Reminder–Returning Textbooks

Standard

As the semester winds down, please be mindful that the Library CAN NOT take any rental books back which were rented from the Bookstore! Those books need to be brought back to the Bookstore, to clear your account so you won’t be charged replacement fees. The Library isn’t responsible for your Bookstore rentals which are left with us.

We don’t want to leave you hanging! Remember to return where you got them. Thanks!

Return library items now to get your diploma

Standard

If you have any outstanding items on your account – from books to phone chargers to dry erase markers – you will be “billed and blocked”  from getting your actual diploma if you’re a graduate and/or your final grades for the semester. DO NOT WAIT until  May 17 – May 19 to clear this up, as the closer to Graduation / end of the semester the longer it will take to go through all proper channels to take the block off. It won’t be an immediate remedy, so PLEASE check your bookbags, dorm rooms, cars, etc and bring everything back to the library ASAP. Clear your account today!  

Please be mindful of Study Room Reservations during Exam Week!

Standard

Exam week is always the busiest week for our Library Study Rooms, and many patrons have them reserved in advance. If you go into a study room which appears to be empty, and you did not reserve that room, please remember a study group may show up and ask you to leave as they have the room reserved – and you must cooperate and find another place to study.  We thank you in advance for your understanding in this matter!

Study Room AV Updates April 30-May 4, 2018

Standard

Study Rooms in Bello Center: April 30-May 4, 2018

We are upgrading the wireless monitor system in the study rooms this week, during normal business hours (8:30-4:30).  We will do our best to have as many rooms open and available during this time, however, rooms cannot be booked by students until after 4:30pm each day.  Evening study room operations will continue normally and rooms can be booked.

As the technicians replace the monitors, it is possible your group may be asked to relocate to another room or area of the library to complete this project in a timely fashion.  We are excited about this project as the monitors have become an issue and this will allow you all to have dependable equipment in the rooms for finals and when you return in the fall!

If anyone has questions or concerns please speak to Laura Kohl, Director of Library Services: lkohl@bryant.edu or 401-232-6298

We appreciate your cooperation and patience during the upgrade!

Last chance to request books from other libraries if you need them this semester!

Standard

PLAN AHEAD! If you need any books from another college or public library, NOW is the time to order them! Some of these requests can take up to two weeks (14 days) to arrive here, so plan ahead if you have a report due, or need the items to study for exams. The longer you wait, the slimmer your chances of receiving the items on time. Please fill out an ILL request for all items needed from other libraries, or call us at 232-6125 for assistance.

We cannot order e-books from other libraries due to copyright restrictions, so make sure you’re requesting the print book format (or ask a librarian for help)!

*Articles usually take sooner to be delivered, so you still have time to order those.

Now is the time to start reserving Study Rooms for EXAM weeks!

Standard

FYI: You may want to book your Study Room in the Library  NOW, before all the rooms and most popular times are taken for Exam weeks.  It’s easy to do – you can reserve on the iPad in the Library near the Circ Desk, or do it on your own computer – just check out the Study Room Reservations link on the front of the library homepage and follow the EZ directions. Just remember the Rule of  “3” – at least 3 people need to be in your study group to reserve a room! White Boards and other amenities are available in most rooms.

Oprah’s newest Book Club Choice!

Standard

We have it…the first Oprah’s Book Club choice for 2018: AN AMERICAN MARRIAGE by award winning author Tayari Jones. What made Oprah want to share this novel with her Book Club members? Says Oprah, “After the first few chapters, as I got to know Roy and Celestial and Andre, I forgot they were fictional characters. I found myself in that zone readers yearn for: I wanted to cancel all my plans and curl up with my new friends. ”  No doubt, a book you won’t want to put down this Spring season!
