NYU access over the holidays

Bobst Library (NYUG) onsite access will be reduced December 24-January 9th due to renovation of the front entry and the circulation desk. During this time, we will not be granting access to individuals outside of our immediate user community.

Beginning on January 10th, we will once again welcome Shares Users.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

New bookmark ready to go

I'm ready to send the new bookmark to the printer - can you have a look at it and make sure it looks OK? (The top of "On the web" at the bottom doesn't get cut off when it's printed.) Carol says we can print it all in color.

Thanks. It's at H:\Bookmarks\Bookmark.doc.
