Journal Integration Project

Posted February 19, 2015

A project is underway in Dimond Library to shift books and integrate journals in the Library’s main stacks. This move is required for Library stacks to be in compliance with the current fire code.

To make room for the shift, some bound journals (for which UNH owns electronic access) will be removed from the collection and offered to UNH faculty (first) and then other groups.

Other bound volumes (for which the library does not own electronic access) will be available from the Library’s on-campus storage building. The volumes’ locations will be indicated and can be requested through the online catalog.

To make access even faster and easier, a scan-on-demand service has been implemented for items in library storage.
