Praxis, TOEFL, etc.
Earlier this year, one of the questions of the week was to let me know what you'd like to see added to the EBSL website.  Alan suggested a list of the popular materials that are commonly asked for but are difficult to find other than at the desk - TOEFL, GRE, etc (books that we have older copies of that circulate.)  I've finally had time to put together a database of them.  I will add it to the EBSL page once I get trained in the new CMS next month.  In the meantime, there's a notebook at the desk (by the journal list) with a prinout.  Take a look!  Let me know if there's anything you'd like to see added and I'll update it.  The database contains titles, call numbers, location, and edition date.

Nothing special today. They're still working on the bricks outside of Paterno, so expect noise.  Also, the new public printer seems to be working just fine (knock on wood!)

The Maps Library will be closed until further notice.  This information came from Sally Kalin:

The new shelving along the south wall of the Maps Library collapsed during the night, spilling hundred of books all over the floor. The Maps cabinets broke some of the fall; I can't tell if they were damaged. We are so fortunate that no one was hurt.

Hillary notified me this morning of what happened. We have closed the Maps Library, locked the doors, and notified OPP. I told the staff at Lending not to touch anything because I'd like for OPP and Facilities to see the damage in its natural state.

I don't have any background in construction, but I was taken back when I saw the small screws that were used to attach the shelving to the wall . I've used larger and more powerful screws/bolts to hang potted plants.

Ron (you have a message from me on your answering service), I presume that OPP will check the other wall shelving to ensure that it is secure?

Steven gave me a copy of the Knowlege Commons Timeline.  It's interesting - I'll put a copy in your mailboxes.  Let's see how accurate it turns out to be.
