials, such as items from the Youth Collection, may not be requestable.  

Requests for available items will be available within 24 hours Monday-Friday.  You will receive an email notice when your item is ready for pickup.  

 

Kindle Now Available

We now have available for check-out a Kindle.  It is available at the MultiService Center Desk located on the 2nd floor.  There are some titles already loaded on it.  More will be coming.  If you see in the library's catalog that the location of the book is Multiservice Center and the call number is Kindle, then the book is loaded on the Kindle.  The Kindle will check-out for one week.  To see the titles currently available, click here:  unistar.uni.edu/record=b4350528~s1  Enjoy!

Learning Commons Update

Notice some new technology and other changes on the main floor of the library lately?  The Learning Commons is starting to come together and expand throughout the main floor.  Check the Campus Input tab on the Learning Commons home page for a summary of changes and improvements made in response to your feedback!

The Summary of Actions document is linked in the right column, under Findings and Actions.  Check the site later for more updates.
