Welcome Back!

We hope that you had a nice winter break. You may notice a change or two in the library. The shift of the quartos (the coffee table sized books) has been completed.
From now on, you'll be looking for the quartos on the second floor (see map below) and not on the third floor.
It will look like this in the catalog:
Location: Main Collection, Quarto Section -- 2nd Floor

Enjoy the snow!
