What happens in the library when the students aren't around?

Lots of things! We're busy planning for the future, taking care of projects that need to be completed before fall semester begins, & trying out new ideas to see what works.

Here are just a few of the things we do during the summer:

  • Attend virtual webinars
  • Move collections
  • Process new collections & manuscripts
  • Upgrade computers & software
  • Implement new programs
  • Order, process, & catalog materials
  • Make sure books & materials are shelved properly
  • Count everything that doesn't move
  • Order supplies
  • Ponder a lot
  • Schedule future displays & exhibits,
  • Handle ILL requests
  • & so much more
What? You thought we read all day? Sorry to disappoint you!
