BorrowDirect Service Temporary Change Dec 21 - Jan 3


COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES, Thursday, Dec. 20, 2001 Although Borrow Direct will be available from December 21, 2001 through January 1, 2002, the four business day turnaround that is characteristic of BorrowDirect transactions will not be possible.

There are two long weekends this year during which all three libraries will close: Sat. December 21, 2001 - Tues. December 25, 2001 and Saturday, Dec. 29, 2001 - Tuesday, January 1, 2002. In addition, some branch libraries and shipping units at Penn and Yale are closed until after the New Year.

This means that the Yale University and the University of Pennsylvania libraries will not be able to retrieve and ship material within normal timeframes during the holiday period. All three libraries will resume normal service on Wednesday, January 3, 2002.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may present.
