Proposed Library Café Menu

Following an extensive study, the librarians have determined that many university courses can be supported online through the use of the library’s collections of e-books, electronic journals, and scholarly databases. Unfortunately, none of the library’s digital initiatives have resulted in a satisfactory electronic alternative to traditional analog food. As a result there will be no e-café option on the library website at this time. The library will collect patron feedback on the proposed menu through April 1, 2011.

If you are interested in a sampler of other offerings in the library that will be in place after April 1, please click here.
