CAMIO: Catalog of Art Museum Images Online

The following new e-resource was recently added to the Columbia
University Libraries website.

CAMIO: Catalog of Art Museum Images Online

CAMIO fills the gap left by the end of operations of the Art Museum
Image Consortium (AMICO). This new database not only supports art
history, studio art, and design departments, it also provides rich
context for history, religion, and other humanities programs.

printer fixed

As some of you may know, pages printed from the reference desk computer (local, not remote) from Firefox were coming out blank. Not anymore.

The problem had to do with custom settings that got messed up in print preview. Documents are now set to print at 100%. Should you ever need to change the setting to print something, please remember to restore the original setting when you're through.

Does the Squeaky Door Get the Grease?

At a student's urging, I placed a work order with facilities to de-squeak the 2nd floor entrance to the library. But maybe I should have just looked to see if we have any WD-40 in the office supply cabinet?
