Shannon comes to us from the library director role at Southern Wesleyan University and will be on campus, eager to meet you, in late August. 

Please join us as we pray for her transition and that of her family to this new area, new schools, and new...everything. We are confident that the Lord has brought Shannon among us, and we look forward to her leadership in our department and across campus.

Library Changes - Fall 2021

Library Changes - 2021-2022

Changes in the Library (Fall 2021)

Every new year sees changes in the Library and this summer has seen modification of numerous Library spaces affecting several departments: 

  • The Lewis Center has moved locations to the Main level, Room 108, the former Flood Room, from the Lower level. 
  • The Library Director, Shannon Brooks, has also moved to the Main level in Room 109, next to the new Lewis Center, from the Lower level. As we welcome our new Director, stop by to see her in the new space! 
  • Taylor University Online (TUO) has moved into the building. They are located on the Lower level. You can find the Director of Online Learning, Carrie Meyer, in Room 016. Stop by to welcome them to the building.

Collections have also moved in the building. 

  • Graphic Novels are housed next to the Games Collection in the west wing, near the AEC, on the Main level. 
  • Audiobooks are at the back of the Fiction Collection shelves, next to the Juvenile Collection, on the Main level. 
  • DVDs are at the front of the Periodicals Collection on the Main level. 
  • The Lewis & Friends Collection is now in the south wing of the Main level, outside the new location of the Lewis Center, across from the Tech Express Desk. 
  • Sunday School/VBS curriculum, used by the Christian Ministries department is now housed at the back of the Periodicals shelves, next to Room 142. 

You may notice furniture changes as you walk through the building to find your favorite spot for studying. We welcome your feedback and suggestions as we continue to seek the best balance between functionality and hospitality. 

Please contact Lana Wilson, Assistant Director, if you have any questions (lnwilson@taylor.edu).

Library Pick-Up Service

Pick-Up Service with Minimal Contact

 

While our building is open and we welcome you to come in to select resources from our shelves, we will continue to provide access to library materials through the pick-up service outlined below. The process is ideal for our patrons who desire minimal-contact.

Complete a Form. Materials may be requested using this form (one item per form). Please complete the Title, Author, and Call # fields as this will greatly reduce staff time needed to pull the material from the shelves.

Scheduled Pick-Up. You may pick up your materials anytime the Library is open (see Library Hours). Library staff will email you when your request is ready for pick-up or if there are any issues. 

Pick-Up Location. The pick-up location is at the Library's Check Out Desk. Your requested material will be available for pickup for five days, and if you do not retrieve it, it will then be checked in and reshelved.

Returning Materials. Please return books to the Check Out Desk, in the tan Book Return bin located outside the north entrance (near the Bell Tower), or in the Book Return located in the south entrance vestibule. If you have equipment or DVDs to return, these cannot be returned through the Book Returns and must be returned to the Check Out Desk.

Email CheckOutDesk@taylor.edu with questions on any part of this process.
