Library Copy Card Update

The West Campus libraries will be implementing some changes during the spring semester, by converting some of our photocopy machines in order to utilize the university I.D. card for making copies.

Please use up any photo-copy cards (Copy Mate or Standard Security) that you may still own. These copy cards will still be usable during the spring semester in a restricted manner - not all service units will have a copier that will accept these copy cards. There will be no refunds for any unused value left on these cards. If there are any questions please call 632-7138 for information.

New Exhibit Chronicles Stony Brook University

A new exhibit in the North Reading Room of the Main Library titled "From Forests and Fields to Bricks and Mortar" illustrates the growth of Stony Brook University through the use of images from the vast photographic collection maintained by Special Collections and University Archives. It is presented in celebration of Stony Brook University's 50th Anniversary. The exhibit features as its centerpiece the original architectural model used by former University President John S. Toll in the 1960s and early 1970s to plan the campus. Accompanying the 1971 model are 14 aerial photographs and maps that illustrate the rapid growth of the campus and the forecasted impact the University would have on the region.

The exhibit will be on display through May and was organized by Special Collections and University Archives.
