The schedule is already out for Spring 2014! It's never too early to start thinking about the research needs of you and your students for next semester! 

Are you teaching a new course?
Whether it's new to you or new to campus, we want to provide excellent resources for all classes so drop us a line if we're missing something from our stacks that your students will need to be successful. If you know what you need for the spring semester, let us know ASAP so we can order it and have it ready in time for the first day of classes. 

Are you working on new research?
Whether it's a literature review you're halfway through, or new research you're just beginning, the library would be happy to find materials for your professional and scholarly research interests. 

So gather your Amazon print-outs, your catalogs covered in Post-its or your highlighted flyers and get your wish list to me so I can get your books and DVDs ordered and processed as soon as possible so they will be ready when the semester begins. You may send them via campus mail, in a digital list via email or stop by the library and drop them off in person. If you come across materials that you would like purchased in support of your curriculum, please stop by the library or emailhblackbu@ksu.edu anytime through out the semester. 

See you in the library!
