This is the first in a series of occasional newsletters announcing new services and resources at the Z. Smith Reynolds Library.

As a service to faculty, the Z. Smith Reynolds Library has instituted a new photocopy program for journal articles. Pricing is on a cost-recovery basis at $0.15 per page with a minimum charge of $3.00, which may be paid in cash or billed to departmental accounts.

Photocopying or scanning requests can be placed through the Interlibrary Loan website, in person at the Circulation Desk, or by calling x4931. Requests may also be submitted for book delivery. More Details

Interlibrary Loan Enhancements

Friday, October 28, 2005 2:53 pm

Last spring the Interlibrary Loan Department launched ILLiad. ILLiad is an enhanced interlibrary loan management software program that will make the life of a faculty member easier. ILL patrons can use the online system to renew items, check the status of their requests, re-submit canceled or past requests, and access electronic articles. Users can also submit requests directly from many of the library’s databases by simply clicking on the “Full Text Options” link. This feature transfers all bibliographic citation information directly to an article or loan request form. For more information, please visit the ILL website, email us at, call us at x5006, or stop by Library Room 303.

Library Support from President Hatch

Monday, October 17, 2005 12:34 pm

In August, seventeen departmental library representatives wrote to President Hatch asking his support for increased library resources. The President promptly replied that libraries exist at the center of our academic endeavors and pledged not to allow the library budget to remain static again. Library needs will be evaluated, reflected, and incorporated into future strategic planning efforts.
