Olin Library will begin work towards implementing a browsing collection of monographs in Olin Library. This initiative will include the following steps:
Purchasing electronic access to as many of our Olin printed journals as possible
Relocating Olin journals to West Campus
Implementing a scan-on-demand service at West Campus that ensures robust and timely delivery of journal content to users
Relocating some monographs from West Campus to Olin. Criteria for relocation will be determined--not all monographs from West Campus will fit in the Olin stacks, even after transferring journals to West Campus.
