11/16: Fenwick Library on the Move!

George Mason University - Fri, 11/13/2015 - 18:46

On November 16, 2015, University Libraries starts the move of more than one million books and bound journals, current periodicals, microforms, special collections and archives, government publications, various equipment, and nearly 100 library staff into the new Fenwick Library facility. Comprised of the newly constructed space and existing wings B and C, almost everything in the current library will be relocated to the new Fenwick Library. The original Fenwick building (Wing A, where the main service desk, reference books, public workstations, periodicals/microforms are now located) is not part of the new library. With the massive amount of items involved, it is anticipated that the move will not be entirely completed until February 2016. Keep up to date with what’s happening where and when with the Fenwick move at fenwickfocus.gmu.edu. You can also follow on twitter @fenrefstaff  #FenwickOnTheMove

Celebrate University Press Week

George Mason University - Tue, 11/10/2015 - 12:37

Join Mason Publishing Group and University Libraries in celebrating University Press Week! In 1978, President Jimmy Carter proclaimed a University Press Week “in recognition of the impact, both here and abroad, of American university presses on culture and scholarship.”

That influence continues today, as does the increasing vitality of university press publishing programs, the many ways and means by which works are now produced and distributed, and the urgent need for articulate discourse in times pervaded by sound bites. Today, a renewed University Press Week highlights the extraordinary work of nonprofit scholarly publishers and their many contributions to culture, the academy, and an informed society.
