Last Books Evicted from UT Undergrad Library
Or, "We Don't Need No Stinkin' Books"
San Antonio is an appealing location for the ALA Midwinter meeting. The weather, compared to Ithaca’s usually cold January, is mild, and pedestrian pathways wind along a riverwalk with greenery and twittering birds overhead. I packed in several valuable sessions on Saturday and Sunday, making the trip well worthwhile.
The Map & Geospatial Information Collection
“I love maps!”

Native American Collection Processing Moves Forward in LTS
The Cornell Native American Collection (NAC), formerly held by the Huntington Free Library in the Bronx, was transferred to CUL’s custody in June 2004. This rich collection comprises more than 40,000 volumes and over 200 cubic feet of archival materials dealing with the history, languages, and cultures of the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Since its arrival in Ithaca that summer, Library Technical Services (LTS) staff have been chipping away at the processing of the print materials in the collection. In September 2004 most of the items designated for the circulating collection were shipped to Mann Library, where technical services staff began the task of cataloging the unique items for CUL.
