Did You Know? New Year, New Homepage

Just in time for a new year, the library has a new homepage! After faculty and student feedback on our design, we have rolled out a new, simplified look that highlights the library’s single search box approach to finding resources.  Use the library search box as the starting point for your research. Individual database and journal links, as well as ebooks and videos are still available on the homepage under the Resources tab. Program Guides and other guide links are all housed under the Guides tab. 

Check out our updated library tutorials for a quick walkthrough of the new look. You can choose from several short YouTube series:
