This is the final entry of our GSB Library Blog. The Library will continue to disseminate information through various means, other than this blog. Thanks to all our readers.

Leverage Your Returns

Of course you know you can return a book at the i-Desk whenever the library is open.  But did you know:

  • Late reserve books accrue large fines fast. Fines are deliberately high ($2/hr for the first 5 hours, $5/hr after that) to incentivize return of items urgently needed by classmates.
  • You can return books anytime the library is not open in the outside Book Return bin (to the right of the Bass Ctr main entrance).
  • Books left in the Book Return overnight will count as being returned the night before.
  • You can return books from any campus library except Lane Medical Library. We will check them in and return them to their rightful home.

No time to read? Listen!

Still haven’t read Lean In? How about Crucial ConversationsThe Lexus and The Olive Tree, Ariana Huffington’s Thrive, or Think Like a Freak?  If you have more interest than time, consider listening instead. The GSB Library’s collection of books on disc includes these titles and more by renowned authors like Chip & Dan Heath, Clayton Christensen, Lou Dobbs, Malcom Gladwell, Daniel Goleman, and GSB alumni Seth Godin and Keith Ferazzi. 

Check out our browsing collection of audio books next to the iDesk in the Bass Center, or search for “audio books” in SearchWorks for details on all audio books in the Media Center collection on the lower level. Limit your search to Business Library for best results.
