Library Planning Committee Recommends Extended Book Limit

In the February issue of ZSReads, it was announced that the Library Planning Committee was considering a recommendation to limit the number of books checked out at any one time to 50. Many of you wrote back asking to increase the number or to abolish limits altogether for the sake of extended research projects. The purpose of the recommended policy was to make books more available to students who might be reluctant (or lack the time) to issue a recall. After consideration of all input, the Committee revised its recommendation to a limit of 100 books.

24 Hour Finals Week a Huge Success

ZSR tried an experiment this semester by keeping the entire Library open 24 hours during final exams. It was judged a huge success by students who appreciated the study space and the food that was provided. Donations were received by a number of departments and offices on campus to help with costs and 30 library staff volunteered to adjust their schedules to work all or part of the night. Now it seems there is no going back!

Take the Virtual Library with You!

Even if you are out of the country, you are never very far from the resources of the Z. Smith Reynolds Library. Consult your library liaison on what databases and full-text resources are available to you online. It may be more than you think!

LibQUAL+TM Survey Completed

Saturday, April 22, 2006 1:33 pm

Sincere thanks go to all faculty members who completed the recent LibQUAL+TM survey on library satisfaction. We participate in this national survey every other year in order to gain feedback on our services, as well as to compare our performance to peer academic libraries. We will get this year’s results in June and will immediately start work on any areas that are shown to need improvement. Congratulations to Dilip Kondepudi and Candelas Gala who were the lucky faculty winners in the drawing for a $25 gift card to the Bookstore/Deacon Shop.

Help Desk Lite

Tuesday, April 4, 2006 1:36 pm

What: Help Desk Lite in the Library
When: 4 PM – 6 PM, Monday – Thursday
Where: Room 258 (in the ITC Computer Lab)

Thanks to the IS Help Desk, the library now offers Help Desk Lite, a “lite” version of what the Help Desk offers at IS. IS staff will be available from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in room 258 (in the ITC Computer Lab) to offer help troubleshooting ThinkPad issues.

Note: There will be no “loaner” ThinkPads given out at this site, students and faculty will still have to go to the Help Desk for those.

There are also phones in Room 258 so that students and faculty will be able to contact the IS Help Desk. During non-staffed hours, students and faculty will also be able to plug in to a wired connection and power in Room 258 and troubleshoot their own issues, if they so desire.
