The Library Welcomes Julie

The Loyola/Notre Dame Library welcomes Julie Nanavati to their staff! Julie joined the Loyola/Notre Dame Library staff on July 7th, 2008, and will serve as a Research and Instruction Librarian. Julie received her Masters of Library Science from the University of Maryland, College Park in December 2005 and her B.A. in English from St. Mary's College of Maryland. Prior to working at the Loyola/Notre Dame Library, she held the position of Liaison/Outreach Librarian for the Health Sciences and Human Services Library at University of Maryland, Baltimore. She also worked as a Reference and Research Librarian for the Maryland AIDS Administration.

Julie is very excited about her new position, where she will provide reference services and library instruction to the faculty and students from both Loyola and Notre Dame campuses. In addition, she will serve as the new disability coordinator, and is also looking forward to the opportunity to work as the library liaison for the Theatre and Film programs--a great chance to bring her personal interests to the job. Finally, Julie brings her previous work experience to Notre Dame as the school starts its new Pharmacy program.

If you would like to say “Hi,” to Julie or ask her a question regarding the library's services and resources, please email her at jenanavati@loyola.edu or jnanavati@ndm.edu. You can also contact her by phone at 410-617-6831-- or drop by the library and ask for Julie at the Information/Research Assistance Desk!

Third floor now open!

The third floor of LNDL is now open! This means you are now free to roam all over the building to find the exact right space to sit and read, or spread out and study.

Library staff are still working to shift some bound journals between the second and third floors, so don't be surprised as things continue to move around. Here's a current list of where you can find books and bound journals:
  • Lower Level:Books with call numbers P-Z
  • Main Floor: Books with call numbers N (art books); Reference Books; Recent issues of journals and magazines
  • Second Floor: Books with call numbers A-M; some bound journals (they'll be moved up to the third floor soon enough); Juvenile collection (call numbers A to Z)
  • Third Floor: Bound journals (shelved alphabetically by title)
If you have questions about where to find something, or if you have trouble locating a journal, please ask for help at the information desk or the circulation desk on the main floor.

Take a look at what you'll see if you stop by:

Some empty shelves, waiting to be loaded up.

Library staff can follow the plans created by the Collection Management Services department to figure out where to put each journal. You can see the plans taped to the end of each set of stacks. There are also markers on the shelves with additional instructions.

There might still be a little bit of noise as shelving is assembled and fully-loaded library carts are wheeled around, but there's plenty of seating!
