Library offers a wealth of info for students

Posted Thursday, March 30, 2006 - 12:00am

As the semester begins to wind down and many research papers and presentations are due in classes, the library staff would like to extend a welcome for students to stop by and tap into the great resources available at the library. These resources are here to help students during this understandably stressful part of the semester. In addition to scholarly materials in several formats for research papers and presentations, students have access to a quiet environment where it is possible to concentrate and focus on writing and studying. The library is a cell-phone free zone and a no eating zone although beverages with lids on the containers are allowed. And as several students already know, whispering and quiet talking is the preferred mode of communication.

In addition to the physical white building here in the center of our beautiful campus, the library would like to remind students that the library can be accessed virtually by logging onto the library web page located on-line at . The web page is available 24/7 for students, staff and faculty access. The library web page has a direct link for remote access to several of the library's subscription databases services like EBSCOhost, SIRS and Literature Resource Center. Students and other interested users need to have a library card in order to access the subscription databases from off campus.

Also, please visit the library to secure the password. The library personnel will be happy to provide assistance with this and many other library services and questions. During the month of April library hours may change to accommodate the holidays. For further information contact the front desk at 613-5209. Also, hours are posted on the front of the library building and the web page. We look forward to working with you.
