Among the additions to electronic resources over the last month are:
--GeoData@UC Berkeley: The Library's geoportal to geospatial data
--Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia: did you know it's pronounced kind of like "chimmix"?

Thanks to this new service, Library users are now able to return most circulating materials to any library location, and are no longer required to walk each item back to the owning library. Exceptions to Universal Return include the following:
--interlibrary loan materials must be returned to ILL in Doe 133
--non-book items such as maps, music scores, and media must be returned to owning library
--Law Library items must be returned there.
This long-desired Universal Return service should simplify returns for library users. Read more
