Does anyone mind if we don't have the login to this blog?  I would like to add it to my RSS feeds, and can't because of the login.  I'm quite frankly not going to remember to check it daily without some kind of visual nudge, and the RSS feed would do that.

Serials has informed me that we are no longer going to be getting the paper reversion of the Wall Street Journal. We subscribe to it online and that will be our only source.

Couper Classroom Blower

I put in a work order a couple of weeks ago to have the blower in the couper classroom diverted away from the screen.  If anyone sees anyone from Physical Plant working on it, please let me know so I can make sure it's what we're looking for.


Xerox Copier

Hi all,

Some of you may have noticed that the Xerox copier has been out of order multiple times in the past week.  Paul, our regular Xerox repairman, suspects that the copier motor is failing and that it is the main culprit when the copier jams.  Unfortunately, he also mentioned that getting a replacement motor may be impossible because the copier is pretty outdated at this point.  Paul cleaned up the gears and greased them yesterday, and that does seem to improve the Xerox copier's improvement in the short term.  In any case, the Xerox copier is slated to be replaced with a Minolta copier - like the ones for public use - sometime in March.  We have no idea *when* this happens; we only know that March is the magic month.

In the meantime, if the Xerox machine jams while you're using it, let Circ know and we'll call in the repair.  We're hoping to make it last as is until the replacement copier arrives.  If it's out of order and you need to use a machine that will be kinder to book bindings, Circ can set you up with a card for the public copiers.
