- Service Update: Circulation, Research and Technology Assistance Desks Combined in Library
In the past, patrons had to go to three different desks for services. Last year we positioned research and technology at the same desk. In 2018, you will be able to receive circulation, research, and technology support at the same desk.
Starting Monday, January 8, 2018 patrons wanting to borrow resources (e.g., laptops, Main and Reserve Collections, etc.), requesting research support (e.g., citing resources, locating journal articles, etc.), and needing assistance with technology (e.g., Bridge Bucks, printing, scanning, etc.) can do so at the location of the current General Services Desk.
Hours of service for each are as follows:
- General Services Desk: 8 a.m.–11 p.m.
- Research Desk: 9 a.m.–8 p.m.
- Technology Support: 11 a.m.–11 p.m.
- General Services Desk: 9 a.m.–8 p.m.
- Research Desk: 9 a.m.–5 p.m.
- Technology Support: 11 a.m.–6 p.m.
- General Services Desk: 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
- Research Desk: 1–5 p.m.
- Technology Support: 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
- General Services Desk: 1–9 p.m.
- Research Desk: 1–5 p.m.
- Technology Support: 1–9 p.m.
With services centralized and shorter chains of communication for patrons and staff, we hope this will better serve the community.
This is a pilot project and once operational, we want to know what your experience is! You can let us know in person, via our Ask Us services, or by submitting a comment/suggestion. We do value and look forward to your feedback!
- General Services & Information and Research Assistance Desk Redevelopment: December 19 - 22, 2017 & January 2 - 5, 2018
Preparations for migrating research and technology support from the current Information & Research Assistance Desk to a space inside the General Services Desk space will begin December 19, 2017 and conclude by January 5, 2018.
The current Information & Research Assistance Desk will be removed following the migration. Throughout the process, there may be additional dust and noise associated with the work. Levels 9 and 11 will be least impacted by the work.
During this time, patrons needing assistance can see the General Services Desk and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
