Journalism Library status

The Journalism Library continues to be closed as construction remains ongoing at the Graduate School of Journalism. At present, we hope to reopen in early October.

The Journalism Library collection can currently be found in its entirety at Lehman Library. The circulating Journalism collection and books from the reference shelf are shelved separately from Lehman's collection, in the Lehman sorting area, and the CLIO location reflects this. Current Journalism Master's projects and theses are kept at Lehman's reserve desk, as is Journalism Reserves, and periodicals and newspapers received by the Journalism Library. CLIO locations have also been modified for these materials.

Items that have circulated from Journalism's regular collection may be returned to other campus library (Butler Library being the closest one), and should be sent back to Lehman Circulation. Journalism Reserves items circulate from Lehman Reserves, and should be returned there.

Deborah Wassertzug, the Journalism Librarian, is temporarily housed in 309A Butler Library, and can be reached there by phone at 4-5477.

The new Journalism Library will be part of the new student center, opening this Fall. Please visit the Journalism School's homepage for construction updates:

Free eResource Selection Guidelines

This came over the CUL selectors list. Note, however, that we should probably route such requests to Michael. I'm just sharing this to remind people that we can and should identify free resources for CLIO.

"The policy statement on selecting and requesting cataloging for free eResources is now posted on the Collection Development website. From SWIFT got to Collection Development and click on 'Format Policy Statements.'

"The policy statement on selecting free eResources includes a link to the Internet Resource Cataloging Request (IRCR) form."

Static CLIO Sunday

CLIO will be "read only" for much of Sunday so that we can perform an indexing upgrade. The OPAC will be available but users will not be able to log in and perform circulation-related activities such as renewals or recalls. Borrow Direct and Offsite requests will not be affected. Health Sciences is the only unit open on Sunday and they have been alerted.
