By Aspasia Luster, Senior Library Assistant, Reese Library
Over the summer break, Reese Library created a separate Oversized Books section. This new section is comprised entirely of books that are too long or bulky to fit on the shelves among the regular, circulating collection. The creation of this separate section gives the regular collection a visually cleaner look while maintaining patron safety.
All books in the Oversized Books section are available for checkout. They are clearly labeled with an “Oversized” sticker above the spine label and their call numbers in the library catalog begin with an “OS” designation.
The Oversized Collection is located on the third floor behind the regular collection.
