Board games for check-out

Need a study break?!?

We now have some board games that you can check out.  The games are located under the Dichotomy and they can be checked out at the Circulation Desk.  Games can be checked out for a week.

Games included: Clue, checkers, Tic Tac Toe, Connect 4 (board game size), Dominoes, Monopoly, Scrabble, Sorry, Life, Trouble, UNO, Yatzee, and playing cards. 

A life-size game of Connect 4 and Jenga are also available to be used on the main floor of the library, but not available for check-out.

Shortcut to find research articles

In many of the library databases, you can limit to academic or peer-reviewed journal articles.  Typically, there is a box that you can click that says "(Scholarly) Peer-reviewed."  This box is generally located on the left-hand side of the webpage or in the middle of the advanced search page.

In OneSearch!, there are 2 ways to limit to research articles.  Watch this short video to see how to do it.
