SUNY Oneonta update
« Reply #16 on: November 15, 2012, 09:09:00 PM »
A short update from Milne Library at SUNY Oneonta.

There was an active shooter scenario that took place in the library. University police staged the scenario to work out how police, students, staff, and anyone else should respond in the event that a shooter come into the building. The library was officially closed to the public for part of that day, but students and staff from around the campus participated as if they were actually in such a scenario. A drama student played the part of the shooter. As part of the outcome of the event, the library has installed locks for the front door that can be activated remotely. Previously, our front doors could only be locked by someone with keys right at the door.

Our Banned Books Bracket received an innovation award from the South Central Regional Library Council.

Re: Campus Updates - MVCC

There is not much to report from MVCC libraries since our post-summer report.  It's all about library instruction and reference at this time of the semester.  The librarians are in the process of coming up with a workflow for weeding throughout the year, as opposed to doing it intensely only during the summer break.  Our ILL service has seem a significant increase in activity since we joined IDS, so we are trying to make staffing adjustments.
