A First for Case - Checkout Best-Sellers, AudioBooks, & Magazines at KSL, A New Partnership with Cleveland Public Library
CPL@Case-KSL...the new browsing collection from the Cleveland Public Library, brings contemporary magazines, books, and audio books to KSL. If you missed reading the Da Vinci code, now you can check out the audio book version!
The new KSL and Cleveland Public Library partnership brings a CPL satellite browsing collection and circulation service to Case, with your favorite popular fiction, non-fiction, biographies, magazines, and more. The CPL collection utilizes a core competency of a major public library and complements KSL's deep research collections, giving you a study break or some weekend personal reading.
More firsts for Case:
• Check out magazines from this CPL@Case-KSL collection (Food & Wine, Sports Illustrated, Entertainment, People, Men's Health, Newsweek, & more.)
• Use the new CPL self-checkout computer (next to the browsing collection), with a CPL library card.
• Get a CPL library card if you don't have one. Staff at the KSL Main Service Desk now issue CPL cards to Case employees or students. (They also can verify your CPL Greater Access Card for active status.)
"We're very excited at the quality of the books and the variety of the magazines CPL is sending to us," says Karen Thornton, KSL Government Documents Librarian and coordinator of the new CPL collection. "It goes beyond the best-seller list, has every type of subject and literature, and recognizes our audience's interests and needs at Case." Thornton worked with Gail Reese, Associate Director of Collections and Personnel, and Joanne Eustis, University Librarian, in meetings with CPL librarians and administration, to define the type of materials that would interest the Case campus. "We worked from a CPL list, but more came, like renovation magazines, and it's picking up some of our previously cancelled titles," says Thornton. "It's already such a great collection!"
Relax & check out Rolling Stone, Architectural Digest, or an audio book of Anderson Cooper's Dispatches from the Edge, David McCullough's 1776, NYTimes' best seller Blink, Pulitzer Prize winner Frank McCort's Teacher Man, or something from Anne Coulter or Stephen King. Look for the CPL@Case-KSL collection banners on the KSL main floor. Grab a big black chair and read something new, or get a CPL card & take something home and enjoy!
