Sept. 18, 2008 – Since the Circulation Desk moved to the second floor, we have recognized that immediate assistance in the microforms area that used to be next to the desk was lacking. A phone has now been installed near the microform reader/printers that connects directly to the Business, Humanities and Social Sciences (BHSS) Reference Desk on the second floor. Anyone needing assistance in the microforms area is encouraged to pick up the phone and ask for help. Someone can come down to microforms and give assistance with finding materials or with the reader/printer machines.
Sometimes reference staff will need to leave the desk to assist patrons in the stacks. If no one answers the phone, please leave a message or call back in a couple of minutes. The BHSS reference desk is staffed all times Newman Library is open, so help should be only minutes away.
We also have a number of handouts on microform collections that can be very helpful guides to these materials. You can also contact your college librarian for in depth assistance with these materials.
