SLIS Library excitement does not end with the waning of Spring Semester!

In the coming weeks, your loyal SLIS Library attendants will be assembling course reserve materials for summer classes, making headway on reorganizing our stacks, and providing the first-class service that you have come to expect of us.

Firstly, your access to summer print and e-reserves will operate in the same fashion as during the normal fall and spring semesters. Look for them as the first day of your class approaches.

Secondly, one of our summer projects will be working to coordinate a reorganization of our collection. We will be integrating materials from our general collection into the our Newsletters and Annual Reports section to create a Historical Section, while the currently received Newsletters will be integrated into the Periodicals. In this way, we hope to minimize confusion and maximize simplified access to our materials.

Finally, if you plan on frequenting the SLIS Library this summer, please keep in mind that our summer hours will be changing more swiftly than James Patterson can churn out a book. Our schedule is based on the summer course timeline and when in-person classes will be meeting at our library. Summer hours are posted on the front door of the SLIS Library and on our website, accessible at here.
