New! Three-day reserves loans

Hostos Library is pleased to announce that as of Sept 29 (tomorrow!), certain reserves books will be available for a three-day loan instead of the regular two-hour loan.

As of now, there will be a total of 32 copies of books that will be part of this program, for the following eight titles (click each title for more information about the book, and then click on “locations” to find the call number):

Campbell Essential Biology with Physiology

Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry 

Chemistry for Changing Times

Dental Hygiene Theory and Practice

Essentials of Understanding Psychology

Kozier & Erb’s Fundamentals of Nursing Concepts, Process, and Practice

Microbiology: An Introduction

Visual Anatomy and Physiology

Please note that these are still reserves books, and must be returned on time so that your classmates have a chance to read them.  For this reason, there is a $25/day overdue fine–please remember to bring your book back within the three days to avoid any fine.

When you look up a book in OneSearch, please notice: if the book is just listed as “reserve”, it is a regular reserve loan with a two-hour loan period. It is only a three-day loan if the record explicitly says that it is a three-day loan.

Enjoy your reading!

 

 

The Art of Procrastination

NEW* at Hostos Library!

procrastination

A useful, light-hearted, very short book written by a lifelong procrastinator for fellow procrastinators. Learn about “structured procrastination” and see how it might be able to help you, and figure out if you too suffer from “right parentheses deficit disorder”, and how collaborating with those strange humans who do not procrastinate might actually be a good thing.

Don’t wait until the end of the semester to take a look at this quick, humorous, relatable read at the library. Call number BF 637 .P76 P46 2012

*New-ish…it has taken a little while to get around to writing this post.
