Carts of books waiting to be interfiledThe stacks, which contain our print collection (books and journals) are currently being relocated to the Murdock Library inNewberg.   This involves interfiling over 22,000 books and thousands of journal issues from the Portland Center Library (PCL) into the collections at the Murdock Library. 

Robin Ashford(Head of Portland Center Library and Digital Learning, Research and Instruction Librarian) and Gloria Doherty(Director of Digital Learning) will remain at the PCL.

Key Benefits

upgrading our courier to daily service (currently twice a week).  This will increase the speed at which items arrive for pickup at the Portland Center (positively impacting access to the GFU collection, Summit (Alliance), and interlibrary loan).
