This Month in the Agenda: April 1988

The AgendaAll Work and No Play… From the University Librarian

I have a new personal computer at home, fully compatible with the office computers, and there is a busy traffic in diskettes with work begun in one place, completed in another, spell-checked, proofread and printed in yet a third location. It’s a wonderful productivity tool and an interesting toy as well.

However, my new-found ability to mingle further my work and personal life leads me to speculate about how this sort of technology may in the future blur the distinction between work and home and between work time and leisure time. When I find myself contentedly bent over the terminal right into the middle of “Cagney and Lacey,” I know something different is going on.

We’ll TSB-Seeing You Soon!

After all the years of planning, we finally have definite news about the new Technical Services Building for the Libraries which is to be built on the Busch Campus next to the existing Annex…. [The] schedule has been considerably shortened in the contract as awarded, and now calls for building completion by October 29, 1988. Allowing a month for furniture installation in November, the schedule now provides for our moving into the new building in December. Though delays can always occur, it is now possible for TAS to begin thinking about being in the new building by the December holidays.

In a Bind?

On Friday, April 15, a field trip to the Library Binding Company, Horsham, PA is planned for SCILS students enrolled in the Preservation course. R.U.L. staff members are invited to join the group, especially those involved with commercial library binding. It is a good opportunity to view a binding operation and to ask questions about services. Library Binding Company handles a lot of Rutgers’ materials. If you want to go, please contact Susan Swartzburg, ext. 8573, as soon as possible.
