The Library will suspend all book and film ordering from early May until early July. Faculty, students, and staff who would like the library to acquire books and films in early summer should get in their requests as soon as possible. The deadline for requesting print books and DVDs is May 6; the deadline for e-books and streaming films is May 13. Ordering will resume on July 5.
The suspension of ordering is needed while the Library transitions to a new system for managing day-to-day operations. The new system, which will include a new Library Catalog, marks another important step in the Library’s move to open source software and allows us to become part of a community working to build and improve library systems for all. More information about the change is available on a special library news page.
