Locations of Resources Or…where things are in the library Part 1 – Floor Plans
Circulation workers should be prepared to tell patrons where items are located within the building, including rooms, equipment, and library materials. Please become familiar with the types of resources and materials Buswell Library has and where these things are located, so that you may direct patrons correctly. You can also provide patrons with a floor plan brochure, or direct them to examine the wall-mounted floor plan displays located near the elevator and/or stairs on each level. Examine the floor plans that follow and locate the listed resources.
