Going Up! Or what to do when you can’t get to the books

January 7, 2010 at 3:04 pm 3 comments

As I hope all of our patrons know by now, we have had to put the majority of our print collection in storage for the duration of the Library’s renovation project. Our wonderful Circulation staff and student workers venture into the closed wing multiple times a day to pull your requests from the shelves and bring them to the Underground.

Last week, however, access to the building was completely blocked and we had to get creative. With some help from the construction crew, we were able to find a way to get to the books.
Who knew fullfilling patron requests would require heavy equipment and a hard hat?

Need a book? Go here to place a request and we will do whatever it takes to make sure you have what you need. Even if it means wearing a hard hat.

    I always knew your crew was dedicated and creative, but this takes the cake. Hang in there, it will all be worth it and just think of the stories you all can tell . . . back in the day we had to scale great heights to get information for our students . . .
