April RHS Library Newsletter

Textbook Return / End of the Year

As we move into May, inventory and fine-entering begin at the RHS library...if you don't plan on using your textbook up through finals, please urge your students to return them whenever they're able. We had a huge backup of students returning their textbooks all at once last year at the end of finals, so it'd be great to alleviate that this year if possible.
