Moving takes a lot of people.

Sometimes it gets messy.

After the mess you have emptiness.

Areas that were tidy, are not tidy anymore.

Bizarre accidents happen. Not to worry, no books (or librarians) were harmed.

Soon we will be all tidy and organized again. Ths is a library, after all.

Microfiche Collection Has Moved!

The Microfiche collection has been moved to the 1st floor of the addition. Photo 1 below shows the view from the Current Periodical room. The collection is down the hallway to the left, just prior to passing into the original building. Photo 2 shows the collection itself.

The microfiche collection houses a number of valuable resources, including the ERIC educational documents and a large number of government document titles.

This year we’ll begin sprucing up the older part of Odum Library.

This list will help you find things and people that have been moved– such as the Circulation desk, Distance Learning offices, Instructional Materials Collection (IMC), Fine Arts Materials Collection (FAMC), Governor’s Honors Program scores (GHP), and Interlibrary Loan (ILL) offices.

by Maureen Puffer-Rothenberg on June 5, 2009 in Odum Library

Russell Brand’s My Booky Wook <BROWSE PN1992.4.B69 A3 2009, 1st floor> chronicles the British actor/comedian’s career, addictions and remarkable sexual history (if you haven’t heard of Brand, he played the obnoxious rock star Aldous Snow in  Forgetting Sarah Marshall).

Also available in BROWSE this week:

Actor Michael J. Fox’s memoir Always Looking Up: the Adventures of an Incurable Optimist

Mommy-blogger Heather B. Armstrong’s It Sucked and then I Cried: How I Had a Baby, a Breakdown, and a Much Needed Margarita

Actress Mary Tyler Moore’s Growing Up Again: Life, Loves, and Oh Yeah, Diabetes

BROWSE best-sellers are now on the 1st floor, in the older part of the building (the main campus side, towards West Hall).
