Library Literacy 101: Recall it!

Grunge rubber stamp with text Recall,vector illustration

Is the book you want checked out? Recall it! Library materials may be Recalled in CatQuest, the UVM Libraries catalog. A Recall differs from a traditional Hold request, in that the item being recalled is unable to be renewed by the current user. They get a notification that someone else wants to use the item and you are notified when the item is returned to the library.

In CatQuest:
• Click on the Recall / Hold link under the item you wish to recall
Recall – you will get a notice when the item is returned. It may not be renewed by the current user
Hold – you will get a notice when the item is returned, (current user can renew it)
• Select copy, location & not needed after date to finish your request
.
Call 656-2200 or ask at the Main Desk for more information, or for help with your first Recall.

New Study Space Available

The Dana Medical Library has responded to your feedback for more study space with natural light! Since we cannot easily move walls, put in skylights and make new windows, we have removed 4 computers from the front computer area so that there is more space for study next to the windows. There are Ethernet cables to hook up your laptop so don’t hesitate to spread out and get some work done!

Additionally, we have replaced 2 soft arm chairs with a round table with chairs at the front. Enjoy the variety of seating in the natural light and happy studying!

Questions? Contact Lesley Boucher at 656-4404.

Staff Art on Display

Kristin and her art 004 (2)

Kristin Florian, of Dana Medical Library’s Collections and Acquisitions Department, has artwork  in the 5th Annual Staff Art Show.  Through September 30th, Kristin is showing 2 lithograph prints in the Livak Fireplace Lounge and Gallery, Davis Center, 4th floor.

Here are Kristin’s thoughts on her art and process:

I enjoy drawing, and see printmaking as a way of adding color to a drawing. I like the process of simplifying color choices and planning ahead, but still being surprised at the end of the process. My favorite subjects are: surrealism or magical realism in nature, landscapes on a larger scale, and visualizing passages from books.

I first make a drawing. I then transfer the image backwards onto a linoleum block. Next, I cut the areas I want to be white (or another color) out of the linoleum block. To print, I roll the paint onto the block using a brayer, register the paper on the block, and rub the back of the print. I let it dry, cut the next layer and repeat the process until it is done.

Stop by and check out her work!
