Library Summer Hours and Updates

The Cunningham Memorial Library operates year-round. Here are some important items to be aware of as we head into the summer months:

  • Summer hours will be in effect beginning May 16: Monday-Thursday, 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.; Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 5:00  p.m.; Saturday, Noon – 5:00 p.m.; Sunday, Noon – 9:00 p.m.
  • The Cup and Chaucer Café is currently open 8am – 1pm.
  • OIT has permanently closed the IT student consultant help desk, previously located between the Circulation and Reference counters. ISU Library personnel cannot provide technical support for user’s personal electronic devices. Students will be referred to the Technology Support Center (Stalker 009). Check http://www2.indstate.edu/oit/# or phone 812.237.2910 for summer hours.
  • RESEARCH, REFERENCE, INSTRUCTIONAL SUPPORT: Reference/Instruction Librarians are available for in-class and online support. Faculty wishing to schedule information literacy-based sessions should contact the Instruction Scheduler, barbara.austin@indstate.edu or call 812.237.2604. The Library’s main instruction classroom will be unavailable for much of May-July, so plan ahead or request librarians come to your regular classroom. Contacting librarians to prepare for fall semester instructional support can expedite the planning process, whether it is scheduling, developing new research guides (LibGuides), or consulting on research/writing assignments.
  • In addition to available assistance at the 1st floor desk (Circulation/Reference), people wishing to set up reference and research consultations are invited to use the MEET WITH A LIBRARIAN ONLINE FORM. Find it on the library website under the HELP drop-down menu, as well as elsewhere on the homepage & website. Bookmark/Favorite it on your own computer: http://library.indstate.edu/forms/liaison.asp.
  • Summer is an excellent time for families to explore our TMC, children’s fiction and non-fiction (Lower Level) as well as having less competition for finding and checking out your favorite movie and TV DVDs from the 1st floor Browsing
  • It’s also a great time to see what our streaming media collections, Films on Demand and Alexander Street, have that you can link to (full documentaries or just short segments, or your own Playlists)
  • The Library has copies of the new 8th edition of the MLA Handbook. Check the online catalog for location and availability.
