Library suspends book purchases/ Briscoe Library book inventory underway

Book purchasing to be suspended

Due to budget reductions, the library will suspend routine ordering of books for the remainder of this fiscal year.  New editions of essential books will be replaced and book purchase requests from faculty and students will be ordered, if in scope for the library’s collection.  If you wish to request a book for purchase, contact Andrea N. Schorr, Cataloging/Acquisitions Librarian, at 567-2403, email to schorr@uthscsa.edu.  A purchase suggestion form is also available on the library’s Web site.

Upcoming inventory of 5th floor book collection

Beginning in February the Briscoe Library will conduct an inventory of the fifth floor book collection.  During the inventory process library staff will identify any problems or discrepancies in the book collection and make corrections where necessary.  Library staff will also work on identifying books that are missing from the collection.  Orange flags will be used for identification purposes and should not be removed.  Books that contain orange flags can still be checked out.  If you would like to check out a book that has an orange flag please take it to the circulation desk.  The book inventory will be handled with as little interruption as possible.

If you have questions about the book inventory contact Andrea N. Schorr, Cataloging & Acquisitions Librarian, (210) 567-2403 or schorr@uthscsa.edu.
