is a periodic Web newsletter by the University Librarian, Karin Borei. The intended audience for the newsletter is Millikin University students, faculty, and staff, as well as anyone else who uses Staley Library for research and information. We hope that you find each one useful as well as interesting.
I am in the process now of documenting the many new things we have been putting in place in the library (physical as well as virtual) over the summer. Here's a taste:
We are creating web lists of our periodicals subscriptions by academic disciplines. Some of these lists are done, and you can sample them here. Jennifer Masciadrelli, one of our new Research/Instruction Librarians, is continuing the work of producing these.
We have initiated (beginning with June 2001) placing our monthly New Acquisitions lists on our web site, and you can find those here. Marsha Leach, Office Manager and Acquisitions Associate, will be producing these web lists throughout the year.
We have new staff members whom you can meet here. You can also see us all having a good time together.
Below are some "before" pictures.
"After" pictures would show a consolidated music area on the third floor, an impressive new archives room, a display area for student art, five replaced and one additional library research computer stations and two additional workstations for campus e-mail, and various study seating and shelving improvements throughout the building.
The music area and the archives room are largely the work of Susan Avery, University Archivist as well as Library Instruction Coordinator, and Jason Butterick, Archival Associate, while the shifting in the stacks was supervised by Gavena Dahlman, Circulation Associate (Evening).
