Spring 2023 Carries on!

Hopefully, the semester has gotten off to a great start! Or just a start, at least!

Look... we're landlocked. If you're working and need to pretend like we've got a beach view, here's a different ambience video than the wintery ones from newsletters past.

Let the CLCL know what you might need!

Need videos and movies for your students held on reserve by the Main Library? The process has been streamlined so that links can be shared on your ICON site and students can stream at their convenience! The Main Library can also acquire almost any title that you might need, should you not have digital versions. The process is somewhat new, but you can contact Andy Lewis in the CLCL to learn more about the process!
