University of Calgary: "Taylor Family Digital Library to Close for Three Months"

From The Gauntlet (Student Paper at U. of Calgary):

In addition to damaged journals, the library has also discovered that many texts have gone missing during the move [into the new library building].

Students’ Union vice-president academic Alyssa Stacy said the school blames the unnoticed theft on an inferior tracking system in the MacKimmie, a problem that will be fixed in the Taylor Family Digital Library.

“Because they have a more sophisticated system, they feel that once they record everything properly in the TFDL that theft won’t be that big of an issue,” Stacy said. “They also have a better security system in the TFDL.”

The school will also be shutting down the TFDL in the summer for three months to make repairs.
