Library Website Error

Many of you have been seeing the error that pops up on the library website’s main page. That error is because of the code that makes the Ask A Librarian images change. The web designer who has been working on our site will not be able to get to fixing that error for at least another week because of the demands of his other projects. Therefore he has removed the cycling feature for now.

That means that for now we will be forced to look at pictures of Sheri on EVERY page on the website. But at least that error is gone.

In another couple of weeks we’ll hopefully have the code fixed and get changing librarian pictures without the error message.

Thanks for your patience.

Reference Usage Study

The Reference Department will be suspending our usage study for the summer since the results will not be very meaningful. As of May 1, putting used Reference books on the cart before shelving will not be necessary. We will probably be starting it up again as of September 1.

Logging Reference TRANSACTIONS will still continue throughout the summer, even though the desk will not be staffed. If you pick up a call to the Reference Desk or if you answer a reference-type question in your office or around the library (including at the Circulation Desk), please log it at \\ben\library\Reference\Reference Tracking.xls or send me an IM or email and I’ll log it for you.

Thanks very much.

Bikes in the Library

FYI but bicycles are not allowed in the library. There are bike racks on the west side of Irwin. If the patron does not have a lock it would behoove them to get one.



Equipment in Room 007

  1. Room 007 is now kept unlocked for classroom or group study use, because
  2. that room is not closely monitored, and because
  3. the computer in that room has been upgraded, complete with flat-panel monitor,

it has been deemed careless and unwise to leave the computer and other equipment just sitting there unattended.

Therefore, the computer and the accompanying monitor, projector, and other equipment have been placed on a cart and are being stored in the Government Documents Storage Room across the hall, Room 006. The overhead projector is on a second cart and is being left in Room 007, along with the boom box that one of the regular teachers has made arrangements to keep there.
