Toward a Greener Library
Henderson Library is making the switch from paper to electronic notifications for our approval plan, which is a long-standing arrangement with Blackwell’s Book Services which allows us to automatically purchase books according to criteria we’ve established (subjects, etc.).
Blackwell’s also provides us with notifications of other new books being published which we might need to order (also based upon criteria we’ve selected in collaboration with departmental faculty). From each academic department on campus, a Library Representative works closely with us to maintain the approval plan profile, and to choose other new books based upon the notifications we receive.
We are excited about our recent decision to take advantage of Blackwell’s electronic notifications, known as eNotes. Our Subject Specialist Librarians are now working with the Library Representatives to set up eNotes in the format (e.g., Word attachment) and frequency of their choice. We have heard expressions of relief from many faculty members who are glad to be taking advantage of this more efficient and earth-friendly service!
