Happy New Year and welcome back everyone!
Here are some quick reminders about the library’s Core Collection -
- ALWAYS CHECK OUT ANYTHING either from the self-checkout machines or from the Circulation Desk staff.
- NO RENEWALS
- ALWAYS RETURN TO THE ITEM RETURN BOX at the Circulation Desk, do not put them back on the shelf yourself.
By doing these, you are helping others (students and faculty) who need to use the same book; once a book is checked out the system will give library staff the information about when it will be returned. You’re also saving library staff time from having to look all over the place. Returning them to the item box allows us to shelf them back so that the next user will find them in the right spot.
Note also that some of these titles are available in the general collection in the Lower Library or even as eBooks which you can access from your laptops or electronic devices.
Remember to always ask for assistance from our friendly librarians and library staff.
Thank you and have a productive term!
