Remembering Toni Olshan
Friends, family and colleagues of Toni Olshan are invited to a reception in her honor at the Herrick Library Book End Lounge on Friday, August 26th, from 4-5:30 pm. It will be an opportunity to get together to remember and savor the gracious and encouraging life of a wonderful friend to us all. There won’t be a formal program, just bring a favorite story or remembrance to share. Light refreshments will be served.
Allow more time for AU Interlibrary Loans
Scholes Library’s Interlibrary Loan (ILL) assistant will be retiring July 28th. There are plans to cover Scholes Library ILL with staff from Herrick Library until a replacement is hired. However, our quick response time, of which we are justly proud, will necessarily be somewhat slower. So if you are planning to submit ILL requests, for either library, please send them in a little sooner. As always, we want to get you what you need, but we will be operating shorthanded for a while. In addition, during this time, Document Delivery will be suspended. Articles available from the Scholes Library print collection will need to be retrieved by the library user. Stephen S. Crandall Dean of Alfred University Libraries and Director, Herrick Library Alfred University, 1 Saxon Drive, Alfred, NY 14802 607-871-2987 (office) - 607-382-6229 (cell)
