A Blessed Feast of St. Jerome to all

Today commemorates the death (or birth into eternal life, if you prefer) of St. Jerome, Biblical scholar and Doctor of the Church. Best know for his translation of the entire Bible into the common language of Latin (a.k.a. the Vulgate) from the Hebrew and Greek, he is also known for his Scripture commentaries and his feisty temper. He is the patron saint of archaeologists, librarians, Biblical scholars, translators, and students.

Why are there slips in the books?

As you enjoy the new arrangements in the stacks, you’ll notice that some books have slips in them. We have a number of books that need repair, whose call numbers are incorrect, or with the same call number as other books in that subject area. Books with slips indicate that there is a problem to be resolved. You are welcome to check out these books and we ask that you leave the slips in them. Use it as a bookmark! We hope to complete the project by early October. Update
