Request an online resource

Did you know the Library maintains an ongoing ‘wish list’ for e-resources?  By faculty request, new online resources this semester include Encyclopedia of Race and Racism and Vital Statistics on American Politics 2015-2016.  During the academic year, we review and set priorities, depending on available funds.   Faculty may inquire with their library liaison or directly to Katie Bauer or Jennifer van Sickle. Review the wishlist here.

Flipster trial extended

The Flipster trial has been extended until November 27th (Thanksgiving weekend).  Download the app here and read available popular magazines cover-to-cover online via your computer, tablet or phone. Printable coloring books are also part of the trial. The app is available via iTunes or Google Play.

Library institutes changes during Finals!

There will be two changes to standard operating procedures in the Library due to Final Exams.   First, we will accommodate your need to study late into the night by expanding the 24-hour zone into the south Reading Room on Levels 2 & 3.  Second, we will not permit visitors into the Library during this time.

These changes are in effect from Sunday, December 13 until December 22, 2015.

Good luck on your finals and papers!
