What’s New and Changing at the Library

Library NewsWHAT HAS CHANGED?

Most of the books that were selected to be moved to the Library Annex have been moved. Hundreds of thousands of books that are staying in the Library are here but ALMOST ALL of them are in new locations. Very few items are where they used to be!  We will have a large map in the Lobby showing new locations later this week. For now please ask staff how to locate items.

Eventually there will be a twice daily courier service between the Library Annex and the Library and (2) there will be a scanning service for journal articles for TCU students, faculty and staff. We are still ramping up our operational capabilities at the Library Annex. To request books or journals from the Annex for the balance of the semester, the following instructions are important.

When you search for a particular volume in the library’s database, you will see the following statement after each title that is located in the Annex:

Remote Stacks (Library Annex)
Detailed Holdings / Retrieval Requests

By clicking on the link, you will place a request for a volume to be retrieved from the Annex. You will see the following message:
Items you’ve requested will appear on your “Check Hold Requests” list under My Account. The request will not be active unless the Request button is clicked.

Please request your item online and it will be brought to the Library within 24 hours. For now, we are bringing back all requested materials, books and journals. Items will be available from the Library’s Circulation Service Desk located in the lobby. The loan period for items remains unchanged.

WHAT HAS NOT CHANGED?

Library hours continue as usual. The Library opens at noon Sundays and stays open continuously until Friday nights at 8 p.m.  Saturday hours remain the same, 9:00 a.m. to 8 p.m.  EXAM WEEK HOURS ARE UNCHANGED
