For Faculty: Good News, Bad News

Social scientists, rejoice! A new platform for sharing social research has just been announced, just in time to replace SSRN (the Social Science Research Network purchased by Elsevier with unsurprisingly disastrous results). Though SocArXiv is still under development, you can already upload papers, pre-prints, and any research to which you hold the rights. Don’t forget […]

Enjoy Your Summer!

    The library’s social media presence winds down a bit during the summer. We’re still hard at work cataloging books, overseeing projects, and helping patrons, but you might not hear from us as often. If you’re on campus, stop in to say hi.

Congratulations to Our Senior Student Employees

The library is beyond lucky to have such great student employees. They check out materials, interact with patrons, shelve books, create displays and assist with ordering and preparing new library materials.
