The Great Reference Book Migration

Credit goes to Dorothy Mays for the title of this post. The reference shelves will be dismantled on Monday 4/30. It will get kinda noisy in here — sorry.

We have begun moving the reference books downstairs. The A’s and most of the B’s are already downstairs, so if you get confused looking for a reference book, staff are prepared to take you downstairs and show you where they are.

In an interesting twist on 21st Century librarianship we were unable to sell the shelving to another library, but only for their scrap metal value. It seems a lot of libraries are removing shelving at the moment.

  1. This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
    own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented
    it. Too cool!

  2. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and
    sources back to your weblog? My website is in the exact same niche as yours and my visitors would truly benefit
    from some of the information you present here.

    Please let me know if this okay with you. Thanks a lot!

  3. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to
    tell someone!

  4. I hardly comment, but i did a few searching and wound up here The Great
    Reference Book Migration | Olin Library Renovations.
    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it only me or does it give the impression like some of these comments
    appear like written by brain dead visitors? 😛 And,
    if you are posting at other social sites, I’d like to keep up with anything fresh you have to
    post. Could you list of all of your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
