Librarians offer one-hour drop-in sessions for students who
want a little extra special attention. The content in these
"potluck" sessions depends entirely on questions from
students who attend. In one session we may cover basics, like
how to get a library card, in another we might show students
how to use subject indexes. Drop-in sessions are not intended
to replace our regular library
instruction sessions, so you may still contact Joan
Carey, Roxanne Dimyan,
or Kitty Mackey to discuss
specific needs for your classes.

B-a-a-a-a-ck! Cannell Library by the Numbers!
You loved it before, so
we did it again! Here for your enjoyment, a cavalcade of ciphers
and figures, exactingly calculated by our luminary numerary statistician,
Marge Noverrar. Numbers so powerful they make Roman Numerals cower
in fear. Decimals that Dewey never dreamed of. Enter if you dare!
(2) too confusin'! Not just two Susans,
not just two Susan
H's... but two Susan Har's! You have to go all
the way to the fourth
letter to distinguish Susan Harvey, Administrative
Assistant (x2329), from Susan Harding, Library
Technician III (x2255).
(4) lonely DVDs have joined Cannell Library's collection
of 2,097 videos.
Like videos, they may be scheduled
by faculty for classroom use (contact Krista Reichard, x2553).
When our new DVD player arrives, they'll be available for viewing
in the library.

Yep, $17.50 is the average cost of borrowing a book
using Interlibrary Loan, according to a December
2003 Report from the Association of Research Libraries.
Cannell Library provides this service free of charge (in most
cases) to Clark College students, faculty and staff.
items have been processed by Technical Services staff
(you'd be surprised how many things have to be done!) and added
to the collection this quarter.
That's how many times Media staff set up LCD projectors in classrooms
for instructional support during 2002-2003. Media also permanently
installed 17 LCD video/data projectors in classrooms
in the last year. Many of these multi-media systems incorporate
full audio capabilities and support both VHS and DVD video formats
as well. Media is currently working on several more of these systems
to accommodate demand.
shiny brand-new Cannell Library cards were issued
during Fall Quarter. Of these, 2,458 went to Clark students,
24 to Clark staff, 87 to Clark faculty, 76 to community patrons,
and 6 to WSU-V students. Cannell Library began issuing it's own
cards after converting to the Innovative Interfaces online library
catalog at the beginning of Fall Quarter 2003.
miles - that is how far out in space our satellite antenna
receives signals from geosynchronous satellites in orbit above
our fair planet. Coincidentally, this stationary orbit region
of space is known as the "Clarke Belt", named after
science fiction author, Arthur C. Clarke, who first dreamed of
such things way back in 1945.
books live in the Cannell Library collection. But these
books don't just sit on the shelves! During the 2002-2003 school
year the library circulated 53,022 items.
"hits" to the library's web pages were logged
during Fall Quarter -- 35% of those were from off-campus users.
And FYI, Fall 2003's "hits" increased 46% over hits logged
during Winter Quarter 2002.
people entered Cannell Library during the 2002-2003 academic
year (not all at the same time!). At any time of the day you'll
find students reading books, browsing periodicals, working on
presentations, writing on white boards in the group study rooms,
watching videos, working on computers, studying quietly, napping
between classes... well, you get the idea!

with the content. We hope you enjoy it, too!
