Education Library Reorganization Spring/Summer 2017

Posted by: gscalese on 2017-05-29Blog Tags:
Thank you for your patience while we are moving collections and building/rebuilding shelves in the Education Library. With assistance from the Paterson Library staff, we are progressing well with our new layout. The Education Library will be open during our reorganization and we will continue to provide library access and service for the Spring/Summer 2017 Education programming. Here is our timeline and plan for the reorganization:

Weeding - Social Work

Posted by: kkeiller on 2017-05-25 Blog Tags: Weeding Project

We have identified more books for weeding. All of the titles have been reviewed by faculty in Social Work. Also, the circulation statistics column is data going back about 20 years (in other words, material has not circulated in 20 years). If you see anything that you feel should be put back on the shelves, please contact Deneen Dutchak (ddutchak@lakeheadu.ca) before June 9th, 2017.
