Starting Wednesday 10/3/12 You will log in after identifying your course and selecting an electronic Reserve to view. (Previously you had to log in before selecting the course.) You should still be able to remain logged in and view several Reserve items without having to log in each time. As always, books and videos on reserve for your course can be picked up at the Circulation desk.

I left my ‘cart’ in San Francisco
The “I left my ‘cart’ in San Francisco” Cable Car[t] created by the Student assistants (with a little help from their staff friends) in the Access Services Department of Gleeson Library won 1st prize in the 2010 “Unshelved: Pimp my Bookcart” contest.
The Judges commented: “This year’s first prize was an easy choice for both judges. We passed on the opportunity for our yearly fistfight and settled on this fabulous cable car lookalike. The fit and finish on this one is spectacular, including the signage and the bronzed desk bell on top.”
Come in and view the “I left my ‘cart’ in San Francisco” Cable car[t] on display in the Gleeson lobby.
