Everyone is at their stations, ready to roll

Posted by isulib on September 16, 2010

The Reference/Instruction Tables: FUSION, FUSIONPLUS, NEW LIBRARY HOMEPAGE, ENDNOTE, LIBGUIDES are lined up on either side of the PATH TO THE PIZZA!  You can’t miss us – and, you don’t want to! Unfortunately, I can smell the popcorn from the other side of the floor.

Meanwhile, for many students, it’s just another day at the 1st floor photocopier, as they wait for their papers to come forth from the queue so that they can go on to class.
