Welcome to a new academic year!

Welcome to the 2015-2016 academic year! We look forward to meeting new faces and welcoming back those of you who are returning.

The last year has brought quite a few changes to the David Allan Hubbard Library, and we are excited about how these changes will serve you better. The year has included building new spaces, shifting collection locations, and moving staff to new offices.

Faculty Commons

The north side (old side) of the third floor has been transformed into the new Faculty Commons. This space now houses the offices of distributed learning and eReserves, and offers meeting space for faculty. The Faculty Commons has already helped to facilitate collaboration among faculty at all campuses and improved the support of faculty with their research and curricular needs. We look forward to continuing to develop the use of this space to serve as a “one stop shop” for faculty. To finalize the construction of the Faculty Commons, a new, permanent wall and door will be installed in the coming weeks.

New Collection Locations

To make room for the Faculty Commons, those print periodicals that may also be accessed online were moved to closed stacks. If you are in need of these print periodicals, they are still available by requesting them from the Information Access Services desk. Otherwise, you may access them through our online databases.

Other collections were also moved to make access easier. Shifts include the following.

  • As mentioned, the print copies of periodicals that are available online have been moved to closed stacks. They may still be accessed by request.
  • The Darling Foundation Pacific Rim Collection (formerly known as the Asian Christian Collection) has moved to second floor to allow room for expansion.
  • All open-stack print periodicals are on the south side (new side) of the third floor.
  • Reference materials have been consolidated and moved to the De Pree Reading Room on the first floor.
  • Current periodicals are on display in the Weyerhaueser Reading Room on the first floor.
  • The newly created Fuller Faculty Publications Collection will soon be available in the center bookshelves in the Weyerhaueser Reading Room. This collection will include all books published by all full-time faculty since the founding of the seminary.

New Staff Locations

Some of the library’s more commonly sought staff moved offices in the last year. Moves include the following.

  • Our Interlibrary Loan Technician, Gail Frederick, is now located in an office behind the Information Access Services desk. You may ask for her at the front desk.
  • Our Reference Librarian, Bonggun Baek, is now in an office on the first floor of the library, in the Weyerhaueser Reading Room (old side of the building).
  • Also on the first floor in the Weyerhaueser Reading Room is Technical Support Services (also known as “Tech Support” and “Help Desk”).
  • The Writing Center is now housed in two offices on the south side (new side) of the third floor.

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask any of our library staff. We are happy to help.

As we begin this new academic year, we pray that it will be one of learning, growing, and deepening.

David Allan Hubbard Library Staff
