Open to Debate

The library has been fairly quiet over the summer, but that changes this week as the Summer Speech Institute students and coaches use the library to find ideas and texts to fuel debate. This, of course, is exactly what libraries are for and we're delighted to have a chance to help with this program.

Michelle Twait created a resource page for the program and several librarians will be on hand to help track down those hard-to-find quotes, facts, texts, and ideas.

Interlibrary Loan changes

Beginning August 1 the Library will be deleting any Interlibrary Loan records that have a terminal status (closed, canceled, expired or deleted). Purging them has many benefits, most importantly helping us protect your privacy.

If you use your ILL borrowing record to keep track of resources you’ve used, please take steps to copy and paste that information to a safe place. Your borrowing history will then be limited to active records – things you currently have checked out, are waiting for and/or have recently returned.

You can access your borrowing record from the Library's homepage or here:

After August 1, any ILL records with a terminal status will also be removed from the ILL Total Requests (eliminating that pesky message about exceeding your ILL limit!)
