Armacost Library Facelift

The entryway to Armacost Library will be receiving a facelift including elevator access to the front of the building! Beginning Monday, July 21st patrons of Armacost Library will be asked to enter the library through tunnels on the east and west sides of the building. These tunnels will serve as the main entry to the library until the summer of 2009 when the construction project is completed.

On July 28th, our construction team will begin the process of removing the library’s portico. The library will be closed and reference, interlibrary loan and reserves services will be suspended from July 28th to August 5th while this intensive construction takes place. We thank you for your patience and understanding during the construction period.

You may view the construction progress on our building by visiting the library’s Flickr site or by viewing the library on the bulldog cam

Farewell, Angelynn!

The faculty and staff of Armacost Library are saying goodbye to a longtime colleague, Angelynn King. During her tenure at University of Redlands she served first as Access Services Librarian, then as Bibliographic Instruction Librarian, and finally as Technical Services Librarian. Angelynn has published articles and given presentations on information literacy and plagiarism, equitable access to information, Internet research habits of undergraduate students, health issues, and library humor. She has taught credit-bearing courses at the University of Redlands with topics ranging from “Buddhism in America” to “Information, Knowledge, and Power in the Electronic Age.” Her contributions to the Library and the University will be greatly missed.

Angelynn leaves us to take a position as Library Director of the Merrill Library at the University of Maine at Machias. We wish her all the best.
