Times Select Goes to College

The New York Times apparently is having second thoughts about its Times Select program (the one that locks selected content up unless you are a subscriber).

It includes the full text of 32 scholarly journals published by the American Anthropological Association (AAA), most dating back to the first issue and about half continuing to the present.

SFX Downtime Sunday morning

The Journals link from the library’s home page and the button in our databases will be disabled from approximately 9:30-10:30am Sunday morning, February 11, as the University of Minnesota moves the SFX server and runs updates on the software. Thank you for your patience!

Happy Darwin Day!

In honor of Charles Darwin’s birthday, we’ve pulled together some library books, on display near the front door. Don’t want to come out in the cold? We understand. Luckily, the British Library has put Darwin’s complete works online. You could also browse a museum exhibit, or see how clergy around the country have discussed the […]
