What’s New? Help Desk Relocated to First Floor, Coffee Machine, and More!

By Beth Bohstedt and Lisa Forrest

Welcome back!  We hope you had a great summer.  When you visit Burke Library again, you’ll notice a few changes we made to the physical space.

Here are just a few highlights:

The Help Desk has moved.
We have really good news. The trek to the IT Help Desk (formerly located on the 3rd floor of the library) is OVER! The Help Desk is now located on the first floor, right next to the Circulation and Reserves Desk, which shifted slightly in order to accommodate their new neighbors. The Help Desk is set up on temporary tables right now, but will have permanent furniture by the end of September.  Whether you need assistance with computing issues, multimedia presentations, or library research, stop by the first floor desk and say hello!

New furniture coming soon
Remember the chair samples and fabric swatches we showcased in the library last spring? Thanks so much for all of your feedback in helping us select new furniture for the Library Commons area! We’re thrilled to report that we will soon be receiving new seating, tables, and lamps.  Estimated time of arrival is late October. We’ll keep you posted (and yes, we know it's been a long time coming). 

Did someone say *coffee*?
You asked and we listened. We’re happy to announce the addition of a new coffee vending machine in our All Night Reading Room. 

Looking for a late night place to study?
The library is open from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. Monday -Thursday, Friday 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m., Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. - 2:00 a.m.  Our All Night Reading Room is available for use around the clock!  Need research assistance after hours?  Ask a librarian through our 24/7 Chat Service.

If you have questions about any of the above information, please contact Beth Bohstedt.  See you soon!.
