New Library Website

The Falcone Library unveiled a new website design on August 7. One of the new features is that the website is “responsive” — that is, it adapts to what ever device you use to browse the web and accommodates screen sizes ranging from smartphones to large desktop displays. There is also an updated A-Z Databases interface that can be searched, browsed alphabetically, by subject, and by database type.

Let us know what you think. For more information, contact Tom Keays <keaysht@lemoyne.edu>

Library Website Update on August 7

Service OutageThe Library website will be upgraded and a new design unveiled on Monday, August 7. The site may not be available, beginning around 12 pm and continuing for up to 2 hours, while server infrastructure changes are put into place. Other Library services, including the Library catalog, Connect NY, Journal Finder, FAQ, and room booking, will be unaffected. The A-Z Database list will be unavailable, so we prepared a quick and dirty listing of library databases to use during the outage.

Library Renovation Closures: Week of June 12-20

There will be asbestos abatement occurring in the back part of the Library on both floors that will affect access to those areas. The main impact will be the temporary loss of access to the computer cluster on the first floor from Monday, June 12 through Friday, June 16 and access to bookstacks PR 4964 – QA 89 on the second floor from Tuesday, June 13 through Thursday, June 20. Since access to these areas will only be barred for a week, we are not able to relocate these items.

We plan to change the status of material located in bookstacks PR 4964 – QA 89 to “unavailable” during this time period so any patrons in need of those books can submit Connect NY requests for them instead. Once we have access to that collection again we will change the status back to “available.” As for the computer cluster, you will still be able to use the workstations at the front of the library across from the Library Services Desk.
