DELIVERY OF NEWSPAPERS 

  • Pittsfield News Service delivers newspapers to the northeast (back) door of the Davis Family Library each day
  • On weekends, it is the responsibility of staff at the Circulation Desk to retrieve copies of the New York Times, the Boston Globe and the Burlington Free Press newspapers and distribute them to the reading room and on the Music Library courier shelf
  • Look around! The papers may be found in mysterious places – outside one of the back doors, inside the Shipping/Receiving area, in Lib 133-135 (Collection Management area), or on the chair outside Lib 125 (the Helpdesk). Sunday inserts & magazine sections arrive on Saturdays – please save/set aside until Sunday
  • During college breaks, when the Davis Family Library is closed, papers can be left in the Serials Work Area for sorting and processing
  • When opening again on a Sunday after being closed, please process papers for that Sunday only, and leave all other papers in the Serials Work Area


Note – please do the following if the papers do not arrive:
