The schedule calls for two walk-throughs of the GLB. The path outline below should be followed for each walk-through. Check in with Circulation Supervisor, Central Library. Sunday – Wednesday it is Robert Wright. Thursday-Saturday evenings, it is Ben Darling. If there are any particular concerns for that evening, they will advise you. If not, you should proceed with the path outlined below. Please note: get a supply of “if I were a thief” slips to carry with you on your rounds. Make sure all building exterior doors are locked. This includes all of the exterior doors of the 1966 wing of the building (Special Collections) as well as the 1941 section. A key to use the elevator can be borrowed from the Circulation Desk. All areas of the library: 1. If belongings are left unattended, please put a “If I were a thief” slip on the material. 2.
