Congratulations Brian T. Johnstone!


Professor and Systems Librarian Brian T. Johnstone’s article, “Sirsidynix: How to leverage your ILS to support equipment loans in other campus departments.” was featured in the March 2017 issue of Computers in Libraries (CIL)Computers in Libraries is a highly regarded publication in the field of library information technology. Considered on the cutting edge, CIL focuses on the latest computer technologies and how they can be applied to library systems and services. Professor Johnstone’s article discusses the subject of equipment lending by libraries. It focuses specifically on his innovative solutions using the Bucks County Community College Library’s integrated library system (ILS) to support the Department of the Arts lending of high-tech audio-video equipment to students. Professor Johnstone’s creative ideas and detailed explanations are sure to help systems librarians and countless others faced with the hurdles of loaning and tracking expensive equipment to students. We thank Professor Johnstone for drawing international recognition to Bucks, and we congratulate him for his accomplishment!

Bucks Students, Faculty, and Staff can access Professor Johnstone’s article by clicking here or by simply searching the EBSCOhost databases!

SILENT BOOK CLUB: Mark your calendar now for this unique new event…on Thursday, March 9, from 4:00-6:00, interested readers will meet in the Library’s CoLab 1 (L310) on the third floor for two hours of leisure reading. Silent Book Clubs are gaining in popularity across the country and beyond because readers crave uninterrupted reading without distractions. Read about the creators of these events at their website https://silentbook.club/ or follow them on Facebook. Bring a friend and bring your favorite beverage as we won’t be serving refreshments. This is all about the enjoyment of reading! Afterwards, you’ll be hungry, so why not invite some fellow readers for a Dutch treat dinner at a local restaurant to chat about your books?


If you are not currently engrossed in a book, why not check out the Books Across Bucks shelves placed strategically across our three physical campuses? Take a Book/Leave a Book is the idea for these. The books are free and you are sure to find inspiration. Shelf locations include Grupp Lobby, Gateway Lobby, Gateway 1st Floor, Rollins 1st Floor, Rollins 2nd Floor (near the Book Store), M&M Lobby, Hicks Art Lobby, Founders Lobby, LBC Lobby, and the UBC Common Area (next to the Lobby). If you have questions: Margaret.Montet@bucks.edu
