When I type in "ASTM standards" the search engine does not return the most current version of the standards located on the 2nd floor of Newman. Why is that? I get all kinds of articles, papers, etc. It seems to me that the standards themselves should be on the list, at the top of the list really, and with the most current version listed first.
I am sorry for the confusion. You must have entered a keyword search for ASTM standards, that came up sorted by year of publication. If you do a title search for ASTM standards, in Addison, the first title that comes up is the one you want. The real title of the work by the way, is Annual book of ASTM standards. Please get back in touch, if you have any additional questions about searching in Addison.

Please consider updating the photocopy service area to allow students to make PDF files for themselves. (you can charge 5 cents a page or something reduced). It could be considered a significant step into the 21st century.
Currently there is a charge. We refer anyone who asks at the desk in the Torgersen Referencer Desk. We are anticipating getting updated new photopcopy equipment this summer that could be used for scanning However, we would have to have a computer connected to each machine capable of converting to PDF files. Also it requires ethernet connections. Bottom line, this adds to the cost of already dimishing revenue for the cost recovery of Photocopy services. The cost of computers and ethernet connections have always been the reason for not doing this in the past.
We will explore the feasibility of leasing one photocopy machine with that ability and find out how great the demand is and see if implementation of a full service can be supported.
Thank you for your suggestion.

I tried to renew a book and it came up as being on hold. I will be happy to return the book, but we just moved, and all my books are packed. I will return the book as soon as I can find it. We literally have three rooms of boxes floor to ceiling, and we are working our way through them. Thanks.
The book indeed has a hold on it and can not be renewed. Another faculty member has requested the book (probably needed as they prepare for the fall semester). The book should be returned as soon as possible to keep your account from being blocked as well as for the other patron's use. When the book is 30 days past due, your account will be blocked and a replacement fee will be charged to your account.
