The Library’s annual statistics for 2002/2003 are available on the Library homepage under About the Library>Library Departments>Administration. The section of this report that can be relied upon to demonstrate continual growth is Digital Access to the Library’s resources.
The Digital Access data in the 2002/2003 annual statistics are as follows:
In 2001/2002, the total number of electronic access to Library resources was 541,357. The percentage increase this year was 33.5%
Because Library patrons
are increasingly using Library resources remotely in their offices, classrooms
or at home, greater visibility on part of library staff in UCHC departments
appears reasonable and necessary in order to assist users in fully and
efficiently using Library-based e-information. The Library liaison and
outreach program is an initiative, as discussed in previous director’s
reports, to accomplish this end.
Librarians are available to meet with the faculty and staff of those in UCHC departments, programs or committees to provide descriptions and updates on Library resources, hear user concerns, coordinate possible training needs and discuss recommendations for new Library acquisitions.
Librarian liaisons are currently working in the following areas:
Those interested in receiving the services of a Librarian Liaison should contact Ralph Arcari, Director, L.M. Stowe Library: Arcari@nso.uchc.edu; 860/679-2547.
Wireless access points have been installed in the Library and are currently being adjusted for strength and range. This installation is intended to facilitate Library patron use of wireless laptops and PDAs .
The compact storage flooring in the center of the sub-basement stacks has been an obstacle course because of the raised rails on which the shelving carriages operated. New flooring has been installed to provide uniformity in the floor height.
