Where did all the books go? Library in transition
Monday, Jan 11, 2010

With the start of Spring Term classes on Jan. 11, students on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus will use a different procedure to request books from the campus library.
From January to March of 2010, the library will be in transition as its 100,000-book collection and other services are moved to the library's new location in the Partnership Center. So between Jan. 11 and March 5, the library's book collection will operate under a "closed stacks" procedure, meaning the book collection is closed to the public.
The library staff will retrieve books from the closed stacks at set times during the day for pickup at the current (building L) library location.
Other facts to know about the Jan. 11-March 5 transition:
The library staff in the current location (building L) will provide circulation and reference assistance, Internet LINCC online catalog access, research computers, library research classes and InterLibrary Loan (ILL) services.
Students can reserve leisure books, current periodicals, laptops, audio-visual materials and study space in the L building location, and the CTS Open Lab will remain available.
With their activated College ID cards, students have access through the LINCC online catalog to full-text journal databases and 33,000 e-books. The Gale Literary Criticism Series is also available online now.
