Take Our Survey – Please

Posted on March 7th, 2006 by

Want to be a VIP? As the library considers a redesign of our website, we need faculty perspectives on the library’s online tools and services. This survey will enable us to improve the quality of the services we provide for you and your students. If you complete the survey prior to Monday, March 13, 2006, your name will be entered into a drawing to become our “Library VIP.” As the Library VIP, we will deliver library materials to your office on campus for the remainder of the spring term. We’ll save you a few trips across campus! (Which, when the weather is like it is today, means something.)

L’Annee Philologique, the classic bibliography of Classics literature, is now available online, campus-wide.

If you haven’t tried Web of Science lately, you may be missing some of its nifty features. This interdisciplinary database covers the natural and social sciences (including history) and in addition to searches by author and topic lets you search by cited reference. Another feature, the “find related records” lets you seek out articles that share the same sources. And finally, a new “analyze tool” creates histograms of search results, analyzing a set of records by date, author, subject area, or other variables. Want to stay on top of new publications? Save a search and have new results sent to you weekly by e-mail. AHSearch, a version of this database with fewer features, covers Arts and Humanities.
