Throughout the pandemic, we’ve all wondered what the new normal will look like once we’ve emerged. While we may not be out of the woods, regular services are returning to the library with some of the past year’s innovations continuing. Here’s what you can expect to see this semester.
More study space: Our first deck renovation is nearly complete and there’s more study space with views of College Creek available.
Research help in multiple ways: Librarians will be providing research help in person and online during most library hours. Subject librarians are also available by appointment.
Remote item requests: You can request items you find in Nimitz Search to be pulled and held for you. When they're ready, pick up your requested materials from the Checkout Desk.
Self-checkout and games: Due to their popularity, both the self-checkout and board games in the lobby remain available.
Special Collections & Archives hours: SC&A will be open for anyone to walk in 1230-1630 on weekdays. If you'd like to visit SC&A on a weekday morning, just make an appointment.
Nimitz Cafe: We’ve been told the coffee bar will reopen on 2 Sept.
We’re looking forward to seeing you back in the library for the new academic year. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more info about any of these items.
Not only is Nimitz Library opening its newly renovated space this semester, but we're also hosting a multifaceted exhibit on the theme of postcards in that space. Centered around Troy University’s traveling exhibit, Military Service: A History in Postcards, the exhibit includes postcards from our own Special Collections & Archives, postcards written by the class of 2025 during Plebe Summer with their thoughts on military service, and a digital exhibit of postcards from the Paul Weiss Papers depicting the procession of John Paul Jones’s remains through Paris as they began their journey to the US. The physical exhibit runs through 24 September.
