1. Loan period changes: after consultation with students and faculty including the University Senate Library Committee, the CEU Library’s regular loan period is now 30 days for all books and working papers. See further details. The Library will monitor the situation closely and adjust if necessary. Please continue to be courteous if someone recalls a book from you: the Library’s good service depends on it.
2. The Library’s Accessibility guidelines for library patrons have been added to our website.
3. Blinken OSA catalog records have been integrated into the CEU Library Catalog to facilitate access to OSA’s fine collections of serials (over 6,000 including small circulation regional publications), reference books (about 6,000), and films (over 4,000).
4. New database resources of note can be found on the Library website Databases A-Z listing as usual. Most recent include: Cross-National Time-Series Data Archive, The Economist Historical Archive, Lexikon des Mittelalters online (LexMA) and International Encyclopaedia for the Middle Ages (IEMA) online, Women and Social Movements in Modern Empires Since 1820.
5. When will the 6th floor Library entrance open to provide easy access to Nador 13 and the Roof Garden? A door separating the reading room from the exit area is being constructed soon, and then some other technical, policy, and staffing issues have to be addressed.
6. Redevelopment in Phase 2: the Library still occupies 2 large spaces for stack areas in the Faculty Tower lower level, where about 90,000 volumes are shelved. Modest renovations are planned for these areas and shifting of collections.
7. Stay tuned for an “online stack request” form that the Library plans on implementing by the end of this year.
