What's Gnu....

What's up with the coffee shop?
Renovation of the coffee shop was delayed and should be underway in October. In the meantime, the coffee cart will be open and the booths and tables have been moved to the vending room.

The online catalog got a makeover.
Just a little nip tuck, mostly cosmetic, but now when it says a book is on the second floor, it means it.

Check out the new library displays.
See an authentic freshman beanie in the third floor Archives display. The IMC has a sampling of fresh fall titles on display. Take a moment and take it in.

You can download a library special toolbar.
This customized toolbar lets you search the library, Google, cite a reference, ask a librarian, and check the weather with a convenient click. Get it here.... sort of the library webpage in a toolbar.

Check out your books at any location.
You can now check out books at either circulation desk... hooray for making life easier.

Office 2007 is available just about everywhere on the library computers.

There are new research databases and more full text journal articles.
Access World News, Mergent Online, Contemporary Women's Issues, Education Index Retrospective, Environmental Index, Tests in Print, the Rittenhouse Collection, Computers and Applied Sciences Complete, just to name a few. Also... you can login to databases remotely with your network logon and password now.

We were busy over the summer! How was yours?
