Hi, everybody! Doug, here. If you are the type of person to pay attention to this sort of thing, and why wouldn’t you be, Fair Reader, you might have noticed that the library blog’s last entry was over a month ago. What’s going on?
What happened is that the wonderful Sheeji Kathuria, who had kept up the blog for some time, accepted a job offer to become Mississippi State University’s Social Science Librarian. In her absence, I’ll be stepping in to make some posts about the goings on around the library and the campus. The first entry will be next Monday, as I start a new series taking a look at some of the clubs, organizations, and people who keep our campus vibrant. I will also try to add in blogs taking a more in-depth approach about the resources the library offers. There will also be blog entries covering events and people around the library, as usual.
Before I go, though, just want to take a moment to say: Congrats, Sheeji, and thanks for your work on the blog and with all the things you’ve done around here!
See you next week.

We recently put in some new furniture on the 1st floor of Salmon Library. Called “media:scapes,” these unique pieces of furniture provide large, somewhat private group seating as well as double monitors that easily lend to displaying and sharing your work.
Here’s a diagram of how you can get to them when you’re inside the library:

Important announcement: As part of continued construction of the campus greenway, the Salmon Library parking lot will be permanently closing. Construction will start on the crosswalk at Holmes Avenue, Monday, October 14th. As a result of this work, the parking lot with access from Holmes Avenue will be closed effective October 13, 2013. This lot will be removed shortly thereafter, but work on Holmes Avenue itself necessitates closure of the access.
The parking lot closer to the Nursing Building will still be open, with entrance to it coming from Ben Graves drive, not Holmes Avenue. Library patrons may find alternate parking at the Intermodal Facility lots located at University Fitness Center, Spragins Hall, and Wilson Hall/Business Administration Building.
