More Space and Improved Wireless

Renovations at Dana Library have made more room for quiet study. The back corner of the Library near the small study rooms now has additional carrels. While the carrels do not have network jacks, they are wired, however. An additional wireless router has been added in that area to boost connectivity to the carrels and surrounding area. This space was created by condensing Dana’s print and audiovisual collections. Some older titles were discarded and some moved off site.

Free Delivery of Print Journal Articles to UVM-FAHC Community

As a pilot project during the 2011/2012 academic year, Dana Library staff in Document Delivery will locate, scan and send materials from Dana’s print collections free of charge. In past years, the charge was $5 per article for staff to pull, scan and send journal articles from the shelf.

Please note: this free service is not offered if the item is also available as a UVM subscribed electronic journal. If you are having difficulty locating an article that is available online, we are more than happy to help. Contact Reference at 656-2201 or danaref@uvm.edu.

Reserve Items May Leave the Library

Dana Library now allows reserve items to leave the library. Patrons may borrow a reserve book for 2 hours, as always, but now may take the book out of the library during the day. Patrons may also borrow one reserve book overnight. Patrons may take the book within 2 hours of closing, no sooner, with the item due back within 30 minutes of opening.

Please contact Access Services if you have any questions: 656-2200.
