Most of the ordering for monographs is done through Yankee Book Peddler (YBP). They use an online ordering format, GOBI, based on unique “profiles.” Each department has an adjustable profile of the new books which are closely related to its field. For example, the chemistry faculty get all of the books that begin with the call number QD. Every two weeks and email of new books is sent to each faculty member, who may then recommend any or all books to be add to the collection. These profiles may be edited for an individuals specific area of interest. Contact the science librarian to change the email parameters.
Watch a brief 2 minute video to see how to use GOBI.
Every two (2) weeks you receive an email from DoNotReply@ybp.com
Faculty may borrow most COW books for 1 academic year with multiple renewals. See complete list of loan periods. Faculty spouses/partners and dependent children may request courtesy patron accounts at any circulation desk. See a complete list of loan periods for courtesy patrons.
If you have a student research assistant(s) who would benefit from advanced database searching, please have him/her/them schedule a research consultation with Jessica Clemons. Have them include:
Phone numbers and contact information for librarians who are liaisons to departments and programs (librarian liaisons list). Liaisons to academic departments tailor library instruction classes to fit students needs, help with collection development, share information about new library resources and news, and generally help with or refer you for any questions you may have about the library and its services.
Each department has a liaison to the library. This person serves as a contact point to the department on behalf of the library. They receive collection development information, news, and other communication then forward it to the department. The departmental liaison to the library sends the librarian book requests on behalf of the department, curriculum changes, and other information so the library can respond to needs.
The science librarian encourages faculty to bring students into the library for library instruction classes. Some ideas for library instruction include:
The collection is continuously being evaluated for currency, relevancy, and appropriateness. As the science librarian evaluates monographs she will nominate some titles to be removed. Liaisons to the library will be contacted to review the nominated titles and elect to keep any title they feel are important to our collection. The remaining monographs will be removed from the collection.
The Media Library in Andrews Library has many DVDs and video cassettes available for our community.
