As of July 1st, 2016, the Frank A. Lee Library at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York is closing its doors. In place of the physical library, a suite of services will meet the information needs of the NYSAES community. The most important highlights include:

Librarian liaison services in support of research, teaching, and learning. Mann librarians will be the primary contacts for the Geneva community and will be offering customized instruction and research support services to the NYSAES faculty, students and staff. Ashley Shea ’09 is assuming the role of librarian to the Plant Pathology and Horticulture Department at the Geneva station. Sarah Kennedy ‘10, also a Cornell graduate and most recently agriculture librarian at West Virginia University, will be joining the Mann Library staff on July 18 as librarian to the NYSAES departments of Entomology and Food Science. Both Sarah and Ashley will be making visits to the NYSAES in late summer and early fall to introduce themselves personally to faculty, staff and students there.

Library materials will be accessible to the NYSAES community in a variety of ways. These include requests from all Ithaca-campus libraries for physical items, BorrowDirect, Document Delivery, and Interlibrary Loan. In most instances, for items that are part of the Mann Library collection, turn-around times for delivery to departmental mailboxes will be 24 hours. All NYSAES faculty, students and staff will need to do is find the desired item via a regular search on the Cornell Library website and choose the appropriate delivery option.

The Agricultural Experiment Station has assumed the operation of the plotters that NYSAES staff can use to print oversize posters. The plotters are now located in A119 Barton on the Geneva campus under the supervision of Kate Keagle and Holly King.
