Big Changes!

If you come into the Irwin Library today, you’ll see some big changes in progress!  For the first time in 50 years our circulation desk is moving, and we couldn’t be more excited!  Starting this fall we will be doing a combined circulation/reference desk that will allow us to provide a higher level of service to all of our patrons. Highly trained students from our Information Commons program will be staffing this new combined desk, and referring more in depth reference questions to liaison librarians. This is based on models that more and more libraries around the nation are moving to that use student staffed service points and peer-to-peer mentoring. The old circulation area will become a new student study space. We are also adding new technology based collaborative work spaces for students and staff.

Here is our old circulation desk:

Here is the empty space before the desk was moved (you may recognize this as the space where music reference was housed – if you are looking for this, it is now on the second floor with the rest of the music materials):

And here is the desk in place, almost ready to go!
