  1. too cold in the new Clark study space

    I love the newly-renovated quiet study space in Clark. However, I find it difficult to study there for long periods of time because it is so cold! I don't know if it is possible to raise the temperature, but if so I'm sure myself and many others would appreciate it. Thanks!

    • Title Page? Something?

      When I browse the stacks and find something I like I open the book. I search the title page, read a few paragraphs, look through the references, and if I really like it I move to a table and read the part that has something to do with my research subject. I need access to the inside of the book if I'm going to be happy with this service.

      • No search or browse results

        Sorry, any search I enter gets no results. Sample searches don't work either. Maybe it's a Chrome thing?

        • multi-term searches in Virtual Shelf give odd results

          I searched for "archaeology astronomy" (without the quotes) and it shows 19541 results, many of which have little to do with either term.

          A search for "archaeology" only finds 33 items.
          A search for "astronomy" finds 19521 items. (Why does "Anthology of statistics in sports" show up???)

          • Science archive (pre 1997)

            Hello,

            I have been unable to access the Science papers before 1997. As of now Cornell doesn't seem to have access to it. It would be great if we did.

            Thanks

            • implement for disciplines that rely on heavy browsing

              This is really nice! We know that the user community of Fine Arts rely most heavily on browsing, and their collection is split between campus and the Annex regardless of circ history. That collection would be a natural next step for implementation.

              • Databases on the shelf

                Web of Science seems a little out of place on the virtual shelf.

                      • eBook Collections

                        On your e-book collection page I did not see the Cambridge University Press Astronomy books which has 202 books and is growing with new titles.

                        899 = cambupebksastr

                        Perhaps you want to add it.

                        There is also Oxford Physics with 110 books but that is a backfile only with 110 books from 200 to 2008 (current from MyiLibrary)

                        899 = oxebksphys

                        You might want to consider adding these.

                        Steve

                        • Put a search bar at the top of the journals page.

                          ... that would jump you to the journal. It would save a lot of clicking and scrolling down the page (or searching).

                          • Provide an e-book link to my textbook?

                            I have a textbook, published by Oxford, that I've put up on-line at http://pages.physics.cornell.edu/~sethna/StatMech/EntropyOrderParametersComplexity.pdf. (They haven't given me permission, but my editor knows it is there and isn't complaining.) I'm not sure whether it is OK for you to include it in your e-book listings, but I'd be delighted.
