The Freeman/Lozier Library is always changing to keep up with the latest trends and services to offer you our best. Our More Than Books newsletter has a “Did You Know” section that keeps you informed about the changes that have taken place in the library. Here is the latest news from that newsletter:
The Library has a study room policy?
After 15 years without a study room policy and using a first come/first-served system, the Library has implemented a study room policy due to high demand. On October 1st, the Library began allowing students, faculty, staff, and alumni to book the study rooms for 1-hour intervals, up to four hours. By having a procedure in place, this will enable more students to reserve the rooms for when they need them most. “Book a Study Room” links can be found on the Library web page under the Services tab, or under Quick Links at the bottom of the page.
The library’s Reference and audio-visual collections are moving?
You may have noticed the Reference books have been dwindling on the shelves. We are in the process of weeding many books in this collection and moving the books that are left into the General Collection so that they may be circulated. As for the audiobooks and DVD’s, they will also move to the General Collection shelving area. Once this stack area has been cleared, we will remove the shelving and use the space for something more valuable such as, individual study spaces.
Library Policies are listed on the Library webpage?
You may have wondered where you can find some of the Library’s policies electronically. The Library has 26 policies that have been posted on a LibGuide and separated into the following categories: Circulation Policies, General Library Policies, and Technical Services Policies. The FAQ and Library Policies link can be found on the library webpage under About Us.
