If you use our Kanopy film streaming service, which offers many documentaries and independent films, you'll want to know about our recent shift to a mediated access model. When you select a film that's not already licensed by the library, you'll be prompted to submit a request form.

Beginning in September, the library will be using security cameras in several locations in the Hatcher and Shapiro buildings — entrances/exits, elevator lobbies, and stairwell landings — to enhance the safety and security of our community.
Mblem, a digital credentialing and badging system, was developed in 2014 by the former Learning Technologies Incubation Group (LTIG) within Library Information Technology. It was piloted by several campus units for several years.
The Mblem service was retired on April 5, 2019.

What makes a book? A cover, sure; binding, fine; and pages, of course. Must the pages be paper, or is there wiggle room? Could they be, say, cheese? (Or, more accurately, cheese food.) Controversies abound with American Cheese, a book (?) of 20 individually-wrapped slices of American singles bound in a yellow cover. It can be found on the shelves of the Art, Architecture & Engineering Library’s Special Collections, stored comfortably in a plastic sandwich container at room temperature, because, as one would hope of a book, it is shelf-stable.
