UNISTAR Mobile Now Available

Mobile Catalog

A mobile version of UNISTAR, the Library's online catalog, is now available on your mobile device!  You can do a keyword search for library materials while you are on the go.  Point your mobile device to UNISTAR Mobile to check out this new interface.

Great features:

  • Book jackets for many items
  • Email records to yourself or others
  • Text records to your cell phone
  • Save catalog items to preview later (these are saved for 15 minutes at this time)

You'll also find a link to UNISTAR Mobile on the Library's mobile homepage.

Snack Food Allowed in the Library

Recently the Library revised its Food and Drink policy to allow snack foods to be eaten in the building.  The only exceptions are while visiting the Special Collections unit or while using materials from locked collections in the Youth Collection, Art and Music Collection, and maps collection. 

Can you bring in that delectable steak for a late night protein boost?  Probably not.  But you can snack on some nuts and dried fruits instead. 

Please read the full policy for all the juicy details!
