Please pass along to ALL faculty!!

 

The Fall 2009 semester is fast approaching and will be here before we know it. Please start thinking ahead. Reserve items can be submitted now for the upcoming semester. Don't delay in letting us know what is needed.    

 

 Those of you who are teaching the same materials from a previous semester(s), contact us know so that the listings can updated for your classes.

 

Reserve materials currently on reserve and not used for the upcoming semester will be mailed back to the Departments beginning Monday, August 10th if not picked up sooner.

 

Contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

 

Hope you are having a great Summer.
