What’s In a Name?
October 06, 2016
You’ve probably noticed by now that the Reference Desk has disappeared from the library. But where are the reference librarians? Reference Librarians are now available to answer all of your questions at the area formerly known as the Circulation Desk. Confused yet? Don’t be.
The Library Desk is the area formerly known as the Circulation Desk, and librarians and student assistants are available to answer all of your reference or circulation-related questions. Need to check out an item from the Reserve collection? Just ask anyone behind the Library Desk, we are here to help! The reference librarians are now sitting at the area we’ve dubbed the Reference Corner.
So what should you call the area formerly known as the Reference area, or the area behind the Reference Desk? The Library Commons. The Library Commons is a great place to study with your friends as we encourage collaboration (and noise!) in that space.
Questions? Just ask any of us behind the Library Desk.
