1. ANNOUNCEMENTS
A. UPDATE: BOUND PERIODICAL STACKS
The bound periodicals stacks, located at the center of Fogler Library, have been consolidated into three levels (1, 1b, and 2) from four. Removing and storing physical copies of electronically-duplicated periodicals titles made consolidation possible. Bound periodicals are arranged alphabetically by title and the breakdown by level is as follows:
Level 1: A-Fiddlehead
Level 1b: Field-Slavonic
Level 2: Sleep-Zygon
Space gained from the consolidation project will result in the allocation of over 100 additional student seats in the Reserve Reading Room, Government Documents section, and level 2 book stacks by fall of 2014.

B. FOGLER FILM SERIES
The Fogler Film Series begins on Tuesday, September 24th with "Holding Ground: The Rebirth of Dudley Street." The film will be shown at 7:00 pm in the CETA Classroom at Fogler Library and will be followed by a discussion.
