Susan sent this on in case it comes up for any of us here.  Note that the journal title is incorrect in ERIC and may lead some students to believe we do not have access.  The second citation has the correct title for the Electronic Journal Locator.

Thank Reilly for discovering this problem.

Support Groups: A Special Therapeutic Entity.
Rosenberg, Pearl P.
Small Group Behavior, v15 n2 p173-86 May 1984

While this citation is correct according to ERIC, the citation is listed in other indexes (and in the journal) as:

Small Group Research 1984 15: 173
Pearl P. Rosenberg
Support Groups : A Special Therapeutic Entity

With the new citation , it is available electronically. All the instructors teaching 505 have been notified.
Please pass this on to staff.

I think everyone is now aware of the new location for current print newspaper subscriptions. They have moved from reference to the current periodicals area. Please note that we will be keeping one month of each newspaper. Another minor change in this area is that there is now a “browsing rack” for current magazines. These titles are selected by the shelvers to be on the rack, but it will not be cataloged location. If you are helping someone to look for a current issues of somthing like Time, Newsweek, Vogue or Nature this is a place to check!

I encourage each of you to take a look at both of these new locations next time you are over on Cudahy Level one.

Thanks,
Jeannette

We would like to thank John and Terese Mulkern Terry, both Loyola alums of the class of 1959, for their generous $1 million donation to University Libraries, which established two endowment funds—one to purchase electronic resources in business and communications, and the other to establish a lecture series managed by the University Libraries. We thank Mr. and Mrs. Terry for their support.

There are lockers that you may use if you need extra space and don’t want to carry around extras that you bring to campus. The lockers are located just in the room next to the staff lounge on the 1st floor of Cudahy. All you have to do is bring your own padlock and notify Carol Franklin (Administration office) of which locker you are using.

Hello Everyone,

The Graduate Student Advisory Council (GSAC) has planned a benefit dance and silent auction to raise funds for the Loyola Community Literacy Center. The dance and auction will take place on on Saturday Feb. 5, 2011 at Water Tower Campus. If you are unable to attend a donation would be greatly appreciated. For additional information see the attached link. I will also include a link where you can purchase tickets or submit your donation on line. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

FYI. There are new problems with printing at the desk. Nick is informed and working on it, but it may be later today or tomorrow.

Hello —
I apologize that the arms to the computers were removed without notice. This was not supposed to happen, though I have been assured the arms were actually broken. This type of equipment is expensive to replace, so we must try to work without the arms for a while at least. I will ask for some feedback about how this is working later in the semester. In the meantime, please note that you can raise the screen up and down, which I hope will hope to mitigate sun issues. Also, if you set the base at an angle and then turn the screen to face you, you will find it easier to turn the screen for patrons. Ask me if this is not clear.

Thanks for your patience.
Jeannette

There is a server error that will not allow our content to be viewed on computers off-campus. The blog, the hours, and some of the forms may not be visible to visitors off-campus, so you may be receiving a higher volume of phone calls regarding this problem.

We are working to correct the problem and hope to have it resolved by early next week. Thank you for your patience.
