Summer collection maintenance

This summer we will be transferring books into LASR to alleviate the overcrowding of shelves on the second floor of Case Geyer.   We will use the following criteria to choose which items to transfer to LASR.

  • Added to the collection more than  15 years ago
  • Total circulation of fewer than five times
  • No checkouts in the last ten years
  • Single-volume works only.

The transfer should have little impact on accessibility of materials, since faculty, students, and other users can request delivery to the Borrowing Services desk with the click of a mouse.

A book with an “in transit” status may be in the process of being transferred.  If a book you need is listed in the catalog as “in transit,” ask the staff at the Case Geyer Borrowing Services desk on level three to search for it.

LASR Maintenance 3/20 – 3/21

The ability to request materials from LASR will be intermittent Thursday and Friday (3/20 – 3/21) during maintenance. Users who get an error message when requesting a LASR item should repeat the request at a later time.
