LIBRARY NEWS
 

BUSINESS REFERENCE COLLECTION

The business reference collection (call numbers HB-HJ) is now located on the East Wall of reference.  This area includes several tables for individual or group study, and wireless access is available.

 

OFFICE HOURS

I will be holding office hours in the Wattis building, room 220, on Wednesdays from 10-noon. Please feel free to drop by if you have any questions about library resources or services, would like to request library materials, or if you would like to work together on research or curriculum development projects. I also encourage you to send students over who need assistance with research or assignments.

JOURNAL CANCELLATION

Local and statewide initiatives have made it possible for us to add hundreds of electronic journals to the library’s collection, resulting in a significant overlap between our print subscriptions and the titles we have access to online. This overlap means that we are currently paying twice for access to a large number of journals. Faculty and staff should have received a memo with titles proposed for cancellation.  The purpose of the cancellation project is to cancel print titles that are duplicated online, as well as any titles that do not or no longer support the curriculum or faculty research. If you have any questions, or would like to see the most up-to-date list, please contact Shaun at x7570.  For the most updated list, CLICK HERE.
