Rainy Day Library Procedures – Balcony

The 3rd floor library balcony will be closed during any rainy days. Since the balcony doesn’t have a proper roof (it is just metal slats), this makes the area extremely slippery. This closure is to ensure the safety of our patrons as well as the longevity of our print materials. If you wish to study outside during this type of weather, please feel free to use the tables and chairs right outside the library doors, on the first floor.

Thank you for your cooperation!


Easter Egg Hunt 2018 at the Fuller Library!

From March 26th to March 31st, the Fuller Library will have an Easter Egg Hunt! We have hidden eggs all over the library. If you find one, bring it to the Circulation Desk and get your prize! Prizes include: $1.00-$1.50 off library fines (does not include printing) and candy. But, there are TWO golden eggs hidden as well, and finding one will get you a popcorn bucket.
Say whaaaat?!

PLEASE NOTE: This hunt is not for children – Fuller Students ONLY! We apologize but will consider having one for children in the future.

The Rules:

  1. One egg per person, per day.
  2. Egg must be brought to the Circulation Desk and THEN opened. Your name and possibly G number will be written down.
  3. Eggs are hidden in areas that anyone can access; none are in staff only areas of the library. They will not be behind stacks of books or large items for you to move.
  4. If you chose the Fine Removal prize and have no fines OR your fines are less than the removal amount, no money or change will be given. Fine Removal prize cannot be used as credit toward future fines.
  5. You do not talk about Fight Club.
  6. Golden Eggs – if you find one, you will no longer be allowed to play (sorry!). This gives everyone else a chance to find an egg, especially a golden one.
  7. Have fun!

If you have any questions feel free to email lib-systems@fuller.edu.

Your InterLibrary Loan Request Has Been…CANCELLED?!

Have you seen this subject header and gone, “Huh? What?! WHY?!?!” DON’T PANIC!

With Fuller Library’s new patron-driven acquisition system, InterLibrary Loan book requests are viewed as purchases first. We try to find the title first as an eBook, and if it doesn’t exist, then as a print book. If we are unable to purchase the title in either form, THEN we borrow it from another institution.

TL;DR: Your ILL request was cancelled because we bought it!

If you have any questions about our new patron-driven acquisition system, please feel free to contact us at lib-systems@fuller.edu.

Thanks for your time!
