Signage announcing the new policy will begin to appear on August 1st and Libraries employees will use the weeks leading up to September 9th to educate visitors about the upcoming changes.

Remarkable Women of the Mellon Institute

On the Scotty Tales blog, Project Archivist Emily Davis highlights some of the exceptional women she's learned about through her work at the Mellon Institute.

"While organizing and preserving the Mellon Institute of Industrial Research papers, I have kept my eyes peeled for women who contributed to the many scientific discoveries made at the Mellon Institute. Nearly 7 months into this project, two women have captivated my attention thus far: Lois B. Whittle and Dr. Alice G. Renfrew.

William H. Putch Archives

A collection of materials from Carnegie Mellon University alumnus William H. Putch documenting his career as the artistic director of the Totem Pole Playhouse has been gifted to the Carnegie Mellon University Archives by his daughter, Pamela Putch, and son, John Putch.

Announcing: New Library Catalog

On Tuesday, March 20, 2018, University Libraries will launch a new integrated library system that will include a new library catalog. The new catalog will improve how users browse, search, and discover materials on library.cmu.edu.

The Libraries implemented its current online catalog in 1995. In that time, standards in web design have changed, technology has advanced, and the needs of users have evolved. It is against this background that the online system has become quite outdated.
