Joint Texas A&M – UT System library facility will house low-circulation books and journals

A&M-UT System Library Facility

Construction of a facility to preserve library resources of Texas A&M University and The University of Texas System is set to begin in June near Bryan, Texas.

Texas A&M University System board of regents formally approved a $6.3 million appropriation to build a facility preserving library resources of Texas A&M University and the University of Texas System.  Construction of the 18,000-square-foot facility on Texas A&M’s Riverside Campus will begin in June and is scheduled to be completed by March 2013.

The library facility will house about 1 million low-circulation books and older journal volumes and make them available to scholars and other interested parties upon request.

Texas A&M President R. Bowen Loftin stated, “This is an excellent example of cooperation between Texas A&M and the University of Texas for the benefit of our students and faculties, and potentially other scholars and researchers and it’s ultimately of cost-saving benefit to the taxpayers of Texas.”  A process is being implemented through which institutions can “share” a single copy of duplicated holdings in storage.  This allows for the elimination of redundancy in individual collections while preserving a collective copy that can be recalled for use in research and study among users at multiple institutions.

Leisure Reading at the Briscoe Library

Wanna get away? Explore the Leisure Reading Collection at the Briscoe Library and escape the stresses of daily life for a while . The Leisure Collection consists of approximately 50 books and 10 popular magazines, and is located on the main floor of the Briscoe Library in the seating area across from the Circulation Desk.

The leisure books include a variety of fiction and nonfiction titles, many of which are best sellers. In this collection you can expect to find books about mystery, romance, history, biography, science fiction, and more. The leisure books are provided through a subscription-based service, so book titles are rotated quarterly. New books are selected every three months so be sure to check the shelf periodically for new titles.  All leisure books can be checked out for a period of two weeks.

For a complete list of the leisure books click here.

LeisureColl

The popular magazines are located next to the current journals, however they are for use in the library and do not circulate. Some of the titles in the popular magazine collection include: National Geographic, Business Week, PC World, MacWorld, Sports Illustrated, People Magazine, and The New Yorker.

The Leisure Collection is funded through library donations. Titles are currently selected by library staff, but suggestions are welcome. Send suggestions to askalibrarian@uthscsa.edu.

Library consolidates reference collection to free up space

In order to maximize study space on the third floor, the library has reduced the size of its reference collection. Prior to this change the library had two reference collections, the ready reference collection and the regular reference collection, both totaling over 2,000 volumes.  These collections were housed on the third floor of the library.

The new reference collection is a combination of the former ready reference and regular reference collections.  The new reference collection consists of approximately 230 volumes and is located near the Pod C computers on the main floor of the library.

The new collection is more concise but still remains authoritative in nature.  Materials in this collection do not circulate but can be browsed in the library.  Many materials from the former reference collections were weeded, replaced with electronic resources, or moved to the general collection.
