Improved Interlibrary Loan Service

August 16th, 2016 · Comments Off on Improved Interlibrary Loan Service

Interlibrary Loan just got better!

You can now keep track of everything you have borrowed in one place!

All materials received from other libraries, regardless of how the requests are submitted, will now appear in your Brandeis library account (“My Account” in OneSearch) along with your Brandeis library materials.


You can renew all your Interlibrary Loan materials from My Account as well! Just click on the ILL Renewals link in My Account, and this will take you directly to the renewals page in your ILL account.

Now everything you have borrowed via Interlibrary Loan will also accrue overdue fines the same way as your Brandeis materials. Of course, you can avoid overdue fines by returning your loans on time! Visit our late fees page to learn more about our overdue and lost book policies.

Want to know more about getting books from other libraries? Check out our Interlibrary Loan self-help guide!

Library Unveils New Scanners

May 11th, 2016 · Comments Off on Library Unveils New Scanners

New, high-tech scanners have been installed in the Goldfarb Library Information Commons.

The “high-speed, face-up” KIC Click scanners capture the image of the scanned object from the top, saving wear on book spines, and simplifying the process of scanning multiple book pages (users simply flip the pages as they normally would). The scanners are operated by easy touch-screen controls, can scan in multiple formats, and can send the scanned file to Google Drive, iCloud (Apple), DropBox, OneDrive (Microsoft), Amazon Cloud Drive, and Box (

New Library scanner makes scanning easier!

Social Justice Forum: Ford Hall, After the Occupation

April 12th, 2016 · Comments Off on Social Justice Forum: Ford Hall, After the Occupation

You are warmly invited to join us at the next Social Justice Forum!

Ford Hall, After the Occupation:
A Conversation with Ford Hall Activists, Interim President Lynch, and You

Thursday April 21
12:00 PM
Shapiro Campus Center Multipurpose Room

Lisa Lynch, interim president
Ford Hall activists

Last Fall, campuses across the country were energized by a number of protests against campus racial inequity. Here at Brandeis, this culminated in the occupation of Ford Hall. The university and Ford Hall activists negotiated a multi-point agreement to address the concerns raised.

What has happened since? Join key participants in the occupation and resolution to learn how the agreement has been implemented, what changes have been made, and what still remains to be done.

The Social Justice Forum is a conversation series that encourages the Brandeis community to connect and discuss pertinent and compelling issues related to social justice on campus. In particular, we aim to do more than talk about social justice: we hope to organize to improve life on campus where we can. SJF is a collaborative effort of Graduate Student Affairs, the Office of the Chaplaincy, the Intercultural Center, the Student Union, and Library and Technology Services. Recent forum topics have included campus sustainability, transgender awareness, campus accessibility, and our conflict minerals policy.

To join the planning team, request more information, or to suggest topics, please contact Forum administrator David Wedaman

Please forward this email to any you think may be interested! No RSVP required.
