Recognizing the demand for study space and the popularity of the Library study carrels, the Lamar Soutter Library has set aside all study carrels on the 2nd and 3rd floors for individual student use. Reservations for a study carrel need to be made through the online, self-service reservation system.
Downloading PDFs from the Library's website just got easier! A new feature has been added to the Library website. In the tabbed search box at the top of the home page you can find the "Get PDF!" tab. Enter a DOI or a PMID and in just a couple of clicks you can retrieve the PDF if it's available. If your PDF is not available you can request the article from interlibrary loan.
We’re excited to announce a new update to the LSL website: the A-Z Database list! The new list allows you to narrow down our list of 130+ databases by subject or by database type, which can really take some of the guessing out of your searching. We also included subjects based on your program of study, so you can see which databases your librarians think will serve you best. Still not sure where to start? You can easily reach out to a subject specialist right from within your search, either by using our Ask a Librarian chat, or contacting a librarian directly.
Are you ready? We are!!!
