Come see our new (temporary) space in the Stafford Building

Greetings!  We hope the fall semester is going well for you.  In case you didn't know, the library has moved to the first floor of Stafford for the next 12-15 months while the second floor of the Moore Building is renovated to create our new Learning Commons.  The Learning Commons will house the library, tutoring and accommodative services departments for one-stop academic support.   

Meanwhile, library staff continue to offer the same great service and support in our new location.  Books, DVDs and calculators are available, as are three computers, printing and scanning.  A librarian is stationed ready to offer research and reference assistance.  Course reserves, quiet space and group media viewing continue as well.  If our computers are full, students are welcome to use 120T (just off the atrium) or 308T as open labs when not occupied by a classes.     

Library Hours:

Monday-Thursday 8AM-4:30PM
Friday 8AM-4PM

Again this semester we're pleased to announce the continued availability of technology support from our IT Intern Dustin.  Bring him your questions - he's happy to help.  Also, we welcome Jackie and Michael, our fall student workers - stop by the desk and say hello. 

If you need library-related assistance outside of our normal hours, please don't hesitate to use the Ask Us 24/7 reference service.  A link can be found on most pages of our website and guides.  Ask Us 24/7 connects you with a librarian from a partner institution, who can assist you with citations, researching articles, and more. 

The staff of Douglas Library welcomes you and wishes you a successful and enjoyable semester!

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.
