While the Library building will remain open during the Thanksgiving holiday, the Service Desk will have reduced hours.
The Service Desk will close at 11:00pm on Wednesday, November 23rd. Please plan in advance if you’d like to borrow reserves, DVDs, equipment, or pick up holds or ILLs before break!
The Service Desk, Reserve/AV Room, and Plan Room will reopen at 6:30pm on Sunday, November 28th. Regular hours will resume at that time.
The last day to request books or A/V materials via Interlibrary Loan this semester is Monday, December 1st. (You can keep requesting articles.)
Remember that even when you’re away from the library, you still have access to over 125,000 academic ebooks, 40,000 online journals, and dozens of research databases, all searchable from one place! When you use library resources off campus, if you’re prompted to log in, just use your Marlboro username and password.
Have a wonderful break!
David Pierce, a Marlboro College student whose tragic death in 2003 deeply impacted our community, is remembered each Fall. Many on campus still have fond memories of David, and a bench and apple tree outside of the Library commemorate his life and time at Marlboro. Additionally, David’s family established a fund for the Library to purchase items that are not necessarily for academic purposes, but rather for fun. Think graphic novels, current popular fiction, movies, TV series, etc. Each year, the Library buys a few more items using the fund established in his memory.
This year, we are asking for your help in choosing what to buy!
Between now and midnight on Friday, 11/4, email firstname.lastname@example.org (or call, or stop by, or comment below…) with the titles of any movies, books, graphic novels, or other items you’d like the Library to add. Remember: fun, not work (though the two aren’t always mutually exclusive!).
We’ll make a list of all your suggestions, then put them to a vote. Students will be emailed a link to a survey; voting will be open through the end of the day on Wednesday, November 9th. When voting is over, we’ll rank the selections, start buying with the top vote-getter, and continue down the list as far as we can.
In the meantime, stop by the Library to see some of the items that have been bought with David’s fund in past years. They’re currently on display on the ground floor, across from the Service Desk.
