Do you know all the great places to study in the library? Over the summer, Jennifer Sutcliffe, a volunteer with the library, created a video that will help you find the best spots for group study and quiet study.
Ever since the New York Times decided to limit their free access to 20 articles a month, some very sad faculty members have been showing up on our doorstep looking for full-text access. Good news! Most of the current New York Times articles online through the databases Proquest Newspapers and Lexis Nexis Academic. Unfortunately, neither of these provides access to images and pictures in the articles.
We created a quick video to help you locate today’s copy of the New York Times.
