Shred Confidential Failed Printouts

A Library user recently made a request:

I am looking for the services of Paper Shredder.  As a matter of fact, some of the documents, after printing and/or photocopying inside the library, have personal information.  It is no[t] a good idea to put them into paper recycle bag.  Thus, I would like to ask whether it is possible for library to provide paper shredder.

Yes – let’s give this a try! We have repurposed a small paper shredder and made it available for you to use.

New and Improved Group Study Rooms

The Library is always working to improve services and facilities for your use.  Recently, we have been able to convert 3 more rooms into group studies!

Back in May, we added room LG4-02.  And this week we rolled out LG3-04 and LG3-08!  We still need to add some artwork to them, and the computer monitor in LG3-08 is a temporary one on the table – a proper 32″ wall-mounted monitor will be added later.

Building a Special Collections Gallery

LG4 Table Lights – You Have Control

The tables on LG4 at the bottom of the void – the ones with lights on them – have been modified.

The lights are now under your control, instead of being managed from the central switch box.

Each of those tables now has a light switch – so if you need a bit of extra light during the day, you can turn the light on.

Please remember to turn the light off when you leave – saving energy is a task for all of us, working together.
