Library Web has New Look & New Search Tool
Today you'll see two significant changes to the library web site:
- Central Search is now available.
- The look of the library web site has been updated to correspond with the new campus web design.
Central Search is a new tool that allows researchers to search multiple library databases at the same time.
Central Search includes articles from journals, magazines, and newspapers and also includes books, DVDs, and other items in our library, as well as encyclopedia articles and other reference information. It saves time by letting you search multiple library databases at once.
Try Central Search on the library home page.
We’d like to get your opinion! After you try Central Search, fill out a quick survey to let us know what you think.
You can also send us general comments about the library web site or other library services.
