Who Moved My . . . ?

The elves were busy at Hahnemann Library while students were on break. They moved some collections to make them easier to find, and started condensing the general book collections.

  • Careers Collection -- you'll now find these useful books in the first section of shelving across from the circulation desk, near the printing station.
  • Oversize Books -- these are now located to the right of the reference desk. If you've never browsed through our oversize books, take a look!
