This e-only issue of ISS leads with the a wide variety of building changes that have happened over the summer. Check out information on the new merged services (circulation/reference) desk on Level 2, a new location for Inter-Library Loan & some software changes for Reserves Direct. The latest on the library's storage project is also included. Tab 1.
Tab 2, Scholarly Communications, includes the latest on the federal government and open access. How has the new NIH policy impacted what is freely available and what other changes are coming. If you missed attorney Lisa Macklin, Director of Library's Information Property Rights Office, February talk on Copyright Trends and Their Implications for the Classroom, find out how you can still hear it.
Have you noticed the new library blog? It's intended to keep you up-to-date on library events, services and resources and appears regularly on the main library website or you could subscribe and get your own feed. Find out more about it and several EUCLID changes in Tab 3.
Tab 4 features numerous new electronic resources purchased since the last issue including important e-book and video collections. SimplyMap is a resource acquired by the Goizueta Business Library that could prove useful to social scientists as well. Also check out useful library research guides at Tab 5.
Building Updates (Tab 6) previews additional new library exhibit space, now featuring "Africa's History in a Name" and the move of the Interlibrary Loan Office (ILL). Also of interest is a new photographic exhibit on the destruction in Haiti. This exhibit is located next to the ECIT offices (Woodruff, Room 217).
If you have library-related instructional needs or suggestions for the collection, check out "How to.." at Tab 7.
Finally, we feature a list of continuing staff who support social science departments in the library and ECCS. We are sad to announce that Ida Martinez, who designed the electronic version of this newsletter and was the Librarian for Psychology & Educational Studies is no longer at Emory. We will certainly miss Ida. A search for her replacement has begun. Find names of staff currently handling her fields here. (Tab 8).
