Do You Need to Place Items on reserve for Summer Quarter?

Even though the Library will be closed June 15 through June 24, staff are still available to process your reserve requests. Reserve items submitted during the break, before June 21, will be ready for student use when classes begin on the 25th. Items submitted after June 21 may not be available to students until three business days after submission. Avoid the rush and get items in early!

Useful Links:

Audiotape Duplication Service

The overnight, pay-per-tape audiotape duplication service that was provided by Media has been discontinued due to lack of student interest. However, we still have two self-service duplication machines available at the circulation desk, where students may copy audiotapes which faculty have placed on reserve. Students must provide their own tapes, available for purchase at the bookstore. Duplication is free, and it only takes a few minutes to copy one tape.

Web Sites Worth a Look: Summer Travel

The World Clock - Time Zones   Let's see, if it's 3 am in Vancouver, then it must be 7 pm in Japan … no wait, that's 5 hours plus 6 hours minus 1 hour for daylight savings … No, wait, TWO hours for daylight … Forget it! Just go to this web site and check the time so you don't wake up your favorite friend across the globe in the middle of the night!

Firstgov.gov: Recreation and Travel  Traveling with your pets? Wondering about Foot and Mouth Disease? Need to know the tide schedule? Want quick links to National Parks, Aviation Safety, Boaters Safety -- Whew! If it's about travel, it's probably here.
