Last Thursday, November 13, Virginia and I drove up to Century College and met with Jane Young (Director), Randi Madisen (Electronic Resources Librarian), Bonnie Oldre (Reference Librarian), and Cathy Adams (Reference/ILL Tech). Our discussion covered several topics including MULS, OCLC ILL, WorldCat Registry and WorldCat Collection Analysis. The staff was particularly interested in OCLC statistics, so we showed them the available reports,
Century College has a brand new library, and Jane gave us a tour. It was quite impressive with dark wood furniture, a fireplace, artwork, and plenty of natural light. It also has several group study rooms, a spacious, well-equipped computer classroom, and a large work area for the staff.
After our meeting Virginia, Jane, and I went to lunch nearby at Betty’s Pies. The food was good and the pies were incredible. I highly recommend it.
Here's some pictures of the new library.
The colorful Circ Desk
and the equally colorful Ref Desk.
