#SHU_Libraries Bigger and Better for 2020!
Welcome back! There are many changes for Walsh Library patrons to improve your experience.
New Furniture in the Information Commons (IC) and Silent Study Room
Over the break we rearranged and added new furniture to the IC and Silent Study room. There are smaller whiteboard tables for group work in the IC and smaller groupings of soft seating. We also created reading and group areas between the reference and curriculum collection. We added more tables to the Silent Study, large and small, in case you like to spread out and silently study! Take a look:
We’ve added a new display area for student selections, between the reference and curriculum collection. It currently features poetry highlights from our collection. These selections are based on a theme and will change monthly, so keep checking back. Patrons are able to check out books that are on display. Take a look:
Not as visible but with a big impact are the changes to Loan Periods we implemented over winter break. Below are some of the notable changes:
- EZBorrow books are now available for checkout for 112 days (16 weeks!) no renewal
- Undergraduates can check out SHU material for 112 days, no renewal
- Graduate Students and Employees get material for 365 days, no renewal
- Faculty are 365 days (same loan period), 2 renewals
We wanted to make sure that all patrons were able to take full advantage of resources they need to succeed at Seton Hall.
