Welcome, new students and faculty, and welcome back to those of you who'd been away for the summer! We are pleased to welcome two new colleagues to the library's staff as well. Charlie Conway, a Music major and President of the Philosophy Club, is our new Public Services Assistant. You'll find him on duty at the Ask Here desk in the evenings. Gloria Beasley, an Art major, is our new Circulation Manager. She starts her job on Monday, August 27. Talk about jumping into the deep end!

If you've followed this blog over the summer, you know we have added JSTOR to our list of databases. JSTOR provides online access to the complete runs of 119 distinguished scholarly journals in the arts and sciences. We added this service in response to your comments on last spring's LibQual+ survey.

Sometime this fall, we'll be replacing all the computers on the main floor of the library with new machines. Again, we are doing this because we had so many comments about our dated equipment on the LibQual+ survey.

We have some great new books in the Browsing Collection and some wonderful films on DVD. Stop by and have a look. We're looking forward to working with you this year.
