As we plan for the future of our library, it is important that we understand our users' perceptions and expectations so that we can provide the services you need. On the first of October, you will receive an email providing you with a link to a library service quality survey. By responding to the survey, you will provide essential information for us to use in planning for the future. The survey is part of a North American effort led by the Association of Research Libraries to measure library service quality and identify best practices. We would greatly appreciate your help.

Post date: September 16, 2008There were a few books that did not make our display on "Understanding Our World After September 11." This was mostly due to space restrictions. I have decided to share some of those titles here with our readers in case they want some more things to read.

They are listed with their call numbers, but in no particular order. You can find these in the library's General Collection on the third floor :
