There was an error in the overnight system-generated reports in our new library system and we have fixed it. We apologize for any confusion. If you have any questions or need help, please contact the Circulation desk at 860-832-3410 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We thank you for your patience!
The Connecticut State Universities and the Connecticut State Library, members of the CONSULS resource sharing consortium, will discontinue the “REQUEST’ service to share books and media between all 5 libraries as of early morning on Friday, December 23, 2016. This action is taken in advance of the transition to the new expanded CSCU 18-member consortium. Request services will return on January. 9, 2017.
IF you need materials that are in the CONSULS Consortium collections, but not by CCSU library, you should place orders with our Interlibrary Loan office, using ILLiad. This temporary solution will expire on January 9, 2017.
We expect that materials will be continued to be shipped via usual channel and that there should not be a marked difference in delivery time.
If you have any questions, please contact Sarah White, (860-832-3408) or Kim Farrington (860-832-3403), Head of Access Services.
Curious about the Valentine’s Day pipe-burst disaster that closed Elihu Burritt Library, and what we did during repairs? Want to know who draws those awesome whiteboard pictures in front of the Library entrance? Your professors keep telling you to use databases for your assignments – have you seen signs for the Library’s new Spotlight on E-Resources program?
Thank you to everyone who participated in yesterday’s Library Snapshot Day! It was a fun & fitting way to celebrate National Library Week for 2016. Check out these great photos (now on our Flickr stream) from the 65 visitors who joined us yesterday.
