Starting today, each suggestion, complaint, or question you ask us about our services on the yellow form and from the electronic suggestion form will be posted here, online on the McIntyre Library Suggestion Blog. Using a blog will allow each entry to have it's own URL, allow it to be coded by subject so you can search for previous answers to your burning questions, and also allow you to comment on the response.
We hope you enjoy this new service and please, keep those comments coming! We're here to serve you better!
