New Titles

Libraries News

  • Up-and-Coming Artists: The CML’s very own Jason Matherly was featured in a recent Flagpole article on local up-and-coming artists. Take a look! His paintings are the featured work. It’s great to work with talented people.

  • New Books in the Main Library: So, when you see that list of new titles, where exactly ARE those books? In the Main Library, go around the corner from the Access Services desk when you first enter the building. The new Science books are to the left when you enter the Science Library. In both libraries, new book displays will be pared down to those which are likely to have a greater appeal. So, if you see info on a new book and it is not on the shelf that GIL says it should be on, take a look at the new book shelves. In the CML, our new books, which feature our Spanish-language materials, are to the right of the door when you first enter. Bottom line: If you can’t find it where it should be, ASK someone. We’ll help you find it. That’s what we do.

  • Intersession Hours: When classes end, the Libraries’ hours change. In the Main & Science Libraries, starting August 1st through August 17th, weekday hours will be 8:00-6:00, Saturdays 10am to 6pm, closed on Sundays, August 3rd & 10th. The CML will begin shortened hours on July 31st through August 17th: 8:00-5:00, closed Saturdays & Sundays. Visit the Libraries’ homepage for complete hours info.

    • Don’t forget the drop boxes! Closed Libraries needn’t mean overdue items. (Geez, I sound like somebody’s mother. Oh wait! I am…) There are drop boxes available at the Main & Science Libraries and the CML box is inside Aderhold, next to the CML entrance. You may return library materials from any STATE  (not PUBLIC) library at any of our UGA locations: CML, Main & Science Libraries AND your materials are marked as returned dated to the last time we were open. Off your desk and off your account. Problem solved.

  • Library Instruction: New students? New assignments? Old worries? We can help. Nadine Cohen & Carla Wilson Buss are available to come to your classes to help your students find what they need, when they need it. We also meet with people one-on-one for individual help. Ask us. We’re nice.

  • Reserve Materials: Jason Matherly isn’t just an artist, he’s the reserves guy in the CML. If you want to put materials on reserve for your classes, he’s the guy to see.

    • For scanned articles and e-reserves, please visit the Access Services/Reserves page for complete information, including deadlines.
