What's new at the libraries

Summer is over and many changes have taken place. What's new you ask? Read on to find out...


New look for the Libraries web site and Blais, the online catalog
Both the Libraries web site (libraries.claremont.edu) and Blais (blais.claremont.edu) have been redesigned. We hope you'll like the new look and be able to find the resources you're looking for more easily than before. We'd like to hear your comments and suggestions.

New Services Desk combines reference, information, circulation, and reserves
Whether you want to check out a book (including LINK+ and ILL), ask where Special Collections is located, get help with your research, or have any other question, stop at the Services Desk and ASK US!

New support for data services
The Libraries now have a librarian whose main focus is helping you find and work with statistics and data. Sheree Fu joined the Libraries staff recently as our Data Services Librarian.

New screening room for groups to view videos and DVDs
One of Honnold/Mudd's classrooms will soon be equipped to allow groups to view videos and DVDs. When it's not being used for library classes, you'll be able to reserve Keck 2, on the third floor, Mudd side, to view videos or even practice your upcoming class or conference presentation.

New TV in Honnold/Mudd's South Lounge
The South Lounge, first floor, Honnold side, where you will find vending machines, a public phone, and a place to study or just relax, now has a television. You can view a video or DVD there, or just watch something on cable TV.

New locations for some library collections
Over the summer, books with call numbers starting with the letter J moved to the first floor, Mudd side. During this year, other collections in Honnold/Mudd may shift. If you can't find what you're looking for, be sure to ASK US at the Services Desk.

Use Claremont Cash to print from library computers
In the Libraries, Claremont Cash is now used to pay for printing from library computers. You can add to your Claremont Cash account in the Copy Center in Honnold/Mudd Library. (Copy cards are still used in the self-service photocopy machines.)

CCDL (Claremont Colleges Digital Library)
The CCDL provides access to digitized collections developed at The Claremont Colleges. The existing collections are growing and new and exciting collections will be added this year. Visit often at ccdl.libraries.clarmeont.edu.

GIS (Geographic Information Systems)
GIS is a tool for visualizing and analyzing data geographically. Support for GIS is located in the Digital Services offices in Honnold/Mudd Library, second floor, Honnold side. Visit the Libraries' GIS site on the web to learn more and register for GIS workshops. You'll find the site at gisinfo.libraries.claremont.edu.
