Doe Library's Brown Gallery is now showcasing a new exhibit, titled "Birds Do It, Bees Do It: A Century of Sex (Mis)Education in the USA." Drop by to check out this fascinating array of materials, and visit the online exhibit too!
The UC Berkeley Interlibrary Services Department is now partnering with peer international institutions such as University of Edinburgh and Munich's Bayerische Staatsbibliothek to share library resources. This pilot program, available to support the research needs of faculty and graduate students, expands the service beyond the photocopies that were available previously. Patrons can submit their requests using the Request button in Melvyl. The pilot program, which is free, will last through the summer of 2015.
Questions? Phone the Interlibrary Service Department at (510) 642-7365.
Doe Library will offer four more hours every Friday during fall and spring semesters. Instead of closing at 5 pm on Fridays as before, Doe will now be open until 9 pm, beginning August 29. We hope library users enjoy this increased access.
You can now request that books and other library materials from 25 campus libraries be delivered to any of those libraries. Just use the Berkeley OskiCat catalog to find the circulating item you'd like, click on the yellow Request button near the top of the screen and enter your CalNet ID and password. Finally, select your favorite library to have the item delivered to. It will arrive within three business days; in most cases sooner. Imagine requesting books from the Bioscience & Natural Resources Library, Earth Sciences & Map Library, MAIN Stacks, and Anthropology Library from the comfort of your home and having them all sent to the Environmental Design Library where you can pick them up on your way to class the next morning.
Online paging -- another way the Library is helping you access the materials you need in a timely and efficient manner.
The summer 2014 issue of Fiat Lux, the Library's newsletter, is now available online. You will find in it a story about students hacking the Free Speech Movement Archive, along with updates on the FSM's 50th anniversary, the new Authors Alliance, and the 2014 crop of Library Prize winners. Enjoy!
