Rod Library is making available collections of ebooks distributed by the company ebrary. These collections include over 55,000 titles issued by U.S. academic and trade publishers. Most of the titles were published in the last decade. New titles are being added on an ongoing basis.
The Library has been awarded a $220,981 grant by the Roy J.
Recently we have added several dozen reference books to the Gale Virtual Reference Library database. The titles added include Encyclopedia of Global Health (2008); Women in World History, a Biographical Encyclopedia (2000); and Encyclopedia of Cross-Cultural School Psychology (2007). Student technology fees funded these purchases, allowing the library to better support students in finding information needed for academic papers and presentations.
