Ref Desk Web Browsers

Why does Chrome default to the PCC library stats?  They are open later and close earlier and have less traffic generally.  It annoys me every time I open LAC at 7 am.  We should have 1.) both 2.) neither 3.) individual accounts for each campus.

Some books hold...um...surprises

Keep an eye out for this sort of thing as you go about the task of weeding:

PCC Instruction Room LL102

Hello PCC Staff,

Yesterday we learned that the projector bulb in room  LL102 at PCC needed to be replaced. If you are teaching a class at PCC this semester, please allow a few minutes extra before the class begins to setup the media cart.  To setup the media cart:

1. Plug it in the wall using the provided cord.
2. Turn on the Projector and focus the image.
3. Turn on the provided laptop.

It may be 1-2 months before the part will arrive, so please make a note of this.

Thank you,

Gabriel

“How Americans Value Public Libraries in Their Communities”

Even though our focus is “academic libraries,” I thought this recent
data for “public libraries” from the Pew Research Center are still
relevant. This is a link to the article “How Americans Value Public
Libraries in Their Communities” by Kathryn Zickuhr, et al:

New Books Display

I revamped the "Recent additions to the book collection" display shelve.
With all the new books we are getting in, I thought it would be a good
idea to put attractive new books there and to create more room for the
rest of the new arrivals.  Feel free to move them around as more books are
cataloged.
