1 The library scavenger hunt was a waste of time
Comment from Anonymous on Aug 27 2012

We have had mixed feedback about the scavenger hunt with some students thinking was useful and others not thinking that it was useful. We will use this information to plan for next year. Thanks!

2 A couple of somewhat random history books that I think are rather essential to any academic library worth its weight are: Paul Robert Magocsi's "History of Ukraine - 2nd, Revised Edition: The Land and Its People", Raymond Carr's "Spain: 1808-1975", Peter Brown's "The Rise of Western Christendom: Triumph and Diversity, A.D. 200-1000, 2nd Edition", and Chris Wickham's "Framing the Early Middle Ages: Europe and the Mediterranean, 400-800". These books are, one and all, the best general treatments of their respective subjects. But they're only recommendations, nothing more. You've stocked a few books from Professor Raymond Carr, but somehow managed to miss his tour de force, his magnum opus. The book under discussion was written for the Oxford History of Modern Europe - a series of which you have many, but not all, of the volumes. ...Am I to believe that there are only three comments in total and none whatsoever for the entirety of 2012? Such neglect of the library, it could almost be considered abuse! Is it true one can pay $100 and be granted access to the library and its services for a year? I've been considering partaking of this opportunity, if indeed there is such an opportunity, for quite some time. Obviously, the very fact of posing such a question indicates that I'm not a student at Millsaps; rather, I'm a 20-something Jacksonian in search of a friendly, accessible, well-stocked, safe, clean library. And having browsed the online card catalogues of both Eudora Welty and Millsaps, and taking into account certain other factors, I believe your library is more suited to my needs and desires.

Thanks for the suggestions.

It is true that we don't get a lot of comments on our web site, but we do an annual satisfaction survey and get a lot of comments in person.

Yes, we do offer a Courtesy Card for $100 per year. Let us know if you would like more information about our courtesy card policies.
