Barker Engineering Library Reorganization

Posted July 11th, 2008 by Ryan Gray

cutie-pieThe Barker Engineering Library is reorganizing its collections this summer to create room for the growth of book collections and to provide better access to materials.

In recent years, the Engineering and Science Libraries have greatly increased their electronic journal subscriptions. As a result of increased digital access, many of the print equivalents were moved to the Library Storage Annex (LSA). The space gained as a result of the collection move will allow Barker to rearrange collections, creating room for long-term growth.

Additionally, Barker’s journal collection will no longer be organized alphabetically by title. Instead, the collection has been given call numbers, which now appear in Barton, the Libraries’ online catalog. The new classification will make it easier to find the volume you need on the shelf.

The journal collection is currently being moved to its new location on the 8th floor, in its new call number order. If you have any questions during the reorganization, please ask for assistance at the service desk.
