Central Libraries Change and Rearrange to Improve Services

Every summer, the Central Libraries make changes to prepare for the forthcoming academic year. The twin goals of improving services and utilizing staff more efficiently were the motivation for this summer's significant changes. Some collections are in new locations and some service points merged.

Collections that have moved:

• General collection books with a "Z" call number have moved to the Garden Level of Moody Library.

• Government documents have moved to the 1st floor of Jones Library.

• Government document reference materials and most science and engineering reference materials have been integrated into the general reference collection on the 1st floor of Jones Library.

• Recent science and engineering periodicals are now shelved with earlier, bound volumes in the compact shelving on the 2nd floor of Jones Library.

• The Zeta Children and Young Adult Collection has moved to the Garden Level of Moody Library.

Services that have moved:

• Government documents, science, engineering, social science and humanities reference services have been combined into one Information Desk on the 1st floor of Jones Library. All reference personnel are now housed together in offices on the 1st floor of Jones Library.

• Organizationally, Interlibrary Services has merged with Circulation Services to form the Access Services Unit. In-person help with interlibrary service issues can now be found at the Main Circulation Desk on the 1st floor of Moody Library.

• Library Advancement and Special Projects moved to the 2nd floor of Jones Library.
