Welcome to our new library website! We are excited about our new look and the many benefits and services that it brings to our community. As with any major redesign, we expect a few bumps along the road. While we are quickly addressing issues as we discover them, we invite you to help us by providing information and feedback as you interact with the site. Thank you for your patience as we fine tune it. As always, let us know how we can help you with this or any other information need.

Library Website Redesign

We are aware that there are some glitches with the new design and we are working to quickly address page and connection issues that are common with new redesigns. We are excited about our new page and the many benefits in conducting research that it will bring to our community. Thank you for your patience as we fine tune it.

For Faculty: please note that the book acquisition order form is available on the Faculty Services page right side, top of the list of links. The new interface has a "Search" form link at the top of the page under the page name on the left side on every page. On the main page the full search window shows by default. There you will find a link to "renew a book" and "Illiad login" (interlibrary loan request.) On secondary pages, selecting the "search" option will open the full form. If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact your liaison librarian.

We expect to have the major bugs and fixes addressed by the end of the week.

Technical Difficulties with A-Z list

We are experiencing some problems with our A-Z list of databases. Please do not use the alphabetical list at the top of the page to find databases. Until the problem is resolved, we suggest you use the "Limit by Subject" search option. You may also find it easier to go to the discipline subject guides to locate databases. Or, you can scroll through the 404 databases that are arranged in alphabetical order.

We apologize for the temporary inconvenience. We are working on a solution.
