Changes in the library

This week has brought many changes to Douglas Library.  Most notable, if you stop by, you'll notice packing boxes and empty shelves as staff continue to prepare for relocation to Stafford this fall so the learning commons renovations can take place in the existing library spaces.  We're very excited for our big move and the great new space that will be created while we are away.  

If you're scheduled to take LIB 101 this fall ON CAMPUS, your class will meet in 120T of the Stafford Building.  In the past, 202M was used, however this room will not be available this fall. 

Also of note - our research guides platform has migrated to an updated version, which has led to many adjustments to our LibGuides research guides and other library web pages.  Please let us know if you encounter any broken links or other issues.  We'll continue reviewing the site and updating items as they are encountered and appreciate your patience as we work out any kinks.

One last item to mention - several of our online resources have changed vendors and/or platforms.  For those accustomed to using APA PsycArticles, you will see this is now an EBSCOhost database.  Also, ProQuest made several changes to their databases packages, so there are new names and databases listed on our website.   

As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.  We're here to help and happy to do so.

New Look to Research Guides

Parts of the library website have undergone a facelift!  One of our vendors, SpringShare, has done a migration to version 2 on LibGuides, our Research Guides platform.  What this means:  You'll notice a new look when you visit our Research Guides and Databases pages.  We hope you like the new look!  Please contact us if you have any issues or questions, or if you encounter any broken links.

Pardon our dust...

Exciting times are coming to the library this summer!  We're preparing for our move to swing space in the Stafford Building for Fall 2017 so the 21st Century Learning Commons renovations can be done in the existing library spaces.  This means packing and moving books, DVDs and more! 

Because we'll be moving in August, library staff have begun reviewing collections and packing materials for relocation to Stafford.  Some books and other library materials may be temporarily unavailable for checkout until we unpack just before Fall semester starts up. 

We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause you, and we encourage you to speak with library staff if you need assistance locating materials here, or finding alternative sources for your work.
