But First; this newsletter now goes to Alumni:

Beginning with this issue alumni of the College of Business Administration and the Collins School of Hospitality Management will receive Inform. To quote from Issue Number 1, Inform is:
“…a quarterly newsletter, in the tradition and style of Kiplinger or Janeway, which will report on Cal Poly library resources. Follow this reporter and you will not only learn the full range of library services, you will keep current on significant new acquisitions.”
See the Internet site above for back issues of Inform. Please feel free to contact our editorial staff at (909) 869-4352 or for questions about alumni access to Library resources.

A new, large-capacity Library classroom:

If you have 40, 50, 60 or more students in your classes, the University Library now has a classroom that can accommodate the entire class for instruction in research strategies. The room is state of the art with two screens to project computer images and 30 computer workstations for “hands-on” student interaction teaching and learning.
To schedule your large class for a lesson on how to use the Library either phone x3076 or send an e-mail request through the Library’s home page. On the home page select Services, then scroll down for Reference Instruction. This will display a link for the Library Instruction Request Form.
I am also available to do the Library Instruction in your classroom if you have access to the Internet. In some classrooms you will have to arrange with your department’s technical staff for Internet access ahead of time.
