What’s going on in the Arts Library stacks?

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

We’re trying to get rid of the “overflow” section!

The regular sized “overflow” shelves have been moved from the first floor of the stacks up to the third floor (the entrance level), next to the Circulation Desk. The oversized “overflow” section has been eliminated and remaining oversized books from overflow are now on book trucks. We are shifting the oversize stacks and integrating the overflow books during the process.

The “Courtesy Hold” shelves have been relocated behind the Circulation Desk.

We continue to store lower use titles and back runs of periodicals and hope to eventually eliminate the “overflow” section all together.

Please bear with us during the transition!
